Each Friday from now until June we are going to be posting stories on Justice and Cambodia. This summer we are taking 3 teams to Phnom Penh and we would love you to come with us. All these stories come from Steps of Justice teams and individuals that went to Cambodia with us in past years. They are amazing truths of pain and healing both for the people of Cambodia and the individuals who went on journeys there.
An update from Don and the Tuk Tuk drivers. Check previous post.
A few weeks ago our friend Arno posted a story about some tuk tuk drivers in Cambodia that we are friends with. We asked if anyone was interested in helping support the Bible Study that these new followers of Jesus are hosting each week and a few of you responded. As a result, the Bible studies for the next 8 months and 1 week are fully covered, thank you. Here is an update from Don, Pictured above, as to how things are going. (I left the letter how he wrote it, so you can see the rawness of his writing and the fact that he is trying to write english for us to understand).
“Hey it is so great to heard from you, i am so glad and i am so happy for all of our friend they are decide to follow Jesus. I am going to study the Bible with them every Wednesday, but sometime they are busy, but Som bat he cam every week. When Jeremy and his team they are stay here they are always pay for coffee and breakfast for us now no body to pay us so i want you to pay for us. can you do that? Much love. Don and family.” From Feb 24
Then I received this. “Hello my big brother Philter. Thank you for your e mail.

This is why we continue to go back to Cambodia each year. We are not into mission tourism, we are into discipleship. This story is a result of years of friendship and discipleship from the Steps of Justice teams, the long term YWAM workers in Cambodia and all the other teams and individuals who have come into the lives of these men. Thank you for your investment, is is growing the kingdom.
