We realized that all of these ideas look good in print, but how does that play out in real, every day life? We have asked that question many times, but have not let it discourage us. Steps of Justice has responded to the needs that were brought before us, and with the help of many, we have been able to see justice roll down like a river into the lives of others. Here are a few projects we have had the honor or working with.
Children at Risk Cambodia– This non profit serves a community who was forcefully displaced from their homes and relocated outside the city. The Children at Risk ministry works with this community through house building, sanitation clinics, children and youth programs and home bible studies. Steps of Justice started partnering with Children at Risk four years ago. Since then, we have been a part of some incredible things:
- 7 homes funded and built by volunteer teams.
- Painted the Children at Risk center in 2015 with a volunteer team.
- Funded 5 students to attend high school and college to pursue careers in medicine and law.
- Ran sanitation clinics and kids programs each year on our Cambodia trips.
- Funded and helped build 6 homes for the poor in Cambodia.
Freely In Hope– This ministry is a faith-based nonprofit organization focused on restoring dignity with survivors of sexual violence through holistic educational opportunities and platforms for dreams to be fulfilled. Last year through our Advent Conspiracy fundraiser, we were able to send $3825 to help with the purchase of Freely In Hopes new center. This will help the ministry grow and serve more women.
YWAM Ships– In 2015 Cyclone Pam devastated Vanuatu leaving many without clean, life giving water. We partnered with YWAM Ships in Kona, HI to bring $3000 worth of water filters to the county. This was funded by individuals like you and served 100’s of people in the affected areas.
YWAM Blankenburg, Germany– Thanks to the generosity of others, we were able to help serve incoming Syrian Refugees learn German. We worked with YWAM Blankenburg, Germany and helped with the purchase of German language software. They are using this software to teach newly arrived individuals German. It was a privilege to serve this community in practical ways.
BBN– Currently we are partnering with Bridge Builders Network, a non profit in San Diego California who serves newly arrived families with refugee status, both Syrian and Afghan families. BBN helps children and adults learn English and continue their education. They also help families with with job training, getting their drivers licenses and helping integrate into American Culture. They also run after school tutoring programs for kids and teens.
Water Filtration Project– Over the past few years Steps of Justice has provided clean water for hundreds of families in Haiti and Cambodia. We have done this through the help of donors like you, and the fine folks with Sawyer Water Filters. Over the past two summers (2017-2018), we have handed out over 100 filters, and helped facilitate a water filtration seminar to a small village outside of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Today, there is a church in that village, as a result of the villagers seeing God’s care for them.
Each year we are taking teams to Cambodia as well as San Diego. We would love for you to join us on one of these trips.
