February 2016 – From Julie’s blog. I have noticed a young boy, he must be about ten, he is always carrying his younger sibling with him. He is always on the defense, borderline aggressive with the other children, the weight of the world on his shoulders. I am slowly gaining his trust, I have started to practise a few english words with him, but he is quite reluctant/embarrassed to speak to me. It’s like he has to remain hard around his peers. We have decided to find out where he lives and try and get to know his family. Please pray about this.
I felt overwhelmed this week when I started to focus on the children, maybe that is why I don’t do it all the time. I can tell the difference between the children who are under financial oppression, or otherwise, passed on from their parents and the ones who are allowed to be children. I wouldn’t know what it was like to be a parent and worry about where the next meal was going to come from, there is no fall back system here. Life is different, when you have no money you really do have no money.
December 2015 We attend New Life Fellowship Church http://www.cambodiaoutreach.org/ and we have recently decided to support a young family from the church who are church planting in the poor provinces . This family will live at the house for a nominal rent – Thy Kingdom come … Thy will be done.
October 2015 There are now over 70 children learning about Jesus every Saturday morning in the village of Pre Sor
July 2015 Christine and Julie will be in UK for 6 weeks from Sunday 28th June to Tuesday 4th August this year. We will use this time to share with the church in UK – some of the wonderful things God is doing in Cambodia and at the same time invite people to visit us in Phnom Penh.
February 2015 The House is extended to include 3 extra guest rooms and a second kitchen/living area so more visitors to Cambodia can be accommodated. The House supports volunteers with Daughters of Cambodia www.daughtersofcambodia.org and workers at Hope School www.hopeschool-cambodia.org
According to the news from VOA, Cambodia has 68% of Youth under 30 years old. It’s a great opportunity for missionaries and the harvesters of God to bring change to this beloved nation. May God bless Cambodia.
November 2014 The House explores the possibility of serving in a second slum-village in the Pre Sor region of Phnom Penh ”The number of slum-dwellers in Phnom Penh grew by nearly 25 per cent this year to more than 100,000 people, according to a government report released yesterday. By the end of the year, 105,771 people lived in informal settlements, compared with 85,807 at the start of 2012. Slum locations — defined by the government as informal settlements erected on state public land — increased by eight to 511. In total, just over 25,100 families reside in Phnom Penh’s slums. The figures were published in the Phnom Penh Municipality’s annual report.” http://www.phnompenhpost.com/national/phnom-penh%E2%80%99s-slums-swell-2012
