Recently, our Cambodia team moved into action to assist a province about an hour and a half away from Siem Reap during a flood that engulfed their market, destroying much of their food supply. This province has a population of 10,000 people, but only two of those people are believers.
As the first Christian organization in the area, they distributed food, in turn catching the province Chief’s attention. He told them about an older woman who couldn’t walk that would need the food taken to her. She hadn’t walked in ten years.
After meeting the woman, the team realized they didn’t want their help to end with food. Concerned about the woman’s health, and with no doctor able to come for an entire month, they decided to pray over her.
After praying, they lifted her up to see if she could walk.
She pushed them away and danced.
One week later, the team went to visit the woman to make sure they weren’t fooled. She was still walking and exercising her legs. The entire village verified the miracle – she hadn’t walked for ten years, and now she could walk again.
When the chief saw this, he said, “You can do whatever you want here.”
Pray for these village leaders and the team in Cambodia as they continue to build meaningful relationships in the villages around Siem Reap.
Every year, approximately 2.6 million tourists visit Angkor Wat (near Siem Reap where the Adventures Cambodia team is based) each year. In 2019, travel and tourism contributed for over 30% of the country’s economy.
Due to the effects of Covid-19, tourism is down 99%!
Because the Siem Reap area of Cambodia’s economy relies heavily on tourism, many people have been without work for a year and are in dire need of food and physical help.
The Cambodia team continues to serve in as many open doors as they can during the Covid-19 pandemic, and God continues to show up!
The team is committed to both aiding in these needs and discipling communities toward long-term self-sufficiency and Gospel hope, and is seeing more and more doors open, even when the world is shut down.
Recently three single women came to receive food from our Cambodian staff. They were from a rural area and were desperate for food for their community. Besides giving them what they needed, our staff shared the gospel with them. They were invited to come to a house church, where they gave their lives to Christ.
They will not only bring food back to their village, but the hope of the Gospel!
Continue to pray for the team in Cambodia and those most affected by the devastation to their livelihood around Siem Reap.
