Sokhom Hun suffered yet survived the brutality of Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge (1975-1979) in which over 3 million Cambodians died. Sokhom lost sixteen members of his family, including his father who was killed in front of him. Most Cambodians who found refuge in the U.S. and other countries have little desire to return to Cambodia. Sokhom converted to Christianity from Buddhism in 1981. After years of service to the Lord in the U.S. Sokhom returned to Cambodia in 2009 to serve as a full time missionary. Sokhom's sacrifice is resulting in the salvation of many Buddhist and Muslim Cambodians.
One Bible teacher from America had the amazing opportunity to share the Gospel inside of a Muslim mosque. Afterwards, a Muslim man approached him and asked, "Why has it taken you 2,000 years to tell us about Jesus?"
"The Cambodian people are hungering and thirsting for salvation in Christ, and they are receptive to the Gospel as Cambodia Christian Ministries (CCM) shows Christian love by meeting their physical needs as well as feeding their spiritual hunger with the Bread of Life." Mike Meierhofer, President of CCM
