Little Children Praying to a Big God

Kampong Leng “Island” is one of the most precious places in Cambodia. CCM helps support two orphanages there. We have graduates of our Cambodia Bible School (CBS) ministering at both orphanages, but we also provide a nurse that takes care of the children’s physical needs. Our young preachers’ mission is what James would call true religion: reaching out to the community with the good news of Jesus Christ and caring for the orphans. Additionally, CCM doctors make several trips to Kampong Leng during the year to check on all the children.

The orphans will smile and laugh as they play with nothing more than a rock and a stick. And oh, how they love to sing songs about Jesus! They have such a pure faith. It’s free from the glamour, glitter and clutter of the world that blinds so many from seeing Jesus clearly.

In the photo above, the children are praying for their daily bread or, in the Cambodia case, RICE. They have so little, but they are big in gratitude. They are little children praying to a big God who loves and cares for all his children.

May the Lord Jesus Christ continue to bless Sokhom and the rest of the workers at CCM as they labor to bless physically and spiritually the orphans, widows, poor, sick, Buddhists, Muslims, and beyond.

A PICTURE PAINTS A THOUSAND MILLION WORDS

Some of Sokhom’s assistants checked on our Cambodia Preaching School graduates and sent the pictures below.  This gives us a great visual image of the active ministry being done by our CBS graduates.

Let the Little Children Come to Me

…for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these (Mark 10:14).

One of the beautiful blessings of sharing Jesus in the remote villages of Cambodia is witnessing the
spiritual hunger and thirst of the young people. We praise the Lord always for the many Buddhist and Muslim adults who turn to Jesus for salvation, but seeing young Cambodians come to Jesus is especially exciting looking ahead. The spiritual landscape of Cambodia in the future will more and more be transformed into the image of the Son of God. These Christian young people will soon be leaders in this country, and our efforts now will pay spiritual dividends in the kingdom of God at an increasing measure. God bless you for being a part of saving precious souls in Cambodia!

Burn Baby Burn

In Acts 19:11-20 the Apostle Paul leads many to salvation in Christ in Ephesus. People carried handkerchiefs or aprons from Paul’s body to the sick, and they would be healed. Many brought their magic books and burned them in the fire as a sign that those powers were no longer necessary since they have Jesus in their life.

As we preach Jesus in the remote villages of Cambodia, Buddhists and Muslims will come to be baptized into Christ wearing superstitious bracelets and multi-colored belts to protect them from the evil spirits. Sokhom literally checks peoples’ wrists and waists as they come forward. When he finds a person wearing a religious-magic item, he talks to them about the uselessness of it compared to the real power of Jesus to work in their lives. Then he uses it as a teaching tool and talks to the crowd to help them see that Christ is all we need. These evil spirits have no power compared to Jesus! Others will then remove the bracelets and belts and we will burn them in a fire – just like Acts 19.

One year Sokhom held up his Bible in one hand and a lighter in the other and jokingly said to me, “This is all I need in the villages of Cambodia.”

BURN BABY BURN.

Cobra Soup Is Mm-Mm Good!

Campbell’s Cobra soup is mm-mm good!

Years ago, Sokhom and I reached out to an organization that helps with building projects in poor countries.  On the questionnaire they asked if there were any poisonous snakes in the area.  Sokhom had me write, “No poisonous snakes. We ate them all!”

That story rang true this week when one of our workers walked by the guesthouse where I stay when in Cambodia. He stepped over what he thought was a stick, but it turned out to be a five-foot long cobra!

Sokhom said they killed it with a rock, and then one of the students made some excellent cobra soup. According to them, it doesn’t taste like chicken but definitely tastes better than rat.

Sokhom has made a great sacrifice to serve the Lord as a missionary in his native country of Cambodia. As a result, God has blessed CCM in a monumental way. Together, we have physically helped over 200,000 poor people in villages since 2009. Greater yet, we are no longer able to keep track of the number of Buddhists and Muslims becoming Christians because of our CBS graduates along with several hundred house church leaders sharing Jesus in their respective villages.

Maybe cobra soup is not mm-mm good, but the mission work of Sokhom Hun and the CCM team is a sweet aroma and sacrifice to the Lord!

Hit and Run Won’t Stop Gospel

This brother got hit by a car while driving on his motorbike to come hear the gospel. He had minor cuts and scrapes, but the neighbor he brought with him broke her elbow and arm. Some of our students took her to the hospital in Phnom Penh and covered all the medical expenses. Then after he was treated by our nurses from abroad, he stayed with us to listen to the Bible lessons! What great faith is this?!

Our January Medical Mission Trip was full of precious souls like this coming for spiritual and physical healing. The staff of doctors and nurses and other helpers from abroad did an amazing job showing the love of God to people who have so little hope! When the gospel message of God’s love through Jesus is preached together with loving actions from Christian people, great things happen!

Blood Brothers



Thanks to Phanat Ouch for this post!

Samon (left) was a high ranking soldier of the Khmer Rouge. Sokhom (right) was a commando soldier of American-backed Lon Nol’s army. They were sworn enemies and shed blood against each other during the war, BUT the shedding of Christ’s blood turned them from enemies to brothers. This is the power of the gospel! Samon was the key organizer for this event to happen in his hometown. Not only were we able to help over 1000 people with health care, but we also preached the gospel to them this whole day! Had to share this amazing story.

Cambodia Christian Ministries Medical Mission Trip

Three weeks from now our medical team will travel to several different remote villages of Cambodia that have little or no access to medical care. We will provide medical exams, prescriptions, teeth extractions, and eye glasses to thousands. To see the faces of the poor as our massive bus full of medical people turns into their village will drive one to tears of humility. These people are so precious and so innocent and have so little compared to all of us on the bus. It is an enormous honor to bless them with the love of Jesus.

All workers must cover their own airfare to Cambodia, however we do need funds to cover medicine, eyeglasses, food and lodging for the workers, rental of the bus and driver, etc. We can provide medical care for $4 to $5 per patient. We estimate the cost of our January medical mission trip to be about $40,000, but that will provide over 10,000 patient treatments! Simply amazing.

We invite you to help us help the poorest of the poor in remote Cambodian villages. You can donate online or send your donations to Cambodia Christian Ministries, 10550 Marsh Lane, Dallas, TX, 75229.
