What Is a Cambodia FLOG?

A “FLOG” is a flood blog!  🙂

I wanted to tell loving people like you, who help provide relief to those who are hungry and hurting, about the flood and the relief effort in Cambodia.  Last month Sokhom, our three doctors, and our 15+ preaching students hand-delivered many tons of rice to the poor in remote villages.  Recent tropical storms and broken dams had caused tremendous flooding, which inflicted losses and suffering on the people.  Most of the rice went to those who were hit hard a few hours northwest of CCM Center, but all of it went to villages where we have either graduates or house church leaders we partner with.  These relationships allow us to show the love of Jesus in a clear way.  Sokhom and his team will make another delivery later in January as the region continues to recover from the destruction. 

I also want you to know that every dollar given for flood relief in 2020 has been spent for that purpose. In 2021, we continue to have no administrative fees and all donations will continue to go to the ministry and work in Cambodia. We thank the Lord so much for your partnership with us to physically and spiritually help the poor of Cambodia. God bless you for your love for the disadvantaged!

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.

Check out Mike’s presentation, which includes photos and video from the trip. Also please continue to pray for Sokhom, our students and their families, the people of Cambodia, and the church there. God continues to work, and we are thankful to Him for your participation and support!

JESUS Fish

The flooding in Cambodia this year caused a lot of damage. Crops were washed out, homes, buildings and roads were damaged, and things were very chaotic. But God works in all things!

We have called it a flood of mercy for many reasons. First and foremost, because the Good News of Jesus has spread even more as a result of the flood. Thanks to your support, our preaching students, doctors, and other servants were able to show God’s love to the people with bags of rice to eat, rice stems to plant, and even the occasional water rescue. Beyond this, God is even using the fish that were lost from CCM Center to spread the name of Jesus.

You see, when the dam burst, our fish farm washed out and we lost 50-60 thousand fish!  But then people downstream saw the fish (blue catfish and tilapia that are unique to the area) and wondered where the fish came from. Those in the know told the people they were from Jesus Place. Jesus Fish from Jesus Place from the Jesus People.

Jesus used a fish to pay the tax, two fish to feed thousands, and tons of fish from the other side of the boat to show the disciples who he was. Perhaps God isn’t done using fish to spread the gospel!

Flooding Relief Update

The floods from the typhoon (worst in our province since 1951) devastated the rice crop in Cambodia, which people depend on for food. Thanks to your generous support, Sokhom was able to purchase 15 tons of rice seed for people to plant. In a few months, the harvest will be ready and food production will be back on track. He also purchased 5 tons of rice and will purchase more as it becomes available to give to the hungry. Each of these bags will carry a message of love… a literal message (a note actually attached) and a symbolic message of the love of God through Jesus Christ.

There had been a delay in getting the rice to our CCM Center due to the washed out bridge to the west and the main road to the east. Since it would take months for the government to do the necessary repairs, we finally received permission from a government official to pay to fix part of the road. That allowed us to get the rice in and handed out to the people in need. Price gouging has been an issue as well due to the shortage.

The other good news we are happy to announce is that the school and all of the CCM Center is cleaned up and running smoothly again. Skype teaching has resumed, as has treatment at the medical clinic.  Since the buildings are made of concrete (no sheet rock, etc.), the clean up went quickly considering the circumstances.

We still need ongoing funds to continue meeting the needs of the people. $30 feeds a family for a month! We also need funds to restock our fish hatchery and to bring in 1,500 loads of topsoil for our 70 acres (washed away).

If you can help, please contact Mike (214-533-4266) or send your donation to Cambodia Christian Ministries (10550 Marsh Lane, Dallas, TX 75229) with Flood Relief in the memo line. Please feel free to share this update with others.
