Orphans

Orphans, Marriage, and Infants

Sopheap and Sreyroth grew up as orphans on a remote island in Cambodia where CCM supports orphanages. They eventually married! It’s a sweet story of two people coming to faith and love together with Jesus in the middle of their marriage. Sopheap graduated Cambodia Bible School in 2017 and oversees the several hundred chickens on our farm. Sreyroth graduated from the university in Phnom Penh majoring in veterinary medicine.

Recently, the two were blessed with a new baby, but the infant had some serious physical issues. Thankfully, with the help of CCM donations and the children’s hospital in Phnom Penh, they were able to get the critically needed surgery and the long term outlook is very positive! It’s really amazing what God can do with generous servants with a heart for the poor! God bless you for helping us help the precious poor in Cambodia.

Cambodia and Coronavirus

As the Coronavirus spreads around the globe, some of you have asked how Cambodia Christian Ministries is handling the situation. The latest news is that there are less than 100 cases of Covid-19 in the country, but being a third world country, there is no telling what the exact number is. Also, being a third world country there is less medical expertise and fewer supplies to help those with the virus. All the schools in the country have been closed. Travel in and out of the country has been reduced greatly.

Sokhom and I have been visiting regularly about appropriate procedures concerning the pandemic and CCM activities. We have closed the front gate for the time being. The only exception is that two of our men go to the market daily to get food. When they return they wash their hands and change clothes. Our doctors are paying attention to the developing situation, but until more information and protective equipment becomes available, they are simply following the guidelines to slow the spread.

Sokhom’s spring trip to the US has been postponed. We continue teaching Bible via Skype to the Cambodia Bible School students. Thank the Lord for technology! And in spite of everything, construction continues on the fish pond, building up the levy, putting a better roof and walls on the multi-purpose building for future LeaderCare seminars, etc.  Needless to say, there is still plenty to do and plenty being done!

Please include Cambodia and especially Sokhom and the rest of the people at CCM in your prayers. Feel free to contact me for any further information. God bless the friends and partners of Sokhom and CCM as we continue to bless the precious people of Cambodia with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

In Christ,
Mike Meierhofer

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.

Medical Mission Update!

We thank God for a great January Medical Mission Trip! Our team of doctors, medical personnel, and volunteers worked together to serve thousands of Cambodians living in poor, rural areas. On top of that, 47 people heard and responded to the good news of God’s love in Jesus!

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!

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.

All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth

We met this precious little girl on a remote island in Cambodia. She is extra special to the Lord because
she is an orphan and we know how God feels about orphans, pleading on their behalf (Deuteronomy 10:18; Psalm 68:5). He also commands us to take care of the fatherless (Isaiah 1:17).

One of the good works of Cambodia Christian Ministries is to help orphans. We minister directly to them
as we travel on medical mission trips. Our three fulltime doctors also travel to the villages and treat their needs. Additionally we provide monthly support to them, thanks to generous givers with hearts of
compassion.

If you would like to bless some of these beautiful Cambodia children, please contact Mike Meierhofer, mike@cambodiaministries.org or 214-351-3731.
