How Love Brought Jantu to Life | Cambodia/Thailand Update

God is doing big things in Cambodia because of your prayer and support! Meet Jantu Like most of the young children we meet on migrant construction sites in Thailand, 3-year-old Jantu was sorely lacking in basic developmental skills–both physical and social–when we were first introduced to her. Since she became a part of Construction of Hope with Lifesong Thailand, we have had the incredible privilege of watching her come alive. Once painfully shy–and unable to comprehend or interact with her surroundings–she is now an eager recipient of her newfound love and attention. Because of your faithful prayer and support, she knows she is loved. The new sensory bins project in the learning center is a favorite of hers. Her motor skills development is improving by leaps and bounds. Her growing confidence has allowed her to start helping other little ones acclimate. One little girl–Soksalai–recently joined our center and was having a … Continue reading

Little Li Hou’s Big Decision | Cambodia & Thailand Update

Because of your support and prayer, God is doing exciting things at Lifesong Cambodia & Thailand. Take a look– 14-year-old Chris became sponsored in February of this year during our Valentine’s campaign to #LoveOne. He is a wonderful young man who loves God and has prayed faithfully for his grandmother to accept Jesus into her life. The good news?–God was pleased to answer his request and now, not only does Chris’s grandmother know Jesus, but so does his uncle and several other members of his family.   Because of some recently donated equipment and new partnerships, Lifesong Cambodia and Thailand will soon begin a new soccer program for children in Bangpli! Not only will this provide a great time of play for kids, but–Lord-willing–it will create many additional opportunities to give the Gospel and to provide discipleship.   Recently, we were excited to rejoice in many recent baptisms, including Li Hou, a precious … Continue reading

Battle of the Chefs: Cambodia Update and Opportunity

God continues to do big things for the children of Cambodia and Thailand, and we are blessed to have a front row seat to His work.  Specifically, 40 Cambodian and Burmese children now gather daily at the Construction of Hope Project in Bangpli, Thailand, to receive education, skills training, and discipleship. With the recent start-up of several new and exciting programs, this summer has produced a vibrant display of their unique talents and abilities. The recently-developed cooking class, for example, has not only produced many tasty treats, but it has also revealed the culinary and leadership potential in Chris, Amy, and Joseph. . As the oldest students in the program, these three young people each lead a team of mini-chefs that go head-to-head each week to see who can produce the most delicious dish. Not only does this encourage team spirit and fun competition amongst peers, but it builds relationships … Continue reading

Meet Children with Radical Courage to Hope | Cambodia Update

Every morning in Bangpli, the children gather to share testimonies of how God is working in their lives. How humbling it is to hear from children who have suffered deep hurts or horrific losses, yet they joyfully share personal examples of the goodness of God in their circumstances. These kids have already learned to hold their lives and possessions with open hands–accepting as from God every good and perfect gift. David, whose story we have been privileged to share in the past, is often eager to contribute. Originally from Myanmar, he began working on a fishing boat when he was just 7 years old. Now 11, he has been living for the past couple of years on various construction sites in Thailand. After being found by Pastor Vino during an outreach to his construction site a year ago, David has become a leader among the other children, and is part of the student evangelism team. These children go out regularly … Continue reading

What Do Valentine’s Day and Christmas Have in Common? | Cambodia Update

Holidays allow us to celebrate, but also to redeem opportunities for sharing God’s love and making new connections. In countries like Cambodia where many people do not yet know about Christmas, believers take the opportunity to celebrate Jesus’ birth long into the new year. In Bangpli, Thailand, for instance, Pastor Vino and his church people are still taking full advantage of using gift boxes filled with school supplies, hygiene products, and tiny toys to develop new connections with children and families in need. For Pastor Vino, the Christmas holiday is a tool to share the love of Jesus with those who still need it. HELP A CHILD IN NEED The good news? Children of migrant workers from previously unreached construction sites are now joining the learning center at the church, and whole families are coming to evening worship services to hear more about the love of Christ that has captured the heart of Pastor … Continue reading

Meet David | Cambodia

Your prayerful support helps take the hope of the gospel to children in need. Meet one of those children. David is the son of migrant construction workers from Myanmar. He has been a part of Pastor Vino’s church and learning center for the past year. In addition to growing physically and mentally through the education and nutrition initiatives at the church, David is quickly developing into a strong leader. Slow to speak but quick to pray, David leads by example through exhibiting gentleness and kindness with the other children. He loves times of worship in the church and leads his family in worship each night at their camp on the construction site. Recently, David shared a testimony of answered prayer. After missing the daily truck that came to pick up him and other children from their camp at the construction site, David decided to walk the 4 kilometers (approximately 2.5 miles) to … Continue reading
