Fellowship of Hope Church (FHC) is continually committed to conduct our annual Pastors and Leaders conference in this year with our fabulous partner from Perth Bible College (PBC). The conference was held from 10th till 15th July 2017, which located in Siem Reap at the Dara Reang Sey Hotel. The first day had arrived, all pastors and church leaders were enthusiastic and gathered together by catching the 2 buses ahead to Siem Reap which has a breathtaking world heritage site known as AngKor Wat Temple, as they spent approximately 6 hours on the jounery. Significantly, there were 110 pastors and leaders who took place the conference for this year.

The theme of the conference was ‘‘Serving with Integrity’’, likewise the Godly servants have to loyally serve and illustrate God’s willing with love and honor to others, by not determining about race, color, religion, sexism and nationality…etc. Moreover, the young leaders are motivated to involve more by the following tracks which paved the way by elder pastors. Particularly, there were 2 sessions in a day at the morning and the evening, the first session at the morning was divided by 2 phases, there was a teaching session which followed by groups’ discussion, and then four different workshops after the break-time. And in the evening, there also was other teaching session. Interestingly, there were a great spirit of worship and unity in the place and everyone was challenged to draw closer in order to work much more effectively for the kingdom of God before each session was begun.

During the conference, the three senior pastors from FHC’s “mother church” conducted a 2km marathon along with 35 participants from the conference joined, as they want to raise money for building the mother church building in Phnom Penh which locate in Takmao. As all participants had to pay $2.50 each for church building fund. When this building is completed, FHC would not need to rent the existing church facility.

Kakada’s story

Life can be very different for one child compared to the next. Some children live in the good family which cherish and love them and provide the sufficient meals, clothes, money and welfare with fully protection from their families. In contrast, some children don’t have enough food and anything that can develop them to reach their potential. Or sometimes, they have to work to earn income to support their families and this stunts their economic development and limits their future opportunities.

Kakada is a student at one of Serve Cambodia’s education centres, and he is an astute and outstanding student in the government school system and also in the Serve Cambodia centre, as he often gets number one in his classes. He is so sociable in the school. Some of his friends go to him and need his assistance of lesson explanation. Undoubtedly, all the teachers are so proud of him.

Unfortunately he lives with only his mother, brother and sister, as his father passed away since he was young. At the present, his mom is quite old, sick and unemployed from her previous work in the garment factory. Anyway, she still does her best to find a small income by washing the clothes, toilet or dishes for other people and earns approximately US$1.50 a day. As she has desire to see her children have bright future and proper job, she always encourages and urges her children to study hard and she is willing to carry on the existing burdens to look after her children. Her actions have shown a strong and positive example to others in her community for how they can change the future of their families.

Serve Cambodia has also given Kakada’s family additional housing and food support in the period that his mother still didn’t have any good job, so that she didn’t feel the need to remove her kids from school and send them to work. Serve Cambodia has given opportunities to many poor children like Kakada to receive free education, nutrient meals, study materials, uniforms, healthcare provision and last but not least, when they finish high school, Serve Cambodia also fulfils their dream by supporting them to have higher education or vocational skill in any university.

We also encourage anyone who wants to be part of transforming the Cambodian children’s lives and help them to reach their potential in the future, as they certainly are needing your support and prayers for them. The best practical support that you can give is to sponsor a child through Serve Cambodia, which gives the resources that are needed to continue this work.

Parent-Teacher Meetings

Parents Meetings are always held in each Serve Cambodia education centre every 3 months. This is important to cooperate with student’s parents, to assist to look after their children’s study at home. It helps to strengthen and enhance children’s capacities in education and particularly, it is the time to encourage parents to continue to send their children to school rather than push them into the labour force at a young age.

What’s more, we also spend time to teach parents with special topics that are related to daily issues like family management and hygiene, as well as other issues that they face when living in very poor slums or villages. Also, it is a great time for the teachers to narrate how progressing study of their children recently.

Thereby, Serve Cambodia cooperated with HELP Cambodia team from Australia last November 2016. To assist to hold a parents meeting in 2 education centres, the Harvest of Hope centre and the Light of Hope centre. The team provided their magnificent example and high dedication to support their children at school and the pivotal advantage of education for their children in the foreseeable future.

They added that, their children in Australia have a good job with a good payment after they finished their tertiary levels at schools, so they not only stop relying on their family but also to able to support their families. The team also took their time to play with kids by leading to play games, drawing pictures and sing songs.  Moreover, they delivered the study materials and burgers to children and parents. After finishing assemblage of parents meeting, a majority of parents expressed their delighting emotion to have joined this meeting.

All in all, education is an extremely sharp sword to break the poverty in Cambodia, and we believe that the young generation will transform their lives, families, communities and country from the poverty stricken situation for their foreseeable future.

We would like to say Thank You profusely for all our wonderful friends, partners and donors whom always honestly care, support and sponsor any child so far, as without your help it would not be happened and changed in their lives.

In this locality, we met many people who are living in squalid & cramped condition and some are homeless and living under the tree. Moreover, they are earning the money about USD$2.50 a day through pick up the recycle stuffs like plastic and cans to sell. They have to go to the dump at 4pm till 4 am, and they rest at the daytime.

So Serve Cambodia worked with an Organization called Mission Direct from England, to build the 8 bamboo houses for people who live under the trees.

We have spent for 4 days to build those houses, so we dig the holes to put the pillars, make the structure of house and then we nail the bamboo and tin.

After we built the house, people are very delighted to have it for their families and they will not stay outside or stay under tree at the night time like before or get any harm from something as well.
