In the Bible reveals God’s attitude toward orphans and widows: He cares very deeply for them. God commands us to protect and care for orphans and widows (Psalm 82:3).

Recently, Serve Cambodia has helped a boy from Harvest of Hope Centre who is living with a single mother and two brothers. He has joined HOH since he was 7 years old. He is a mature, kind, industrial with his study and never being lazy, he keeps coming to school even he gets sick as he could. Since he was 5, while he was playing around with other boys in the village, he crushed the nail into his left upper eyelid. When the mother returned from work she only applied tiger balm on it and will never note that it is a severe injury. Until the boy turned to 7 years old the scar has been developing as a tumour on the skin of his eyelid.

Husbands and fathers play an irreplaceable role in a family. When the man is not there, the wife and child can suffer in many ways. Sadly, because the mother is so poor and won’t be able to bring her boy to the hospital for any checkup or treatment. Likewise, she has no job because of getting older with blurry vision and won’t be able to sew a good clothe like before, so she was halted from the work.

We concern about this and we share this news to our partners finding the supporters to cover on his eyes operation. We are really thankful for our friends in Australia for their generous support, care and pray for this boy.

Finally, from 25th of February 2019, we assisted this boy to get a good treatment in one government hospital, called: Preah Ong Doung Hospital.  After blood testing, CT scan and diagnosis from the specialist Doctors, his eye was found that there was a tumour which needs the operation immediately. Until on 28th  of Feb 2019, he got the surgery successfully.

Then the tumour was researched whether it is the cancerous tumour or non-cancerous tumour. And on 20th of March 2019, we brought him to the hospital again for the finalized result. Fortunately, there is no evidence of malignancy.

All things considered, this is our pleasure to look around who need help and attention like this. Significantly, Serve Cambodia found that there is a tremendous blessing in serving and standing up for orphans and widows as well.

Water Baptism

Fellowship of Hope Church is very proud of the young school students in our communities around the Phnom Penh and Happy Village areas who have heard the Gospel for so long and many times from the servants of God, and lately they have decided to follow Jesus. On February 09, 2019, at Mlup Mean Water Park, there were 43 children who received water baptism.

Our members of Fellowship of Hope Church organized the program.  We sang praise and preached short message about the meaning of water baptism, after that we make two roles for baptize in a large swimming pool. There were two pastors minister as baptizer for our students.

After the program finish, all students have chance to swim in the pool and some students are also learning to swim until noon, and we have lunch together.

On Sunday service, we find that six of the students came to join the church service to hear the Word of God, and join the church activities and fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ.

We believe that this event is a fruit of hard work of the people in our church congregations (including some of them who work or volunteer in the Serve Cambodia education centres and other local community development projects) who never neglect in demonstrating God’s love to the local children, preaching the gospel and to God be glorify!!!

The Fellowship Of Hope Church has collaborated with the Perth Bible College  in Australia to create the annual Pastors Conference to help the church leaders, youth and many other people for our many different member church congregations across Cambodia. Every year we have a total of about 120 leaders joined in the conference.

In this the 9th year of the Fellowship Of Hope Church Pastors Conference, Perth Bible College has organized this program again with the helping and supporting of our local churches – a partnership that continues such very helpful training once again. The theme this year was, “Born again to a Living Hope.”

37121007_1872456766144591_7025820554925965312_n 36885938_1860595477330720_4226011295415009280_n

Our purpose is to help the leaders, pastors, youth in all the churches to understand more about how to teach God’s word, evangelism, caring and encourage the church member to keep their faith and their believe. And more is to share experiences or testimonies with each other and build up the relationships of support with each other through a training course. Especially the pastors from rural areas often comment that they no longer feel alone but feel part of a larger family of support and care.

All participants are happy to have gained knowledge, experience, communication, and good lessons, which are useful for them to train others in their local area. We strongly hope that this will be continued in the future. Thank you very much for Perth Bible College, which has makes this program possible every year and supports the local leadership of our church network.

The Serve Cambodia 10th Anniversary

Over the many years, our community development arm Serve Cambodia has been able to provide free teaching services to students whose families are poor and cannot afford to keep their children in school without support, and also other children whose families were relocated from slum areas into the new location that was called Happy Village. Even though this happened such a long time ago, but we do not forget about the time we started and the opening of our official Serve Cambodia Organization, it has now been ten years ago.

26233957_1796296557108475_1392958276_n27485109_1830075160397281_949266096_o

We have achieved a lot such as our student had finished their high school and were employ working so they can support them self and their family as well. Some of them have also since attended university and some have completed trade qualifications. The adults in Happy Village have been getting better with their earning income for their family, some of them starting to enlarge their own income by selling products from their home and this help them to get another small income while they are at home, along with the man that is working outside.

We can see that they had been changed a lot if we compared when they were at the slum area. Now their life has been changed, they have safe shelter, job, transportation, children being educated, and are accepted in the society. Also from this assistance in their lives, some of the families have managed to save enough of their income to buy their own land and build their own simple house that they can live in independently now.

20180802_094719 20180802_094613

In order to congratulate this, Serve Cambodia had recently hosted the 10th Anniversary of the Organization for the Memorandum of the day that started our organization till today. Staff and students from the three education centers, parents/guardians of the students, and the Happy Village Community had been coming to celebrate our event at TLC center.

They all looked happy and can’t wait to see our program, not so long we start our program straight away.  We have also organized competitions, acting, music and singing contests. Time goes by, at the end of the program we had prepare meals and drinks for the audience. Our program is finished well, and the people are really excited and happy about remembering what Serve Cambodia had done in their lives.

Many thanks to all the teachers, students and those who were involved that have prepared for this program. You all have been organizing, practicing to make this event running smoothly. A very special thanks to all of the supporters and donors that always support us since the day that we started Serve Cambodia Organization.
