The group with a few of World Relief Cambodia staff

We started Wednesday with prayer and worship at the WRC offices which involved choruses in Khmer supported by Vannak on guitar. The team introduced themselves and shared some wonderful testimonies. Those that had lived through the ‘holocaust’ - the Pol Pot era of 1975-1979 - told some inspiring stories of how God had transformed their lives. We learnt how WRC workers approach the challenge of sharing the gospel with rural families (where two-thirds are illiterate) using flip charts, illustrated books and leaflets.

Pawl and WRC country director Samedy Sok explaining how they teach the Bible from creation to Jesus’ resurrection.

It’s difficult to explain here how we felt after our visit to the Genocide Museum, but we were reassured by the idea that God is using the terrible evil at that time to create a better country for the people of Cambodia. Today, 2.7% of the population are Christians and the church is growing and giving hope for the future.
