How You Can Help:

About Phnom Penh: The capital of Cambodia is a city in transition. It is growing rapidly with new economic opportunities, yet Cambodia is still one of the world's poorest countries, with around one third of people living on less than one dollar per day.

The Crisis: After the fall of the Khmer Rouge in 1979, every system in Cambodia was broken. From that time, according to the International Justice Mission, prostitution increased by 90% due to corruption and economic desperation. But in the last ten years, while trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of women and children still continues, there has been a rapid growth of primarily Christian groups that are reversing the tide of these abuses.

The project: When Christina Stewart scouted for the January 2015 JOC in May of this year, she saw the need for those who are rescuing lives from this exploitation to receive healing and pastoral care, both to recover from their own painful past, but also to have better tools to set free those they are rescuing. In November 2014 Christina and a small team will travel to Phnom Penh. With the invitation from “Hard Places Community” she will conduct a three day seminar involving both teaching and prayer, free to any who attend. The costs involved are to have the seminar “Coram Deo (Facing God) translated into Khmer and printed, as well as one return plane ticket and minimal costs on the ground.
