Church Giving Triples in Cambodia

 Despite the worldwide economic downturn, church giving recently has doubled-and even tripled-in some Khmer Evangelical churches in Cambodia (The Khmer Evangelical Church is the C&MA national church in that country).

¬†“In light of the present financial crisis, the church families here were strongly convicted by the message of giving that has been preached in the churches,” says Alliance missionary Soeuth Lao, who serves in the border city of Poipet. “Although the actual number appears small (according to the local standard of living), the amount of giving received has been tripled in Santepheap Church and doubled in the Poipet Church.”

The increase in giving is especially significant considering the extreme poverty in Cambodia. “Cambodia is set to be the country hardest hit this year by the global economic crisis in the Asia Pacific region,” the World Bank stated on April 7, 2009.*

“We are encouraged by the tremendous response of God’s people and will continue to trust our Him to meet all our needs,” says Soeuth.

What You Can Do

Praise God for the sacrificial giving of His people in Cambodia. Pray that He will supply their needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
