Vietnamese Refugees Find New Hope in Cambodia

NewHope Ministries, an Alliance outreach in the Vietnamese community of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, is bringing the good news of Jesus to refugees living in desperate poverty. Khang Nguyen, a C&MA apprentice from Canada who serves with NewHope, reports that 57 people from seven churches were recently baptized.  
“Four of the candidates were from Tacheik Village, where we are planting a new church,” says Nguyen. Among those baptized was a 15-year-old girl who has cancer; her parents were also baptized. She is being treated for the disease as a result of NewHope Medical Ministries. According to Dr. Huyen Tranberg from the Alliance team, the girl has good chance of surviving.  
“Please pray that God will completely heal her,” Nguyen says. “She and her family are growing in Christ. They have taken down the ancestor altar and worship only God.” Nguyen has a Bible study group in their hut every Thursday, with an average of six people. Plans are under way to have Sunday morning worship services in Tacheik Village. Seventy percent of the people who were baptized are students from NewHope schools. 
“We are grateful to see that the church is continuing to expand and that the medical and educational ministries are continuing to be used of God to reach the Vietnamese communities in Cambodia,” Nguyen adds.
