Why Cambodia?

Linn

Because Nita was only 13 years old the first time she was trafficked.

Nita grew up extremely impoverished in South East Asia. She never had the opportunity to attend school because her family didn’t have the resources to send her. They relied on her to find the food necessary to survive each day. Nita was only 13 years old the first time she was trafficked. By the time she was 15, she had been sold to two other brothels. Nita remembers feeling completely hopeless, wishing she could die. To survive the daily horrors of her enslavement, Nita, like so many other girls in her situation became addicted to drugs.

On her day of rescue, Nita was brought to Rapha House. One might assume it would be a happy day, but initially she was sad, confused, and overwhelmed. Her body craved the drugs to which she was addicted. She began intense therapy with her counselor, received medical attention and proper nutrition for her damaged body. Over time she began to trust the Rapha house staff and open up to the girls who had also faced exploitation. Rapha House joined her in the fight for justice. She had opportunities to attend Bible studies and to grow spiritually. At Rapha House, we believe healing is a holistic process and strive to give our girls the tools they need to begin the healing path.

Linn

Because 12 year old Linn and her family were promised a way out of poverty, but she found nothing but torture, humiliation, and pain.


Korm

Korm

Because Korm was left to die in an alley after she had lost her value to those taking advantage of her.

Cambodia has a monumental number of issues that create an environment where sex tourism and the sexual exploitation of children is prevalent.

Our Family

What will we be doing.

Lindsay and I will be working together to help further the work that Rapha House is doing by focusing on the difficult transitionary period as the girls progress out of the safe houses. We will also be working with the local church to help disciple and equip local leaders to effectively continue bringing the gospel to Cambodia.

When will you go?

Great question! We feel a sense of urgency to start our work in Cambodia, so we're trying to hurry but not rush as we prepare for the move and transition. We will be raising our own monthly support, so once we reach 100% of our projected monthly budget, we will fly to Cambodia! We are raising our own funds to offset the cost of our employment and to allow funds that are donated to Rapha House itself to go directly to the girls and their related expenses.
