If anyone is in the area and interested, the awesome folks over at the Romanian Baptist Church of San Leandro are putting together a benefit dinner tonight February 11, 2012 at 5 pm for the girls that we’re working with here in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Over the last two months with your generous support, we’ve gotten this mission started. We’ve leased a building, furnished it, and have run begun classes in English and Computers. So far we have about 20 children in our morning session and as many as 10 girls who come to study in the afternoon from a nearby brothel/karaoke club.
It’s amazing to see God’s plan unfurl. So far we’ve successfully removed three girls from the brothels and we’re currently working adamantly for four more who have begun to open up and reach out. These girls have the opportunity to start fresh and in the process, come to know God.
In the last month, we’ve held two clinic sessions and done numerous over the phone consults with our organization’s doctor, Dr. Carla, who has dedicated the next five years of her life to working with the people of Cambodia and especially to the girls we are helping.
Please come to the benefit dinner as they’ll be showing a video we put together with what has happened so fat and what is planned from here on out. Also, we’ll be attempting a live Skype!
The dinner will be held at 14871 Bancroft Ave, San Leandro, CA 94578 at 5 pm. All proceeds will go directly to helping the girls.
Thank you all for your support.
Lygia, Steve, Arella, & James
