Whether working with young men who have been deported to Cambodia from the United States, or helping children find hope in a desperate place, Chantha and Sharon are fulfilling the work of Hope Now For Youth in Cambodia.
Hundreds of men and women, former gang members in the United States, have been deported to Cambodia. Chantha assists them as they work through the culture shock of being sent to a place they have never been, and where the people speak a language they do not know.
Hope Now For Youth has partnered with the YMCA, and our goal is to train some of the deported young men to reach out to those who are in greater need than they are–to help them take the focus off themselves and place a greater
emphasis on helping others.
Please continue to pray for Chantha and Sharon in this endeavor. Next month, our executive director will travel to Cambodia to see the work that is taking place there and deliver new training materials for Chantha to use as he helps young men. It has been four years since we have had an onsite visit, and Chantha is looking forward to the encouragement.
