Preventing Trafficking: One Life at A Time

Lhj Sophea (not her real name), lives in the Vietnamese slums of Kratie, right above the banks of the Mekong River. Her mother has recently opened a secret brothel in this small market town, and her two older sisters both serve clients there. One of them is HIV positive. Living in this sort of hell, what hope is  there for Sophea’s life? Yet, in the midst of this, God has brought into her life a wonderful young woman, Sambath,who has taken on the task of not only of planting churches in this unreached area, but of helping kids like Sophea. Due to Sambath’s influence in the slum, Sophea’s mother agreed to place Sophea in a local hairdressing school, which is a paid apprenticeship: meaning that her mother had to lay out money to get her into the program! Due to this, Sophea is now living in a totally different environment, with several other Christian girls, and receives her meals there as well (she was previously one of the children in our feeding program). *PRAY* for this young girl that she continue to be trained, and trained by Sambath to become a dedicated Christian. Sambath visits her as well as many other children in our programs in Kratie.
