The Battambang Church of Christ (BBCC) in Northwest Cambodia is grieving the loss of a faithful and loving sister, Ming (auntie) Phalla, who was a noble wife and mother to three children. She first heard about Jesus at a refugee camp after being orphaned by and then surviving the Khmer Rouge genocide. In January of 2013, she and her husband Bouthla became disciples of Jesus and never looked back. Ming Phalla faced many challenges as a disciple including persecution, health challenges, and having her house burn down. But her faith never faltered.

She spent the last ten years managing a restaurant that trained young women rescued from vulnerable life situations. She was the rock of her family, she greeted everyone she came across with a big smile, and she was not only ready to go to heaven but was eagerly looking forward to it. At the hospital, even after her emergency surgery, she sang songs and shared her faith with staff until just hours before God called her home. 

Ming Phalla’s sudden death has left her family with the significant expenses of preparing and transferring her remains to her home province for burial during a Covid-19 travel ban in the country. Any support we can give her will glorify God and reflect Ming Phalla’s heart to selflessly help others in need.

Thanks for your consideration.

John Doe, a person in need that prefers to remain anonymous, is a well known member in the church of Battambang, Cambodia. He presented with a difficult head injury that could not be treated at the local hospital and was transferred to another hospital. The amount of $2,150 was required to pay for the surgery.

Mommy Jane, as she is affectionately known in her congregation, has been a faithful member of the Davao Church for more than 22 years. She and her late husband had three children, John, Joyce, and L.A. They all became disciples, but after some hardships, they walked away from the faith. Jane has remained faithful through all of the difficulties and late last year after many prayers her son John was restored.

Unfortunately, John had to undergo brain surgery and now the family is under a lot of stress due to the debt they have incurred. Mommy Jane and her family are humbly seeking your support to help pay for the hospital expenses. Your love and generosity is greatly appreciated!

I am Trinicris Santos a disciple from ICOC Makati who has a father named Cecilio Santos a disciple from ICOC Taguig. My father has been confined in the ICU since last December 3, 2020 and still there now. He has had three strokes and has suffered through many complications like pneumonia, ulcers and septic shock. Our local church has been incredible helpful and supportive, but we understand that their funds are limited. I am humbly asking for your help to pay for hospital bill expenses and other medical expenses. This is a very difficult situation for me because I am the only child and breadwinner, but due to the pandemic I lost my job (and only source of income) on March 15, 2020.

With the prayers of our brothers and sisters and your support I pray that I will be able to bring my father home for Christmas. The current hospital bill is close to $5,000 (as of December 20, 2020) not including the doctor's fee. The doctors believe that my father can be discharged in the next few days, but hospital requires us to fully settle our bills before discharging the patient.

Your hearts for helping us are greatly appreciated!

Cambodia Education Fund

The Cambodian Education Fund is designed to help the children of disciples go to private schools. Public schools in Cambodia provide a very substandard level of education, and do not equip the students for success in the future. The students we support have been sponsored by ETF since they first started school, and they are required to keep good grades. The support they get for tuition and books is only offered to families in the church with limited income. By supporting the education of these amazing people, they are able to grow up and become leaders in the church and in their community. All of them want to be disciples someday, and two of them already made this decision. On the SEE YOUR IMPACT page you can read many of their stories because, they have been sponsored by many generous people over the years. Thanks for your consideration.

About Chim Dara:

My name is Dara and I am 20 years old. When I was 14 years old I had to stop going to school because my family needed me to go to Thailand for three years to work and provide financial support. Life was very difficult while I was there because I did not have a workers permit and I constantly had to move from one job to another. When my Dad became a disciple, church members helped me get back in school. I am working hard to catch up with my studies, but it is a big challenge for me. Things with my family are still very difficult financially because my mother is chronically ill, and my older brother has unfortunately developed a drug problem, but I am hopeful that obtaining a good education will change the course of my life. In the future I want to teach agriculture, help poor families and help kids like me stay in school. But most importantly, I hope to spread God’s word to others.

In the midst of dealing with a global pandemic the Philippines has also grappled with a ruthless typhoon season that has caused major damage in the country. Many have lost their loved ones, homes, and belongings leaving them with only the clothes on their back.
Yet even in the face of physical devastation, disciples have held tightly to their faith and continue to find strength in God's love. Our brothers and sisters are in desperate need of assistance during this incredibly challenging time.
Angie and Rose are cousins and both part of the campus ministry. Together they serve as song leaders in the worship ministry. Their home was flooded from the water that rose from a nearby river. They are in great need of help to restore their home, purchase groceries, and replace some of their lost items. Your help for these young ladies greatly appreciated.
