This year, our Cambodia staff initiated outreach to the families of prisoners. While other ministries assist prisoners, our staff saw a great need to care for the families of these prisoners, who are often forgotten.
Many wives of prisoners have young children who don’t know their fathers because they’ve been in jail. This puts enormous strain on the mothers to provide for their children without the support of their husbands.
With this in mind, 160 speaker boxes containing Gospel content were distributed this year. Recently, when our team visited some of the communities that received the speaker boxes, even more of them were requested by families eager to hear the Word of God.
In addition to the speaker boxes, FEBC Cambodia distributed school supplies, rice, bicycles and clothing, to help provide for some of the physical needs of these communities as well.
