Flooding in Cambodia

Dr.Yem Tevyneath

We have never seen in the history of Cambodia such tremendous storms that have destroyed people’s lives, their homes and the rice fields where they make a living. I could not believe with my own eyes, trees that have been here for hundreds of years were completely pulled up from the ground as well as the many houses that have been completely damaged or collapsed from the storms and flooding. Even the Joyce Meyer Ministries Children’s Home was flooded. Praise God there was not any structural damage, just some clean-up work to do. But in the midst of the flooding, children were still able to go to church and praise God while the flood waters were literally under their feet.
The recent disastrous flooding and heavy storms have resulted in thousands of families living in terrible conditions in Kampong Tom, Siem Reap, Kampong Cham, and Ratanakkiri provinces. Please pray for the great needs of the thousands of families among the hundreds of local churches living in these provinces whose lives have been affected.
