Lost in Cambodia’s Jungle

One woman fought a tremendous but losing battle to provide for her family alone until she met the God who saves.

Sokun, her husband and their three young children lived a village near the border of Cambodia and Thailand. The family had little income but were still making ends meet; Sokun sold vegetables in the local market, and her husband worked as a logger. 

The family was rattled, however, when Sokun’s younger sister showed up on their doorstep with her three daughters, all under 5 years old. Her husband had divorced her, and she now had little means with which to care for the children. 

She abandoned her daughters with Sokun. 

The family’s food store and already meager income simply couldn’t keep up with six children, most of them toddlers.
