Cambodia

My very best friend in high school moved away to Hawaii of all places. There she met her true love and they married once she graduated. This was in the late 1970's and early 1980. She and her husband eventually met a couple who had escaped to Hawaii from the Killing Fields in Cambodia.

The Cambodian couple's name is Keat and Sally Kove. Remarkably, after working very hard in the U.S. for several years, the Koves returned to Cambodia to take the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ there. Cambodia was ravaged by communism and is still living in the wreckage left by wicked people.

Today Keat and Sally Kove are laboring for the Kingdom of God. Last year when my friend's family came for a wonderful visit, we got to see their pictures from a trip over to Cambodia. A little while ago my friend's husband talked to us about the great need for missionaries there. They need people who will come help them in every way including teaching English. They need short and long term help. If you or someone you know is able to consider this, check out the Kove's website at http://www.cambodiachurch.org/ to see the history of the ministry, the conditions of Cambodia, what the needs are there, and perhaps how you can help.
