(Cambodia)– Child sexual abuse is common in Cambodia, but an evangelical ministry is reaching out to this abused segment of society. Book of Hope‘s‘s Rob Hoskins describes the abuse and how they hope to help. “They’re estimating that upwards of 60-percent of the children in Cambodia have been exposed to child prostitution. So, in this abused country we’re really hoping to work with the education system to provide God’s word. And, that is being translated this year and by fall of this year we’re hoping to distribute 150,000 Books of Hope in the public school system.” Hoskins says they’re trying to raise the money needed to distribute these Books of Hope. “It costs us 33-cents to get one of these copies of the Khmer Book of Hope in to the schools. So, every dollar that someone gave would reach 3 kids. So, we’re needing a total of $50,000 for this year.” Pray that God will provide the funding needed. Pray too that many will turn to Christ as a result.
