Iris Cambodia has a two part response to the heart cry of Cambodia. One, they desperately need Jesus. Two, they need to see their people set free, educated and empowered against trafficking. We are driven by love to reach the lost and we recognize the huge call to see His justice reach an entire Nation. For us, it is both and more! Seeing families educated and being impacted by the person of Jesus is such a huge joy for us.
As with all Iris bases, missions is our joy. The simple, logical outcome of knowing Jesus. We started our outreaches in 2017 and it has been beautiful to watch what Jesus does among the people as He miraculously heals, delivers and sets people free.
Bi-annually our team go to various places in Cambodia to share our prevention education programs and the Gospel. We travel to different provinces to encourage local pastors and find out what their needs are and assist the churches to provide for the needs of the people in these communities. We have also had the opportunity to distribute solar powered bibles. We try to meet the community’s immediate needs of food and general health care and providing basic wound care. We believe He can, and will, make a way for us to see and entire nation saved and freed from trafficking and sexual abuse.
In the last year we have focused on taking our outreaches to the borders of Cambodia where labour trafficking is a huge problem. We have developed our education program to include information on the realities of being trafficked across international borders and how to recognise the strategies used by traffickers to lure both children and adults.
