Family rejects new convert

by Greg Hamlin, Director, International Bible Institute of Siem Reap, Cambodia

We baptized another young lady today, Sopen. When she started coming to worship, her family objected then they locked her in her room to prevent her from coming. She still never missed. Finally, she climbed thru a window and left home.

She came to us and after discussion with her we let her stay with the school temporarily until she got on her feet; she already has a job.

Her mother finally accepted her. But her brother and family totally rejected her.

She continued worshipping and studying the Bible for this last month. Today she was baptized into Christ.

She will be a fine dedicated Christian making her way in life with Christ. Rejoice with us!

Randal and his wife Vicki have lived and worked in Brazil since Nov. 1984. They have three children, two daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren. He likes to read novels in his back-porch hammock. http://randal.us

    What a wonderful report! I think this school is in Cambodia rather than Thailand. though….

  2. Matt, you’re correct. It has been changed. Thanks for calling it to our attention.
