Somaly Mam was nine when she sold into a brothel in Phnom Penh. Her life became a nightmare, but eventually she got out. So many girls never do. Something must be done to help them.
 
The sex trade in SE Asia is horrific and in Cambodia it is particularly awful. Moms and dads pimp out their little girls for retirement money. The more you delve into it, the sicker you see it is. 
 
People who follow Jesus and have been set free by him have the opportunity to set these little girls free. For the last year, we’ve been building AIM’s sex trade ministry in Cambodia. This September we’ll be launching six new staff members there and Karen and I would like to invite a few of you to help us to do so.
We’ll begin by meeting in the town of Siem Riep, home to one of the wonders of the ancient world – Angkor Wat. And we’ll conclude our trip in Phnom Penh, learning about the ministry and the cultural issues that have made it possible. We’ll explore how we can make a difference in the fight against it.
 
Karen and I are going to take a small group with us on a vision trip. If you’re interested, please contact me and I’ll let you know more about it.
 
Dates: Sept. 2-10
Criteria: Be able to do something to help the team long-term. We’re looking for partners who can be advocates, donors, encouragers, and prayer warriors.

  • Seth,

    It’s great to see that you are going on a vision trip to Cambodia! I recently resigned as pastor of a local church in St. Petersburg, FL. I’ll be traveling to and from SE Asia on a regular basis. I met some former World Racers and AIM shorttermers while in Phnom Penh recently when I brought Jim Larson there to meet and network with others doing ministry with sex trade workers. Let me know if there is any way I can help out or possibly even go with or join your team in Cambodia. My wife was just laid off from her job here, so we were considering a trip where she would go with me to SE Asia at about the same time your vision trip is planned.

    I look forward to connecting with you soon.

    Blessings,

    Kevin Kane

  • Kevin, I remember meeting you and Jim at Water of Life! Elise and I, the two that you met that night are on the ground working with this issue (with 2 more girls) – we are excited to get 6 more girls this fall to join us!

  • Chad – thanks for the father’s day wishes.

    Joy – I’ll email you re costs. It will depend on what kind of hotel we stay in.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
