He is 45 year olds. He has been in prison for 14 years.

He returned to his village but had no relatives to speak to him because they thought that the person who had been imprisoned was a bad person and brought bad luck to them.

Then he decided to leave the village to work in another village and met a woman at work place (his wife currently), and she felt pity and sorry to him and after that they loved each other and commitment to look after and caring for each other until end of life.

Then the wife decided to go to work in Phnom Penh, living with someone family, working as a house cleaner and looking after their children. She gets a salary $ 150 per month and every month she send some money for her husband and save some for buy land and build a house to live together with her husband when they are getting old in the future.

They heard about Jesus name then they decided to come and join us, immediately both of them asked me to accept Jesus because they want Jesus save their life. They finding Jesus many years ago and now Jesus come, they said.

Jesus said to them, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one come to father except through me. John 14:6.

The reason we build a house for ex-prisoner because of Love from Jesus.

We want to see ex-prisoner have hope in life again and the opportunity to live in the village without discrimination.

Building a house for him will help bring him back into the community. 

The wood was bought from someone in the village, it’s from a dismantled cow shed.
