Sing to the LORD! Give Praises to the LORD! He rescues the life of the needy from the hands of the wicked.” Jeremiah 20:13
-Praise God He delivered into Agape Restoration Center (ARC) not one but TWO girls who lived in Svay Pak (SP) out of confinement in a brothel in a nearby province. Our staff has been working and praying in particular for these two and He rescued the needy from the hands of the wicked. Glory! It’s a great day here, everyone seems to be walking on clouds.
–Our ARC teaching staff has been doing great work within their program. To encourage better behavior they have come up with a system to reward the most improved to a fun day out to play. Many new play places have been built all over town offering all different kinds of fun games, rides, activities, so no one will be bored of this soon. We also have 3 special needs children they are investigating new ways to help them. As a whole there is not much in country for these challenges and they are being very proactive to help. The house moms, teachers and counselors have done great work to get the 3 to where they are, they are looking to take it to the next level. So proud of them and grateful for them.
