Rapha House-Cambodia Mission Trip

I'm writing to give you the opportunity to help me bring love and healing to some very special children. On February 11, 2018 I will be leaving for 2 weeks in Cambodia with a team from Twin Oaks Christian Church.

Our primary mission will be to spend time serving and loving over 100 young girls who have been the victims of sex trafficking. Through the grace of God they have been rescued and are now living in safe houses run by Rapha House, a ministry headquartered in Joplin, MO. Their 2 locations in in Cambodia bring hope and a future to girls ranging in age from 6-18 who have been through unspeakable horrors. The Rapha House staff has impressed on us what an important part of the healing process these visits by the American teams are.

We will also be serving the children of the Kids Club in Phnom Penh and Battambang, which is part of Rapha Houses prevention programs. Hundreds of children gather in the backyards of local homes 2 days a week for games, bible lessons, singing, and really just a place to be loved and cared for. These children, who live in dire poverty, are at risk of being trafficked themselves and some, in fact, have been trafficked in their own neighborhoods. A child sponsorship program is now sending many of these children to school so they can escape the cycle of poverty that often leads to trafficking.

In preparation for my participation on this team I am seeking financial and prayer support. I need to raise $2,500 to cover my expenses for this trip. I'm asking you to consider a gift of $25, $50, $100, or more to help me represent you to these precious children. I would be taking your hearts with me as I love these children and teach them the good news that Jesus loves them and that he can heal the scars on their hearts and give them hope and a future.

I appreciate your prayerful consideration of support. If you cannot support me financially I would really appreciate the support of your prayers as I travel to the other side of the world to spread the message of Christ.

Sincerely,
Christine Vann
