Speak Up for Cambodia

Cambodian Children Sweeping

Did you know that in Cambodia, 74% of deaths come from water borne diseases? 74 percent!

Tomorrow night, our reverend father's (ok, Steve, teaching elder)  son Jer and his beautiful wife Shannon will be hosting an event called "Speak Up for Cambodia". Several local San Diegan Christian singers and poets (Ivan & Marissa Uhler, Rin Yame, Sno-man, Sorrow Underfoot, & Tacky Little Hat Shop) will be performing to raise money for "Water of Life". "Water of Life" is a Christian organization founded in the 1970's by Brother Andrew and Chuck Smith, originally to secretly bring 1 million Bibles into Communist China. Now they work in Southeast Asia with over 300 orphans and impoverished children, as well as bringing water purification to rural villages in Cambodia.

Time: Friday the 14th, 6:30-9 pm

Place:North Coast Backyard
         550 Industrial Way, Suite C
         Fallbrook, CA

Cost: 5$ at the door - all ticket proceeds will go directly to "Water for Life".

If you are unable to attend but would like to be involved in bringing clean water and the gospel to Cambodian children, you can donate through "Speak Up"  
or directly to "Water of Life"


  1. My church is actively engaged in a 10 year strategic partnership in Cambodia so I wish you well in raising funds. As for me, my heart for missions is in Kenya. They so need water there also. I'd ask you to pray that the labourers will be there to help in Missions of Hope. If you want to read more you can read here (this is a non incorporated group of grassroots villagers and they get no corporate assistance). God bless :-)

  2. My heart is in Kenya right along with you! Some very dear friends of ours (some generous person paid me to help the mom with her two collicky twins) are training at Dallas Theological Seminary to go make there and minister full time to their own people. Jonahs missions may be a good resource to give them for serving in their own people!
