- He served 26 years in prison for a crime committed as a youth. Upon his parole, his family rejoiced, but he was immediately picked up by ICE for deportation to Cambodia. All the while, derelicts, and terrorists can waltz over our southern border and be given a hotel room and a plethora of social services. Our system is messed up and very cruel. Nonetheless, we will try to make contact with "You" and share the Gospel with him. https://www.visaliatimesdelta.com/story/news/local/california/2022/08/18/ice-deports-california-san-quentin-prison-activist-journalist-phoeun-you-cambodia-genocide-survivor/7834669001/California prison activist, journalist Phoeun You abruptly deported to CambodiaWeeks before the California Legislature weighs a bill to end the prison-to-deportation pipeline, You was sent to Cambodia, which his family fled.www.visaliatimesdelta.com
- I am saddened by what seems unfair, especially with the current state of allowing open borders. Yet, I know God is in control. I pray he finds Jesus if he does not know him. It is important to keep the fight up too!
- In the big city of Phnom Penh, there are scant opportunities to find work, but outside, in the smaller villages, and the northern parts of the country, It is even more difficult to find a meaningful, life-sustaining job. Bruce lives in the province of Battambang, in the north. He lost his job a few months ago and cannot find work. He struggles daily to put food on the table for himself and his young daughter. Bruce has been fishing a lot and has had some success providing some protein, but fishing is always hit and miss. Wanting to provide for his family, he has been reluctant to reach out for help, but this week he realized his daughter was suffering, so he contacted our staff member, Van, and told him he needed help. We provided a couple of months' worth of staple items to sustain him and his daughter, and Bruce can keep searching for a job in the meantime rather than spending time fishing. I appreciate your support. It goes to helping men like Bruce and sharing the Gospel of grace with the men of Cambodia. Thank you!

- I received some good news regarding travel to Cambodia. The seven-day quarantine for unvaccinated travelers has been lifted. This is an answer to prayer, as it would not have made sense for me to travel there and being locked down for nearly half of my trip. Now, I must figure out when I can actually go (I'm thinking September). By then it will have been 2.5 years since I was last there! Thanks for your support and prayers as I figure out the logistics. https://www.phnompenhpost.com/national/no-quarantine-unvaccinated-rapid-tests-requiredNo quarantine for the unvaccinated; rapid tests requiredInbound travellers to Cambodia who have not received a primary course of Covid-19 vaccines will no longer be required to quarantine if a rapid test administered upon arrival comes back negative, according to Minister of Health Mam Bun Heng. The rule change is effective from the onset of July 11.www.phnompenhpost.com
