Hello family and friends!
As you may know I am currently living in Phnom Penh, Cambodia as I work for Destiny Rescue. At Destiny Rescue we rescue, rehabilitate, and reintegrate underage girls who have been sexually trafficked or exploited. To date, we have rescued over 4,000 girls across all of our project nations!
While at our Cambodia projects, our girls will be provided educational, vocational, and counseling support. They will take English and Khmer classes and attend a catch-up school if needed. We have a training salon on site where they can learn the skills needed to work in a local salon if they choose. For those who have other aspirations, they are able to train in a variety of vocations through our partner NGOs. Our girls also go through a counseling program that focuses on fostering resilience so that when they leave us they are empowered to take on life's challenges.
I am serving in our Phnom Penh project as the Community Partnership Specialist. In this role I work closely with the rescue team, providing administrative support and finding additional rescues through referrals. These referrals come through two channels: partner NGOs and through our current clients. My favorite part of my job is meeting with the friends of our clients who are still working in the sex industry. After spending some time with them and building trust, we are able to present them an offer to quit work and come study at our project.
This work cannot be done without the support of all of you! These monthly donations cover the entirety of my living expenses here in Cambodia. I feel honored to be doing the work that I love and I am truly grateful for the friends and family who continue to pour into this mission.
Until all His kids are free,
