Lord, use me to build your church.
When I prayed that prayer, I never imagined what God would do.
"The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed which is the smallest seed, but when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants." -Jesus
Cambodia In 2006, a seed was planted in Heap ...
One day, Campus Crusade staff
came to show the Jesus film in my village.
The film showed me that Jesus died to save people's lives and not other god can.
So I decided to accept Jesus at that time in 2006.
Before I became a believer, there where many problems in my family, fighting and cursing
each other every day.
but I was changed by watching the film.
I often thought that only Jesus can heal my family's problems.
I became a believer in Christ and began to share the gospel to my husband.

Before I knew Jesus, I was a bad person.
I came home and beat my wife everyday.
My family was broken.
I was filled with guilt for mistreating my wife.
Then the first time we heard the gospel throught the Jesus film brought by Campus Crusade for
Christ in 2006.
The film showed us how God can save us from this miserable life.
But I once thought what kind of saving power is that brought by these big white people?
My wife was changed first.
I saw the change in her life.
Throught her countless prayers God also changed me and I became a believer in 2007.
My life gradually changed and Campus Crusade staff continued to teach us more and more
about the gospel every week.
After I became a Christian, we started a house church at our own house.
Realizing that Jesus is God the Saviour, I started to share the gospel to my whole family
and my neighbours.
Later, I shared the gospel to a school principal Mr. Darawuth.
Through discipleship with Daravuth, he became a believer and immediately he started building
his own house church and has continued to expand the work.
I also continue to share the gospel to other villages.

I was sick. I heard of the medical clinic and I came to get the medicine in Kovn Thmat village.
I was first brought to Christ by Phean there.
Before I came to Christ, my life was a mess.
I did a lot of drinking, committing adultery many times.
My wife experienced a lot of grief because of me as I was an alcoholic and womanizing.
I also lost trust among my fellow workers.
Then Phean came and brought me to his house church.
My heart was changed.
Then I began to start my own house church in Than Kandal village.
this life change inspired me to live for Him.
So I went to borrow the Jesus Film equipment from Phean's house church.
I stared one house church after another.
Then the number of house church memebers began to grow bigger and bigger using the Jesus Film showing.
Within three years, I was involved a lot in the ministry and as a result, my house church
began to grow up to 16 other house churches.
I drew this chart to show the house church multipliacation movement.
I have a vision to see God's kingdom expanded throughout my province where there will be
a house church in every village.

Before I accepted Christ, Iwas always afraid of evil spirits.
Then I met Daravuth.
He told me that once you believe in Jesus, He will protect you from all kinds of evil spirits.
And Daravuth shared with me how to pray to cast out evil spirits.
After that, I just personally tried to pray and read the Bible.
but I did not really put my trust on Jesus.
I was secretly reading the Bible and prayed.
After that, God helped me to overcome all those fears and had no more nightmares and
I could sleep peacefully.
Then I started to realize that Jesus can help people and cast out all kinds of evil spirits.
Later I became a leader of my house church and always talked to my fellow members that
there is only one God and Jesus is the only one who can protect my family.
Now my house church is growing and I have a vision to expand 5 to 10 more house churches
in the area.
I want to thank God that the gospel came to my village.
My husband used to hate Christians and even trhow the Bible away that I showed him.
Through my honest prayers, God changed him and now he is a believer.
Not only him but many others villagers became believers also.
