Introducing Sareth Duong

One of the highlights from my trip to Cambodia was to meet and become friends with Sareth Duong. He is the national leader for Cadence International in Cambodia. But he is much more than that. He is now an assistant to one of the high ranking Senators in Cambodia. As well, he is to oversee all protestant ministries in the nation. His story is really amazing.

While we were there, I was able to take some video of him telling his story. Remember, that he is not a native speaking English person, so a few of the things he shares are difficult to understand. In this first video, he shares about what it was like growing up in a nation that had been taken captive by the Khmer Rouge. He shares about his family and how God spared his life during this terrible genocide.

In this second video, Sareth shares about his education. He started school when he was eleven years old. But he then goes on to share how he came to know that Jesus is the true God. This does not seem important to us because we have often been told that. But for someone from Cambodia, a very pluralistic society, in the 1980s, this was a startling revelation.

I will share the other videos at the beginning of next week. You will certainly want to hear what this man is doing in this country today and how doors for the gospel have been opened that can only come from God.
