Students dancing in the Dedication Ceremony
This year’s March 8th Women’s Day has a double meaning to me. First, six years ago on this day, I set foot in Phnom Penh as the missionary of "Fullness in Christ Fellowship," establishing the “Pleroma Home for Girls” in 2011 and gaining the opportunity to serve some girls who were wounded. Second, this year of the same day was the Dedication Ceremony for the “Pleroma School for Girls.” I have greatly experienced how Jesus Christ loves these girls dearly.
Looking back on the past six years of missionary life flooded me with mixed feelings. From the United States to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, there was a great deal of cultural shock. Every cultural shock made me discover more of my own limitations and the Lord Jesus’s great patience with us.

Especially when I was serving with local co-workers, God taught me how to walk with those around me, just as Jesus came from Heaven to Earth and the Word became Flesh to dwell among us, full of grace and full of truth. This is really not easy. Every experience gives me a better understanding of the Lord’s patience with and unconditional love for me. It also makes me understand that our ministry is a "Holistic Ministry" -- we cannot just deal with healing girls from misery, or just with improving their academic status. Their physical and spiritual wellbeing, as well as family education, is also as important and indispensable. As students, their living environment, family background, physical condition, etc., all will affect their ability to learn. May God grant us wisdom and compassion for the ministry.
I’m very grateful that I have been able to participate and witness God’s work here for the past six years. At March 8th, the school dedication ceremony, there were over 150 participants. Some were the parents of the students, some were VIPs from the United States and Hong Kong, and some were coworkers and missionaries from Phnom Penh. God also led a parent to express her sincere gratitude for the school helping her daughter and providing her daughter this educational opportunity, as well as for the love among the teachers and the whole team’s coordination. We would like to invite you to give thanks to our Lord with us.
