Cambodia is located in Southeast Asia and borders Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. Although the ruling government now operates as a constitutional monarchy with a parliament and prime minister, Cambodia is most famous for the communist regime of the Khmer Regime, which slaughtered millions of Cambodian in the 1970s. Up to 3 million Cambodians were murdered by the Khmer Rouge and their corrupt leader, Pol Pot, many in the "Killing Fields." Thousands escaped from death to come to the United States for the freedom they could not find in their own country.
Currently, Cambodia has a population of more than 14 million, most of them in lower income brackets, although per capital income is rising. Rice is a staple, along with fish. Cambodia has a dry season and a rainy season, with tropical monsoons typical during the rainy season.
Southwest Radio Ministries has partnered with Dr. Heng Lim, a refugee from the Killing Fields of Cambodia, now an American citizen and a prominent dentist in Oklahoma.
According to his autobiography, My Journey to Paradise, Dr. Lim survived the brutal Khmer Rouge regime and came to the United States. Although he arrived with only a second-grade education, Dr. Lim took advantage of this country's educational opportunities and has become a very successful dentist. Once a Buddhist without hope, Dr. Lim also eventually became a Christian and through Jesus Christ, was able to forgive those who killed and tortured his friends and family.
Now Dr. Lim has a great burden for the Cambodian people, returning to the country of his birth on mission trips, winning thousands of souls to Christ. You can learn more about Dr. Lim's ministry to the Cambodia people by watching the Mission Khmer DVD. The Mission Khmer DVD is complimentary with a gift of any amount for Cambodia missions.
More information can also be obtained in Dr. Lim's and (available through Southwest Radio Ministries) Return to the Killing Fields.
