Then the ones who pleased the Lord will ask, "When did we give you something to eat or drink? When did we welcome you as a stranger or give you clothes to wear or visit you while you were sick or in jail?"
The King will answer, "Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me." .......Matthew 25

Eight year old Sreynich is lucky to be alive.

She was the victim of a hit and run accident that we had witnessed on the PhnomPenh -Siem Reap highway whicle on the way back from the villages to Baray. We had just turned off at Kampong Thmor when a black SUV in front of us hit little Sreynich. It wasn't really the driver's fault because she had suddenly run across the road and onto the path of the SUV. The poor driver, afraid of being beaten up by the villagers, paused for a while then quickly sped off. Even our driver quickly stepped on his pedal, afraid that he would be mistakened for the guilty vehicle. After he had calmed down, we were able to persuade him to return to the scene, where we eventually helped the little girl get to the district hospital, and then put her on a taxi to Siem Reap.

We were afraid for her life. Eeven though there were no obvious broken bones, she was drifting in and out of coma.

After we left Camobodia, the pastors continued to follow up with her family. We were delighted to receive the news that she survived. Thank God.

On this last trip, we made a stop at her home by the Pol Pot dam, just to say hello and leave her a small gift.
