Greetings from Southeast Asia,
I wanted to share with LifeNets recent activities that have been accomplished through your assistance and my own hands.
I was able to start a chicken farm in the vicinity of Siem Reap, I was uncertain if it would be successful or not and so I didn’t want to share about this endeavor until I received news concerning it. For $100, I was able to help one person become self-sufficient in the countryside. They were able to build chicken housing. The $100 bought 15 chickens, One hen and One rooster. Since then they have been able to purchase one chicken hatchery, along with a basic oppo smart phone. I have been able to see the great pictures of the chickens. They’d like to be able to have another Chicken Hatchery which I have been told is $160. I don’t have any spare funds to continue helping with this endeavour. But I am very happy to know how far my $100 went into providing self-sufficiency.
LifeNets provided a well deserving student with much needed tuition money in Vietnam in the city of Saigon currently known as Ho Chi Minh City. I met this intelligent student since I had been studying here. His English name is Vincent. The semester will coming to a close soon and he’ll need more assistance, I am really hopeful that he has continued to do well in his studies. He can speak English, Chinese and Vietnamese.
I would very much like to visit Kampong Cham again to check on the well, however last time after seeing the well’s completion I became very ill with dysentery. No one has contacted me concerning the well, so I believe that the well is still in excellent condition.
I do very much have a heart for the people of Asia and I hope to continue to do good works with the help of LifeNets. I am very thankful to the good people who support LifeNets in making a well possible in Cambodia and tuition available in Vietnam.
We are here to make a difference, the love of God our frame of reference.
