Story submitted by a LIFE International ministry partner in Poipet, Cambodia. His name must remain confidential for security reasons.
"In the last couple of months there have been huge ministries open up for us, but none have been more special than the addition of a new family member. Odom was a little boy who was trafficked to Malaysia from Cambodia as an infant. We intended to raise him in our Poipet center (orphanage), but once we met him we realized that this little boy who spent nearly 3 years in prison in a foreign country needed special love. The love only a Mommy and Daddy could give. Odom, was repatriated to Cambodia and he came to us with no name, no documents, and no birthday. It has been a joy to see him explode with life after being very introverted and shy when he first came. Odom means “Magnificent” and we gave him that name because we believe God has a “magnificent” plan for his life!"
We praise God for life-giving leaders around the world who are having an eternal impact for life!
