Truth in Advertising

This billboard in Phnom Penh reveals the truth about Cambodia’s karaoke clubs…Bring along your condoms because you won’t just be singing.  No, Cambodia karaoke clubs are places to buy sex with young girls, a significant number just kids.  Thousands of them held captive, some physically, emotionally enslaved, others as a result of the abject poverty from which the country suffers. 
And this business is growing and evolving.  Back by powerful network of organized crime the clubs are growing not only in number, but in size.  Some hold several hundred girls.  The answer is a holistic approach that includes not only immediate relief, education and economic development, but heart transformation through Jesus Christ.  Our Rahab’s House in Svay Pak, Cambodia has been using this approach for three years, and while we have a long ways to go significant progress has been made.  Learn more on our website:

An American Pedophile in Svay Pak, Cambodia

I live in Svay Pak, Cambodia, a place where foreign pedophiles come to purchase and sexually abuse little girls every day.  In the past we would confront these men and force them to leave our village.  While this was emotionally gratifying, it really did nothing to stop the abuse of the children.  Recently we have changed our tactic and now try to initiate conversations with these pedophiles in order to obtain information that can be used by law enforcement and NGOs to stop the abuse and torture being inflicted upon dozens of children. 

Last week we were able to record an American pedophile as he negotiated with one of our staff (who he believed was a pimp) to purchase girls between the ages of six and ten in order to sexually abuse them.  Sadly, this audio file represents what happens daily here in Svay Pak.  In addition to the audio file we have a video of this pedophile.  Both files have been given to law enforcement, but a lack of resources have limited any action being taken against this man as he continues to rape and torture little girls.

Please help us by watching the video and listening to the recording (see link below), then share it with everyone you know who will join the fight against child sex trafficking.  The video and audio quality is not as good as we would like; however, if you know this man you might be able to ID him.  Any information we receive about him will be given to law enforcement helping to make up for the resources they lack.
