40 years ago today, Pol Pot lead the Khmer Rouge regime of the Communist Party of Kampuchea through Cambodia, ultimately killing 25% of the population.  It was one of the largest genocides of modern times.  Anyone with an education was tortured and killed because they posed a threat to him.  Here is an article about the anniversary and some history.

Cambodia is still working to recover from the Khmer Rouge.  MANNA is working to help them.  Last month I stood where they stood. I took the cover photo above at Tuol Sleng, a former high school that Pol Pot turned into an interrogation and execution center.  I saw the horror of the past, and the beauty of the future. Today we have a feeding center at a former dump site in Phnom Penh.  God does redeem, I’ve seen it with my own eyes.  Come with us to Cambodia sometime and see it with your own eyes.
