CoVid in Cambodia
Posted by Kandi on April 18th, 2021 | 6 comments
For nearly a year, Cambodia hardly had any CoVid cases, but now the country is in the midst of a surge of cases. As would be expected, most are in more heavily populated areas – the cities and surrounding areas. Travel between provinces has been restricted and Phnom Penh is in a lockdown. People are only allowed out of their homes for necessities and medical care. It’s something like what many of us experienced last year, although with harsher punishments for those who do not follow instructions. As you can imagine there is a lot of stress and fear particularly in the city, in Phnom Penh. Please pray for our International Workers and others who are on lockdown. And pray that the number of Covid cases decrease.
Despite the lockdown, the Antioch school has continued to function. Part of the reason is that there are few students and they live together with the teachers as one big family. The ban on travel kept the students from returning home for their spring break, so after a few days off, it was decided to start the next trimester. So they are now in full swing with classes – although are unable to leave the property for ministry groups. Pray for the students to continue to learn and grow in this unusual time.
