After their 20-year old Land Cruiser broke down twice on a home visit to a student’s house in mid-Feb 2016, the Sisters knew that they needed a new vehicle to continue their work. Many of the poorer students come from villages all over Cambodia, some as far as Mondulkiri, about 400km away from Phnom Penh.
The first step was to pray. In particular, the community asked St Joseph for his intercession. After all, he has protected and provided for many Salesian houses through his prayers over the years.
Word was then put out. In no time, many generous hearts responded to the call – be it through prayer, spreading the word, donations or their support. The full amount needed was raised in less than 2 weeks.
It is thus fitting that on the Feast of St Joseph on 19 March, the new Toyota Revo was blessed. May this vehicle and all the work it does bring glory to God!
