In Phnom Penh, Cambodia, we saw a different need for the younger generation, of the Vietnamese local children who lack the means to nutrition and education, VOI have established a refuge center called Lighthouse Children's Refuge to house these children during the day as many of them have been exploited because of their family situations. With that, VOI wants to love on them and change their minds in a positive way and want them to know that God is their father and we are their mother and we both love them and care for them very much. Therefore, instead of calling it an orphanage, we call it a Refuge center, as many of them might still have families, who cannot provide for them or teach them better. With the same vision, we REACH out to these children and feed them daily, TEACH and educate them with life skills including learn how to read and write in different lanquages as well as how to use computers, sewing machine, dance, sing, etc... We also teach them the Bible until they're mature in their age and walk with the Lord, then we RELEASE them back into their community to shine their light as a new Creation. We have partners and volunteers from VOI as well as from different churches in many countries to teach these children the Word of God as well as provide for their physical needs. However, we welcome new partners who will stand with us in this mission.
Our goal at VOI is to build a school and training facility in Cambodia so that we have a place to train leaders and church planters in Southeast Asia. This facility would also be used to provide education for children in our growing orphanages as well as the local community.
VOI has many outreaches each year in different parts of the world, as Dr. Paul & Ruth Ai travel throughout South-East Asia and Europe. Prime time for outreaches are during:
SUMMER - from late spring throughout summer
(May - September), sometimes in the Fall
WINTER - for Christmas, New Year, and Chinese New Year
(November - January/February)
Please review our 'GALLERY' page to see our past and current outreaches and events' pictures for more information.
