Meet our Friend, Meng Hieang

Meng Hieang came to the Centre on the 20 April 2002. He was introduced to the Centre by another NGO. During his stay here, he was a very good boy. He came in with his older sister. His mother was a single mother then.

He is well liked by both the staff and his peers. He graduated in 2012 with excellent results. In the same year, he told the entrance exam for medical study. Unfortunately, he did not pass. He was determined to study medicine and decided to study to prepare for the next exam in the following years. The church continued to support him as he prepared for the next exam. He also studied French during that time as Medical study were taught in French in the Government University. The following year he was successful in passing the Entrance exam to study Medicine in the Health Science Institute of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces.

He graduated in December 2020 and is now doing his internship in the government hospital.

My very first gratefulness to the journey Ive been is to you, my dear Father in heaven. As Ive looked back and marvelled how far I had come, I didnt wonder how I made it. I already knew the answer. Only with your help had I powered through. For without your strength, I could do nothing. My heart just keep thanking you and thanking you. Im touch beyond words for your faithful promise to me.(Isaiah55:11)📃📓

Above all, I want to thank my dear Father in heaven for the wonderful journey I have been through. As I look back, I marvel at how far I have come. I often wonder how I made it. But I already know the answer. Only with the help of my Father in Heaven have I powered through. For without His strength, I could do nothing. My heart is overflowing with thankfulness to my God. I’m touched beyond words for His faithful promises to me.

“So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11

It was while I was still living in the Centre that I accompanied a sick child to the hospital. There I looked upon the patients, and God moved me with compassion for them. I knew that my desire was to be a doctor.

God worked in so many marvellous ways to confirm and realise His calling in my life. It has not been an easy journey these 7 years in Medical School, but the Lord has surrounded me with His love and favour. I stand today as a testimony of His goodness and faithfulness. His word has been and is still being accomplished in my life. And I give Him all praise and glory!
