Navy plays a key role in helping the local church overcome poverty in Tonle Batie.

She works for Tearfund’s partner in the village and is training Pastor Ke Pich to inspire his church, showing them they can meet their own needs using their own resources. The next step will be to galvanise the whole community.

‘It’s my job to inspire, train and support churches like Tonle Batie to reach out to their communities, meeting spiritual and physical needs,’ says Navy.

She meets with Pastor Ke Pich each week and has come to know him well.

Navy is using all her skills and insight to support Ke Pich at the start of this journey as he leads his church into action.

‘The best way for the poor community is to show them that God loves them so they can help each other and love each other,’ says Navy.
