Remember the Poor (RTP) is a ministry that seeks to break the cycle of poverty by bringing together evangelism and discipleship and compassionate service among the poor of Cambodia to the glory of God.
Banquet Update: Thank you to everyone who attended our 2017 Banquet in April. More than 300 people came and, with extraordinary generosity, gave more than $40,000 for Mother’s Home renovations and start-up day-care costs and also to help meet the needs for the at-risk children in our care at the girls dormitory. We cannot praise God enough!
Current Project: A “Mother’s Home”
We have now raised enough funds to purchase and prepare our “Mother’s Home,” a building that soon will provide shelter and community to single mothers with children working in the factories or “sweat shops” of Phnom Penh Cambodia. God has provided the more than $80,000 dollars we needed to buy the building. Did we just write that? Yes, God did it! We will keep you updated as this ministry progresses.
Here is a short video tour of our ministry
Remember the Poor (RTP) is a ministry started by Greg and Jane Drebes that seeks to do the hard work of bringing together evangelism and discipleship with compassionate service among the needy of Cambodia for the glory of God.
They agreed that we should go to the Gentiles, and they to the circumcised. All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along. –Galatians 2:9b-10
We are dedicated to preach the gospel and those who believe are taught to turn around and continue preaching the gospel. In a developing country like Cambodia, we are also very concerned about the poor. Sex-trafficking is a result of poverty and our ministry also works to prevent those from being sold or entering the trade. We, too, like Paul states in Galatians are eager to Remember the Poor.
We believe God has shown us the path marked out for us: to be instruments in his hand for caring for the needs of the poor. Our greatest concern is to reach their hearts with the gospel and disciple them into self-sustaining, life-overflowing Jesus followers who take on God’s mission to Cambodia as their own. And we also believe to do that among the poor, we cannot neglect to meet what physical needs we can as God enables us. We see this as an important part of the DNA of church planting. We desire to see the nationals model giving as they also go and plant new churches.
We see God bearing beautiful fruit as we seek to both share the gospel and remember the poor by doing what we can to meet their needs.
