From the Archive: Page 103: Dareth Ly: Survivor of Khmer Rouge Becomes Missionary to Cambodia
In 1975 when the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia, Dareth Ly was 7 years old. He spent most of the next 4 years in a work camp, barely surviving starvation and torture. When he landed in the U.S. as an orphan, he forced himself to forget everything about Cambodia. He knew he would never go back. But God can take what others meant for evil and turn it for good. (Caution for parents: this story contains episodes of violence and is not appropriate for children.)

For much of her life she carried shame because she just couldn’t fix it.
