“From Seed Project to a Real Seed”
Svay Att is a 199-family strong village in Pursat province of Cambodia. Most of its residents are poor farmers, some of whom migrated to Thailand in search of work, leaving their young ones and the elderly. Through the evangelistic efforts of Im Seila, the pastor of the local Methodist church, the number of new believers increased. Soon, many of them faced persecution; the church also had increasing restrictions placed on it.
