Encourage your church this harvest with the story of one Cambodian church which is planting hope and growing futures. ‘When we don’t have anything to eat,’ explains local community member Tol, ‘the Christians help us with rice from the rice bank.’
Our ’One family’ harvest resource highlights how Tearfund’s partner WDO has mobilised Tol’s community enabling them to feed themselves, establish small businesses and develop their community. Most amazingly of all, 20 families have now come to faith.
'In November I'm planning to visit partners like WDO in Cambodia to see their extraordinary work ' says Bishop Harold Miller, one of Tearfund's new Vice Presidents. 'This harvest, I'd invite you to share this terrific story with your church and plant hope locally and globally'.

Ian Mulholland and his team, William Mc Master, Ross Johnston and Robb Bowles entered the Chain Reaction Cycles Mountain Bike Marathon in Selkirk Scotland in support of Tearfund’s One Family campaign.
Selkirk is in the Scottish borders and is a beautiful area the boys enjoy a three day mountain bike each year. P&O Ferries sponsored the fantastic four’s journey cross as they travelled from Larne to Scotland on the weekend of 31st July.
The team was blessed with excellent weather on the day, with stunning views and nice dry trails. Which all added to the team’s experience as they managed to cross the finish line.
AES gift matched the money the four raised through sponsorship in Kilroot Power Station were Ian Mulholland works, along with another £1000 from their social responsibility budget.
Making a grand total raised of £12,000 which will go towards the One Family appeal.
