At Rock Foundation Cambodia (RFC), we drill clean water wells, import containers of medical supplies, distribute food and try to meet other tangible needs of Cambodians living in poverty.
Our founder, Brett Medlin, has been a member of Ecclesia Houston for almost 20 years, and the church has played an instrumental role in the ministry’s success. Hear Brett explain how Ecclesia has supported his vision from day one:
I founded Rock Foundation in 2011, and our main goal was to go out into areas where no one else was doing ministry or serving the poor. One day I saw somebody holding a baby with a baby bottle, and I asked them, “Is that tea that the baby is drinking?” They said, “No, this is water.” I asked them where this water had come from, and we walked about half a mile to a stagnant pond.
Around 2012, Pastor Chris asked if I wanted to learn how to drill water wells. I said, “Absolutely!” I trained with Living Water and got to go to Kenya for more hands-on training. In the past 6 or 7 years—thanks to our partnership with Ecclesia—we’ve drilled 600+ water wells that have benefitted hundreds of thousands of people.
This project would not be possible without Ecclesia. A 20-year relationship developed into serving the poorest of the poor. It’s hard to put into words the impact the people of Ecclesia have had on our ministry in Cambodia.
Thank you, Ecclesia, for your partnership. Thank you for everything you have invested in us, and I hope we can continue to partner together for years to come to benefit the people of Cambodia and others around the world.
