Jeonghoon is a 26-year-old student. He is a Christian and grew up going to church, but recently he has seen bad news about Christianity and the church which made him question the true meaning of faith.

Chhiet is a 30-year-old teacher at a primary school in Cambodia. His father died when he was only six years old. His mom got remarried and had two more children, but Chhiet never got along with his stepfather, so he went to live with other relatives when he was 10. He now wants to have a better relationship with his family and hopes to become closer with his stepfather.

He comes from a non-Christian background, but he is looking to find the true meaning of life. The culture that he grew up in would pray to their deceased family members, and Chhiet wondered why that was a common practice. Searching for answers, he got in contact with LHM-Cambodia during a puppet show at his school and they told him about God and how He created heaven and earth. Chhiet was very interested and opened his heart to listen to the LHM staff members. They put him in contact with a local pastor to follow up with him. LHM-Cambodia gave him booklets and he continues to go to church to grow his faith.

Saul was once an acclaimed Mariachi performer who played songs for weddings, birthdays, and entertainment at local bars and restaurants. Saul had a complicated life that included an addiction to playing slot machines and gambling. He once received a booklet from LHM-Nicaragua and since then he has been a faithful reader of LHM booklets focused on many different subjects. He shared with LHM staff that after reading through a bunch of the topical booklets and comparing his life to the content in them, he reflected on how bad his behavior had gotten. He decided to seek out the Lord and soon became a Christian after learning that Jesus is his Savior. Saul continues to use his musical gifts by singing in the local church and is still a dedicated reader of LHM's booklets.

Mahmut is a 37-year-old father of four who reached out to LHM staff through their regional Facebook page after seeing an ad. He signed up for the Bible Correspondence Course and finished all the lessons in a week. He was eager to join a local church, so an LHM staff member went to church with him and referred him to a local missionary. After starting to go to church, he reached back out to LHM staff to share that he had been confused about religion and had questions about the purpose of our existence. Mahmut didn't have answers to any of his questions and became anxious about his final destiny. That is when he came across the LHM Facebook page and was drawn to the story of Jesus because he could see reflections of his personal sorrows in Jesus' life. He was given several LHM booklets to help grow his faith and he knows they will cause positive impacts in his life. He wants to share the love of God to the people around him so everyone can have the happiness he has.

One of the LHM speakers shared a story about his personal life as an orphan. It touched Daniel so much that he decided that day to learn more about Jesus. Daniel is now a believer and LHM-Cambodia staff continues to work with him to grow his faith.
