CCC has enjoyed a long friendship with Barnabas Mam. Barnabas was one of the handful of Cambodian Christians to survive the killing fields. He went on to lead an underground church during the post-Khmer Rouge communist regime, had to flee to Thailand for his life and then returned to Cambodia to plant hundreds of churches. He is now the Asia Regional Director of Ambassadors for Christ International.
Barnabas has recently published his first book, Church Behind the Wire. This is how the publisher describes the book:
From the oppression and terror of the killing fields in Cambodia, this is the story of how one man’s conversion led to a rebirth of faith that brought hope to a nation. Commissioned by Communists as a spy in the concentration camps, Barnabas Mam came to faith in Christ and became the foremost evangelist and church planter in a land broken by genocide. An inspiring story on a personal, church, and national level, this is more than a narrative – it’s a blueprint for success for church growth of the most powerful kind.
