Sovann's Story: From Black Magic to Serving the Unreached
Black magic. Deeply rooted in Cambodia’s history, many still fall prey to its promises of power, prestige, and wealth. If one practices black magic, one devotes themselves to spirits and does whatever the spirits ask. This, according to Vath Sovann, is what led him down a path of sin and eventually, imprisonment.
Sovann became homeless
He began to work small jobs here and there at the market or on farms. But it wasn’t enough. With dirty clothes, nowhere to lay his head, and an empty stomach, he began to steal. It started with just food. But over time, Sovann began to steal more valuable items and eventually got caught up in black magic.
“I became so greedy and lustful,” Sovann shared.
At the time,
“We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for murderer” - 1 Timothy 1:9
When he was released in 2020, Sovann moved to Tbaeng Church and began to learn the Bible under Pastor Rotha.
“Today, I see how God has already started to use my story to benefit His ministry,” Sovann shared.
Sovann now partners with neverthirst to serve unreached communities in Cambodia.
