Children at Risk: Tending Clouds Movie

Sunday, May 16, 2021
5:00 pm-7:00 pm
In the Sanctuary


Join us  for a private showing of Tending Clouds. This movie is produced by AIM (Agape International Missions) and is a true story of a Cambodian girl named Reaksmey who was sold by her mother to an American pedophile when she was 8 years old. Rescued a year later, Reaksmey comes to AIM’s Restoration Home for several years where her life is changed forever, before flying across the world to testify against her abuser in a historic trial resulting in a 210-year prison term. She then dedicates herself to receiving an American education and starting her own business. Now 23 years old, Reaksmey has moved back to her homeland of Cambodia with her new husband, relentless in her pursuit to never let others experience what she did. As if this wasn’t enough, she continued to navigate through the hellish storms of her childhood which resurfaced because of the relationship with her mother and the retrial of her abuser in the midst of a global pandemic.  This movie will not only touch your heart, it will help open your eyes to the reality of human trafficking.
