The Prey Kon Long Church Orphan Home is located in the Pursat Province.The home is set in a remote village surrounded by wooden and grass dwellings, travel to the home becomes difficult during the rainy season, in dry the season it takes two and a half hours to get there from the provincial capital. One must travel by ox cart or motorbike to reach the home, as there are no roads large enough for a full-size vehicle.
The population of Prey Kon Long is approximately 2,300 people and the majority of workers in the area are rice farmers. They grow rice as well as fruits and vegetables. The villagers that are not rice farmers try their hand at running small shops at home. Flooding in the wet season, and periods of draught during the dry season take their toll on the rice crops each year. Life throughout the countryside is often difficult, and the presence of AIDs, which is the leading cause for death in this area, brings even more challenge.
The Prey Kon Long home was dedicated in 2007. Every morning, the children from the home begin their day with a morning devotional. After this time of bible study, worship, and prayer, they eat breakfast. Some go to school in the morning, and others attend school after lunch. When the children are not in school, they help with house chores, get rest, or play. The children enjoy playing soccer, Cambodian games, and learning traditional dances.
Every evening after dinner, the children study English in a class held at the home. Following their English lesson, the kids participate in the evening devotional. To wrap up their day, the kids review their school lessons and then head to bed.
