After graduating high school she worked in a garment factory in Phnom Penh for a number of years before being called to go to a Discipleship Training School through Youth With A Mission (YWAM).  After learning and working with them she met Greg and became involved with ministry to the street children of Battambang and helped to establish Crossing Cambodia.

She now serves as our Ministry Director, running the day to day operations of Crossing Cambodia and helping to develop the vision and future ministry opportunities.

Hoeurp is often quiet, but she is calm, dedicated, and confident of her abilities.

Prior to coming to work with us she earned a 4 year degree in accounting and worked as a cook at a local restaurant.  However, she greatly desired an opportunity to share God’s love and serve him daily in her work and she came to us to interview to be the main teacher in our preschool program.

Now she serves as our Preschool Advocate, looking after the needs of the smallest children in our program as well as helping to cook and prepare meals for the other children.
