Sokhom HunSokhum Hun

Sokhom Hun is a member and former elder of the Cambodian Church of Christ in Dallas. Sokhom was born in Cambodia in 1957 and spent the early years of his life there with his parents, two brothers, and six sisters. By 1970, the Khmer Rouge controlled most of Cambodia through torture, intimidation, and untold atrocities. For more than ten years, Sokhom struggled to stay alive through torture, forced labor, malnutrition, malaria, and other diseases. He witnessed the torture and execution of his father and 15 other family members as well as many of his friends. This time in Cambodia became known as the “killing fields.” In 1979, he met the young woman who was to become his wife, Phaline. They fled to a United Nations refugee camp across the border in Thailand and from there were taken to a refugee camp in the Philippines.

Sokhom, Phaline, and their baby daughter arrived at DFW in 1981 and were placed in apartments in East Dallas. They met Pat Brooks, minister of what was then the Highland Park Church of Christ. The congregation opened their arms to the Cambodians, and in June 1983, many of the Cambodians, including Sokhom & Phaline, were baptized. In the following years, Sokhom established the Cambodian Church of Christ which now meets in Balch Springs. Since 2005, he has focused his efforts on reaching the lost in his home country, making several mission trips to Cambodia, raising funds for various humanitarian needs there, conducting leadership training, and continually assisting wherever needed. He and Phaline now have a burning desire to work full time for the Lord in Cambodia. Please offer a prayer of thanks for Sokhom, Phaline, their daughters Sophadavy and Melinda, and their son Matthew.
