The Elegy of Urban Forced Eviction in Cambodia

15 years ago, due to an urban demolition projects, residents were forcedly evicted from the city center to the suburbs. After the forced eviction, residents living in Trapeang AnhChanh (Cambodia) have to work tirelessly all day to make a living. Children used to be left alone after school.

Lillian R. Dickson's Quotes

 let’s go where there is the greater need.

“ let's go where there is the greater need...”

“What do you think?” Jim wrote to his bride-to-be. “They want us to go to Formosa, which is a Canadian and English Presbyterian field. They say they have a greater need than the American Presbyterians.”
“Fine, if true,” Lil wrote back. “So many people say that just to get you. But if it’s true, let’s go where there is the greater need. We have only one life to live.” So, it was Formosa.
On May 16, 1927, they were married at Princeton, New Jersey. In a decrepit car-his classmates said they would never make it-they went up through New England, across into Canada, came back down to the States and headed west. At Vancouver, they sold the car and all their possessions to an obliging customs officer and were on their way.

Photo: When James Ira Dickson asked his fiancée in 1927 whether they would go to Taiwan for missions, Lillian R. Dickson replied "Let’s go where there is the greater need. We have only one life to live.". The two married in the same year, came to Taiwan and devoted their lives.

 

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, You will love your neighbor as yourself.

Mark 12:30-31
