I met Sara a few years ago at our Women's Bible Study group. When we broke into small groups, I got to know Sara as she shared parts of her life story. I saw how her faith had given her the strength to persevere through horrendous suffering in Cambodia as a young college student. When Sara's book was published, I attended her book signing event. There she shared, in more depth, the challenges and difficulties she endured. She talked about how the love of her family and her faith in God helped her to cope. Shortly afterward, I read Sara's book about how she survived the Killing Fields, and later asked her to share her story with our Bible Study group. They were all impacted by Sara's trials, but more importantly, inspired by the strength and resilience she exhibited through the Lord's intervention in her pain. Finally, I recently attended a workshop Sara coordinated, called "Smart, Healthy Living." This day-long event was filled with practical information on many areas of health. Once again, I heard Sara speak and share her testimony. This was now the fifth exposure to Sara's life story I had. I realized each time I was more and more affected... not just by words of her suffering and survival, but more by seeing who Sara has become in spite of, or perhaps because of, all she has endured. This last experience brought me to tears when I hugged Sara, because of whom she had become, through God's grace and her own desire to live a positive life of love. Sara exemplifies the work of God in her life.
