Apostolic Prefecture of Kompong Cham

The Catholic Bible Committee of  Kompong Cham had a Bibleseminar on 07-09 December 2015 at Busra Church in Mondolkiri Province with 45 participants and 4 member of the Committee.

This seminar was thought especially for the Christians of Mondolkiri that is a province populated of Phnoom, a big minority group with his own language. Some of the participants were even unalphabetized! Despite all these difficulties, the Seminar worked very well due to the eagerness of the participants to know the Sacred Scriptures.

On 28 March 2016 in Mondolkiri a thanksgiving ceremony was held for the publication of the Bible in Phnoom language.
