The orphan boy with a talent

When you meet 26-year-old Chan Chao for the first time, you would never guess the amazing talent God has blessed him with.

Though he is a quiet and reserved young man, Chan Chao is gifted in drawing.

He discovered this passion for pencils and paper while at an orphanage in Phnom Penh. He lost his two parents at an early age.

He draws beautiful black and white Cambodian faces and has also illustrated several Christian books for children.

Chan Chao who lives by himself in a one room flat is a member of Khmer Inheritance Artist Association, the ministry led by my friends Sophun and Reaksmey.

I will be selling some of Chan Chao’s drawings on my overseas trip this year.
