Born in Cambodia under the rule of the brutal Khmer Rouge, Pheap fled the country as a young girl with her family. Separated from her father and older siblings as they fled, Pheap, her mother, and her younger brother ended up in a United Nations refugee camp in Thailand. They lived there for five years before being sponsored to come to the United States by First Christian Church in La Grande, Oregon.
As she grew older, Pheap attended Eastern Oregon University. It was there she became a christian and also earned a psychology degree. After college she took a job as a state social worker in Benton County.
She’s been part of the Calvary Corvallis family for many years. In 2014, she began to feel called to return home to Cambodia and share the love of Christ with her people. She moved to Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh in 2015.
Pheap currently serves with New Life Fellowship bringing the Kingdom of God to Cambodia.
