**I received an update from Bob Craft who is closely linked to Vibol and Soknim.  Here is what he had to say:

“Soknim, while deeply scarred and missing her right ear, has not recently
been suffering from skin infections but has been improving.
This court decision is a real set-back for this family
which has also been trying to deal with huge medical costs related to her care
as well as the trauma of such injuries. Pray for these dear friends.”

Today we found out that Soknim’s attackers have been acquitted of their crimes.  My heart goes out to that entire family as they have tried to bring this case to justice.  We love you Soknim and continue to pray for you and your family!
