About Remember Nhu:
Remember Nhu was conceived in 2003-2004. Carl was attending a conference hosted by the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Cambodia when he was made aware of the horrific problem of child sex trafficking. Particularly striking was the story of Chup Ly, a 16 year-old who was sold into the sex-slave trade and died three years later of AIDS.
After telling Chup Ly’s story, the missionary speaker then told of Nhu, a 12-year-old girl who had committed her life to Jesus Christ, was baptized, grew as a Christian, and began to share publicly her faith. However, a Buddhist family member then sold her virginity, partly as an act of disapproval of Nhu’s conversion to Christ. At that time, the missionary did not know what had become of Nhu. It was in that moment that Carl felt inspired by God to “Remember Nhu,” and in December of 2003 committed to God that he would do everything in his power to eliminate the use of children in the sex trade industry around the world.
In 2004, Carl finished a master’s degree in Religion in which his final project created Remember Nhu: an organization that would prevent children from entering the sex trade by meeting the physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs of potential victims. Meanwhile, Carl took 6 trips to Cambodia to look for Nhu and try to meet her in person. Finally in July of 2006, when Nhu was 17, Carl met her for the first time. That meeting would forever change the course of Carl and Nhu’s lives. Carl & Laurie Ralston welcomed Nhu into their own family, and she was given a father and mother who would always love and support her. Not only that, but Nhu also became Remember Nhu’s first official employee.
The cost is $3,500 per person, which covers all travel, lodging, meals and ministry expense. Employees will receive a $500 mission grant.
