Matthew speaking in HK
Matthew speaking about AIM to a group of young professionals in Hong Kong
We bring products made by AIM employees when we share about our ministry. When people purchase ethically, they are supporting women who want a safe and fair paying job.

All Staff Conference 2018
The AIM All Staff Conference is split over 2 days so that 1/2 of the employees can run operations while the other 1/2 attends the all day conference. We have an incredible team we serve with, and this is a great time to bond with people!
AIM Thanksgiving 2017
Our first Thanksgiving with AIM started when we came for a visit to find our future apartment and met up with our future serving team! SO thankful for incredible relationships that continue to form with our 35 volunteer expats in Phnom Penh!

AIM Family Gathering 2018
The annual AIM Family Gathering takes place in the greater Sacramento area every year. We were thankful to get to share about our Cambodian connections and work with AIM.
We don't get to do much music anymore, but when we do we are so thankful! We were honored to lead worship for the AIM Family Gathering in 2018.
AIM School Thanksgiving Ceremony
In October of 2018 we had a worship service celebrating how far the AIM school has come and how close we are to finishing the new construction! Over 75 guests flew in from America to see programs, take tours, and be a part of AIM ministry for a week!
Svay Pak is home to many of the ministries that AIM has in Cambodia. From the AIM school to two employment centers, an emergency foster care location, The Lord's Gym, and the Kid's Club—this community is in the process of transformation and renewal from it's past.
Emergency Foster Care
Does your organization need custom t-shirts? AIM employment centers can sew and silkscreen for you!
Do you have a business that would want to sell products that AIM makes? We can connect you!
The Lord's Gym
Matthew first worked out in The Lord's Gym in Svay Pak in 2011. It is a powerful ministry reaching out to those in the community that need love.
Saying goodbye (and see you later!) to five years of memories at Bloom!

In 2011 and 2012, Melissa was able to give basic piano skills to kids in the community of Svay Pak. They have since taught their own students and are now involved in worship bands and community music!
