Cynthia Jean Albrecht attended the January YWAM School of Evangelism in 1980 in Lausanne, Switzerland. After the lecture phase she traveled with the school to Greece and then on to Thailand to work in the refugee camps. She worked in a clothing distribution project to begin with and then ran the Soap Factory in Khao-I-Dang Camp located along the Thai/Cambodia border. She also spent several months in the south of Thailand in Songkla working in a camp for Vietnamese Boat People teaching English. Cindy returned to the USA with the desire to finish her education. She was very determined to earn her degree so that she could return to Thailand with some tools and work with us. It took her longer than most as she would work – saving her money and then study a term or two and continued this even when cancer was diagnosed. She continued between treatments, employment and working on her degree in Public Health…until 15 June 2000…the Lord called her to Himself. Cindy, thank you for your example of perseverance – when the going was really tough – we know that the angels in heaven rejoiced at your arrival.

Many vietnamese refugees in Songkhla are always remember you Cindy. RIP
Many times I wondered what have happened to all that were in our SOE in Lausanne in 1980. Through this page it is with a bit of sadness that I learn that Cindy had gone before us. Yes, I was also to go to Khao-I-Dang Camp but was the only one not to. During our SOE and first month of outreach in Greece Cindy made a deep impression with her sincerity and joy! Her single-mindedness was then already evident!
