I truly do not know where to begin or how to express my gratitude to each of you for your prayers and support during this mission experience to Cambodia. You have hung in there even when we were not able to update and have prayed us through many stressful times. God put together an amazing team of 18 Americans and 14+ Cambodians to have the privilege of serving his people in this beautiful country. We were able to love on them through prayers, meeting their medical needs, playing with the children, acts of service, and just spending time with them. We learned from them and opened our hearts to accept an agenda that was not our own! I was so proud of each one of our team members in the way that they did not go to enforce our ways of life or our ideas of the way that others should live…instead they went simply to serve in any capacity!! They worked so hard and were able to provide Vacation Bible School to over 300 children, medical care to over 850 individuals, nutrition and health teaching to a countless number of individuals, and service/evangelism acts to many as well!
Praise God for answered prayers and for the safe travel of our team members! Thank you for your support and I hope that you enjoy reading upcoming personal accounts of experiences from our team members.
