What does missions look like? This is the question that was challenged and refined during our trip to Cambodia.
My wife and I both went to Cambodia for two and a half weeks to focus on teacher training. We were able to share strategies on classroom management, special education, assessment, provide resources, and build relations with the teachers at Living Fountain Orphanage, Glad Tidings Private School, and a local public school.
At the orphanage, we spent time with the kids by sharing meals together, playing games, singing songs, and attending services. We also spent time with the mothers working at Living Fountain to listen to their stories, encourage them, pray together, and share a smile.
We were fortunate to meet people who we have been praying for for many, many years — people like Pastor Edu, Pastor Jojo, Rev. Song’s 2 disciples. It’s an incredible feeling putting faces to names we’ve prayed for through faith knowing that God listens.
