As I reflect on the Juniors Global mission trip to Phnom Penh, I would sum up the experience with the words of one of our students; “I came to understand that Cambodia did not need me, I needed Cambodia.” I think she got it – God was there before us, with us, and continues on after us.
The team served a ministry that helps women at risk and has a home for those rescued from trafficking. The guesthouse where we stayed is operated to help fund this ministry and provide jobs for some of these girls. It excites my heart to see Cambodian Christians rising up to deal with pressing social issues facing their country, and being Christ’s hands and feet.
We also spent many hours at Divine Pizza & Ribs putting together some processes and spreadsheets to help with business operations.
I believe that Cambodia is in a time of spiritual warfare the country is poised for a revival – please continue to pray for what is happening there and the missionaries. It is a tough time to be there – we had some struggles with spiritual battles, and most of expats we connected with are struggling with one thing or another. It felt like going home getting the opportunity to meet up with old friends and share a place of love and encouragement with new friends.
