Live out Christ in Cambodia!
Cambodia is a poor country (average income is $2 a day for about 80% of the population) but with beautiful people and culture. Thearavada Buddhism is the official religion of Cambodia practiced by 95% of the population.
You will have various ministry opportunities to live out Christ and share His gospel. Some of you will serve on a college campus, developing relationships and planting seeds of the gospel. Some will serve in one or two rural villages, working with children and adults participating in “wholistic” ministries. In one of the villages, you will be asked to teach English to a group of 30 to 40 kids.
You have to be willing to live in a very warm climate, eat mostly local food, and develop close life on life relationships with Khmers for five weeks.

Along the way, you'll do prayer walks and possibly have the opportunity to share Christ where His name is not yet named.
