This past summer I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Cambodia with a missions team and work with Cambodia Outreach, an organization based in Cambodia's capital city, Phnom Penh. Led by pastor Jesse McCaul, Cambodia Outreach is one of the largest Christian ministry's in Cambodia. They have planted churches in 12 of Cambodia's 24 provinces and have a goal of reaching all 24 by the year 2020. In addition to church planting, Cambodia Outreach's ministries include children and youth ministry, discipleship, leadership training, healthcare, creative arts, and English language education. As we were a team of musicians, much of our time in Cambodia was spent working with the music ministry at New Life Fellowship, the primary church planted by Cambodia Outreach in Phnom Penh. We gave group and private music lessons, conducted seminars on the biblical and theological perspectives of worship, and helped the music team prepare for their next studio recording. We were also given the opportunity to visit and minister at two of Cambodia Outreach's provincial church plants, teach English classes, assist in providing basic healthcare, and partner with Operation Christmas Child by delivering gift boxes to children in an orphanage.
Spending six weeks in Cambodia was an incredible and eye-opening experience. I learned a great deal about Cambodia's beautiful culture and about myself. I believe God is doing amazing things in Cambodia and it is my sincere hope to one day return and worship with the believers there.
