Shalom Summer Camp

We were recently privileged¬† to take part in Shalom Church’s annual youth camp in a small coastal town in the Koh Kong Province (4-hour bus ride). The theme of the camp was Why Love?, focusing on God’s love for us, and our love for others. We left Phnom Penh on Tuesday morning, and returned on Friday night (Aug 24th-27th). There were approximately 75 youth,¬† a number of them Non-Christian. Nate taught four sessions (in Khmer) while Ava and I participated by attending the meetings, but mostly…by making friends! She was definitely the star of the show, especially as some of the locals had probably never seen a white baby before. While it was stretching for us (the interesting food, Ava’s schedule being thrown off, language limitations [for me], etc.), we had a wonderful time with everyone, and we’re so glad that we could go! Achoon chraun, Shalom Church, for this opportunity. Thank you to those abroad who prayed for the Lord’s blessing during this time–please keep these young people before the Throne. Thank you also for your continued support, making such ministry possible. We are so very grateful!

Here are some visual images from the trip:
