In less than two weeks our medical/dental team will leave for Cambodia, where we plan to hold clinics in the northwest region of the country. As co-leaders, Patti and I are blessed and humbled to serve alongside such wonderful teammates. We are comprised of five married couples, two sets of siblings, one set of cousins and even two individuals named Kerry (different genders). We also represent six churches and three states (Washington, California, and Hawaii). God’s call covered a wide area!
We plan to hold four and a half days of clinics in the northwestern region of Cambodia, near Battambang and Banteay Mean Chey. In addition to addressing the physical needs of those who visit the clinic, we hope to address spiritual needs as well by offering prayer and the opportunity to hear about Jesus.
This would not be possible without the twelve-year ministry of Jerry and Wilma Mishler. Originally from California, they answered God’s call to undertake the “Ultimate Rescue Mission” by actively fulfilling the Great Commission in the rural areas of northern Cambodia. Through discipleship and following a model for local house church leaders to train their own, On the Frontline Ministries continues to grow, reaching tens of thousands.
Not all of our time will be spent in a clinic. During our short stay in Phnom Penh, we will visit the International Justice Mission (IJM) and World Vision regional offices. In addition to meeting the staff and learning about each organization’s work, we will venture outside the offices to prayer walk and visit various projects in the city.
Thank you for your prayerful support.
