Living among the Khmer people

Living in the North West region of Cambodia, the team engages with communities struggling with poor health, low literacy rates and high unemployment. Currently the team is working to build on relationships it has formed through sports ministry and from travelling to remote villages to learn from local Khmer people. As the team grows there will be increasing
opportunities to share life and faith with the Khmer.

This year the team plans to spend more time in the rural areas, sharing the message of Jesus
with those who would otherwise not have the chance to hear it.
