Good morning friends, or whatever time it is for you right now. As we have mentioned in weeks past the Cambodia trip is looking great. I have been in touch with the crew over in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and they are ready to host us. We have worked together for many years so for me it is like going home and for them it is like hosting good friends.
We have had a lot of interest in the trip. A couple of groups are very interested as well as a bunch of individuals. This post takes it to a more administrative level. If you are planning on joining us on this outreach what we need from you ASAP is the Cambodia 2011 Application Form. This form is for you or your group to fill out and have your place reserved for the Steps Of Justice outreach. Please download it, print it out and send it to Steps Of Justice at the address on the form. You can also get it by clicking on the main Cambodia 2011 outreach page linked here.
This is going to be our 1st Steps Of Justice outreach and I am so excited about doing this with you. If you know me then you know that I have been hosting teams for the past 12 years. This trip will be very similar to the Mission Adventures trips that I have hosted in the past, the difference being that everything on this trip is going to be very intentionally geared towards doing justice.
In my previous post on Haiti someone commented by saying that it was a waste of money and resources to send a group of people across the world for only one or two weeks. I am not asking you to comment back to this person, I am just saying here that I very much disagree with her statement. It says in the Bible “and how can the know without someone preaching to them, and how can they preach unless they are sent? How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news. This is the news we are bringing to Cambodia, the good news of Jesus. The good news that heals the sick, raises the dead, cares for the orphan and preaches to the poor.
This trip is not just about us them though, it is about us as well. Our lives are going to be changed forever as a result of obedience to the great commission. Get ready for change. Get ready for your worldview to be shattered and wrecked forever. And get ready for you to love every second of it, both the easy and the difficult.
If you have any questions please email me and we can discuss more about the outreach and what it will look like exactly.
