Journey ’17

Destination: Cambodia & Thailand

1.6% Evangelical  |  Population: 82.8 Million  |  Language: Khmer & Thai

This summer my travels will take me back to one of my favorite areas of the World, Southeast Asia. I will start the summer as a part of the Global Ventures Set-Up Team. Here I will travel with key leaders from one of my favorite organizations and help pave the way for their incoming teams. I will take part in various areas of set-up, focusing most of my effort in scheduling local schools where teams will get to share the Gospel.

Once the teams arrive, I will join their ranks for 2 weeks. As a team member serving alongside John & Martine Smithwick of GV, I will have the incredible opportunity to take part in strategic street evangelism in local schools and secluded villages. Ministry will then culminate into epic mass crusades in the evening, where we will see hundreds, if not thousands, receive Jesus Christ!

When the GV ministry weeks have finished, myself and a dear friend, Helen English, will stay for an additional 4 weeks to help further GV’s Missionary Assistant Program in Thailand. During this time we will take part in multiple areas of ministry.

  • Discipleship Training
  • Church Bible Studies
  • Children’s Ministry Training

However, our main focus will be to effectively reach children through local outreaches in surrounding neighborhoods. The goal is to reach them each week and help lead them into the local churches where they can continue to learn about Jesus. During this time we will also be working with local church members to help teach and train them how to effectively carry out children’s discipleship once we return to the States.

We truly believe that the only way to change a nation is to reach its children and this summer, that’s exactly what we are going to do.

How You Can Help:

I am currently working to raise $8,500 for this summer’s ministry initiative. And I am already close to the half way mark. We have raised $4,000. That means we just need $4,500 more by April 1st.

The majority of my work will be in partnership with Global Ventures. With that, donations can be received through their ministry on my behalf. All monies received by Global Ventures on my behalf will go to fund this summer’s work. (If we should exceed our goal, any additional funds will be held for me for a future trip with GV).
