Our Lutheran Hour Ministries International Volunteer Team from St. Paul Lutheran Church, Mt. Prospect, Ill., continues the journal of their trip to participate in the ministry of our Cambodia ministry center.
After a quick stop to the market, we travelled three hours by bus to Kampot—our home for the next 5 days. We learned quickly that driving here is much like a game of chicken and not for the faint of heart. Cars, trucks, buses and scooters drive either way on both lanes, darting to where ever there is space to fit. It helped to be distracted by the beautiful scenery of the landscape outside and the lively conversation inside the bus. Pastor Philip, Naro and Peter escorted us on this journey and answered our questions about Cambodian culture and their way of life.
The topic of our devotion tonight was God’s commandment to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth. We are very far from home—perhaps even at our “ends of the earth.” Yet, because of the kindness and hospitality of our hosts, we already feel right at home. We are one in Christ!
