Cambodia is a third world country and one of the poorest nations in the world. Since the late 70’s when over 2 million people were killed from the Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge, the country has struggled. Widows and orphans were left without the basic needs of food, shelter, medicine and more. FCOP International is a church planting movement that cares for widows, orphans, and separated children in need. They're dedicated “to building the kingdom of God through meeting the urgent needs and doing good deeds to bring holistic health to hurting and oppressed people.”
We will partner with FCOP International in helping them care for widows and orphans thru a short-term missions trip. We'll be visiting some of the children's homes in remote areas of Cambodia and ministering to them and their needs. Many of the homes are in need of improvements due to normal wear and tear along with the harsh sun and stormy rains. We'll be assisting in providing a safe home for the children it serves through improvements and building projects that will help FCOP International continue their mission.
We believe when people engage in service, it leads to life change. Our short-term trips provide opportunities for people to serve together in various locations around the world. Our belief is that as people chose to serve, whether in one of our churches, in the local community, or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives—for those serving, for the people they serve, and even for those that see them choosing to give their time to help someone else.
For those of you who have not gotten involved, we hope this will be the year you choose to begin a lifestyle of service. And to those who are serving, we just want to say thank you. You are the reason the mission is being accomplished.
