Cambodia is a beautiful country that God created but it has its Darkness; as do all things on earth. Nowadays mission work takes on many forms: some of us preach the gospel, some work in an office, and some build things... We need all types of missionaries because all of us play significant roles in making a difference. No matter what we do though, we are all called to bring light to the darkness, as John 1:5 said, "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." We all have one thing in common: we are only a delivery person; to deliver the lights... and we will keep on doing so until God says: "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!" (Matthew 25:23).
During this process, we will encounter challenges. The darkness is strong and I realize more and more everyday that challenges will come when you're fighting it. No matter how tough the challenges are though, the light will prevail through His Power and Strength. So I pray daily for strength, compassion, kindness, and wisdom... That God will give us direction.
