Desperation Team

For the past two weeks we've been busy with the first of our summer teams for this year: a group of twelve teens and young adults from New Life Church in Colorado Springs. During their short time here with us, the Desperation team helped with children's outreach, youth ministry, Sak Saum projects, English classes, skills training with orphans, church ministry, outings with Father's House children, and more! They also were able to donate two wells and many roofing tarps to families in need, and blessed a rural church with chairs and Khmer Bibles. 

Whether preaching, teaching, or coloring with kids, this team was a great example of humility, service, and love. As a ministry, we were so blessed by their cheerful attitudes each day! Below is a fun video with some of the highlights of their outreach. Enjoy!

Many exciting things are on the horizon for In His Steps this year, not the least of which is the many short-term teams that we are expecting to visit and work with us throughout 2011. In fact, we just said goodbye to our first team this year, a YWAM Crossroads team of three families. They stayed with us for over a month, doing children's ministry, English classes, Bible teachings, a pastors' marriage seminar, and more. Below are some photo highlights of their outreach, which we hope you enjoy!

These past few weeks have flown by here at In His Steps… On Tuesday we said goodbye to an outreach team that was visiting us from our New York home church. The team was made up of nine teens and adults. For three of them, it was their first time in Cambodia!

The team did many things in their short time here, including leading a children’s VBS, taking our Loaves and Fish orphans on a fun field trip to a museum and water park, helping with Foundation Center repairs, and preaching at our new Sunday morning services in Saang. They also led games, performed dramas, and spoke at our weekend youth programs, taught English and guitar, led devotions for our Sak Saum women, and much more. In other words, they were quite busy!
