Swamp Corps-Cambodia will be a challenging and rewarding opportunity to serve God in SE Asia. In modern history, the people of Cambodia have suffered greatly as a result of multiple civil wars, collateral damage from The Vietnam War, genocide at the hands of the Khmer Rouge communists, and sustained power struggles and ongoing corruption within its political parties and government. The vast majority of Cambodians are Buddhists, live very hard lives and know little, if anything, about the Gospel of Jesus. The median age in Cambodia is 24.9 years: this is a very young population and they are searching for delivery from what their world has to offer.

God has worked powerfully in this tiny country to bring spiritual hope to its desperate population. In 1992, in the nation's capital, the Phnom Penh church of Christ was planted; today there are five churches and 380 disciples in Cambodia. In 1996, HOPEworldwide was instrumental in opening the Sihanouk Hospital Center of HOPE, also in Phnom Penh. HOPEww has expanded its influence and now manages three more medical facilities in the capital city as well as the Sonja Kill Memorial Hospital in Kampot. Collectively, the combined mission of these HOPEww projects is to ensure "free" medical care to the "poorest of the poor." The evidence of God's work is visible in the lives of this country's disciples as well as those Cambodians who have received medical care from HOPEww facilities. Despite life's hardships, these are some of the most grateful people on the planet because they have been touched by God's love through the church and HOPEww.

Swamp Corps-Cambodia is God's next tool in sharing His love with the next generation living in this part of the globe.

Joining us in Cambodia next May will be a life-changer for you and for the heart and soul of many youthful Cambodians.

Almost 50% of the world's population lives in Asia, and Cambodia is bordered by Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Swamp Corps has already made a huge impact by logging four consecutive years in India, Asia and the world's 2nd largest population. As Swamp Corps moves further East, we hope that you will join us as we share the Swamp camp culture to one of the more remote areas on God's planet...who knows where that will take us next!
