Journeys // Journeys in Southeast Asia, On Journey With Jesus

The Aroma of Christ within a World filled with Incense (to Idols)

Sarah Hastings travels to the Buddhist nation of Cambodia to teach Jesus and be a light for the hurting

Cambodia is a country with paralyzing disparities, where Lexus' weave in and out of motos and bicycles—and still demand the right of way. Sarah Hastings traveled to this part of the world to make a difference and share both the gospel of Christ and also His love. In her journey report, sent in after her first week of working in the country, she confesses to seeing hurt beyond what she was ready for, where little boys are forced to beg for dollars that are already earmarked to supply others’ drug addictions. Still, she has seen Him move, and is encouraged that He is bringing hope to an environment in Cambodia without much of it.
