Ministry in Stung Treng 

Stung Treng is a small transient settlement town in Northern Cambodia, close to the border of Laos, and is the least reached province in Cambodia. There is:

  • One Christian for every 270 Cambodians
  • One church for every 7,000 people

 

As a result of the genocide, 52% of the population is under the age of 24. These are the exact demographics that I feel God is calling me to minister to: the Cambodia youth and young adults.

Over 800 Cambodian youth come to Stung Treng from all over Northern Cambodia to study at training schools and universities. These youth represent over 100 Cambodian villages where there are currently no Christian believers. I will be working with these college students to teach English classes, hold Bible studies, disciple the Christian youth, and build relationships with the students.
