Swan Christian College is conducting its seventh Mission Awareness Trip to Cambodia in July 2013. The beauty of the Cambodian landscape, the mystique of Angkor Wat Temples and the welcoming smiles of the Cambodian people will make this trip an unforgettable experience.
Students are given the opportunity to engage in a wide range of mission experiences while being immersed in the rich culture of Cambodia. They witness firsthand the tenacious character of Cambodian people who have lived in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge and the destruction and poverty it left in its wake.
Organisations such as Hagar, Awareness Cambodia, and International Justice Mission will host the staff and students, and provide mission opportunities for our team. The team will work with schools, orphanages and slums both in urban and rural settings. Many of the children we work with have been orphaned and some rescued from the most horrific circumstances. We will share the message of God’s love with them through running games, craft activities, teaching English, conducting feeding programs, bringing creative presentations, and possibly helping with building projects.
The trip will also include other culturally enriching experiences such as museum tours, elephant rides, learning to cook and eating the local cuisine, perusing the markets for souvenirs as well as spending a few days in Siem Reab to explore the wonders of Angkor Wat.
