Cambodia is a place that Restoration has grown to love over the past several years. In 2012 we commissioned Jesse and Sarah Blaine to serve in Phnom Penh with World Orphans and since then our relationship with their new community has blossomed. The Blaines attend Church of Christ our Peace (CCOP) and Restoration has had the privilege of sending several teams to minister through retreats and VBS to both their Khmer- and English-speaking congregations. We have had the opportunity to meet and engage with many of the Blaines’ friends, as well as pastors serving rural congregations in Cambodia, and expats who are working with NGOs in Phnom Penh.
Jesse was recently ordained to the transitional diaconate, and as he approaches his next ordination to the presbytery, we want to meet regularly to pray for him and his family, for their ministry, and for the many other people we have come to love in Cambodia.
