2020 Mission Trips

BLUE SKIES

September 27 – October 2, 2020

We will create an amazing week-long camp for families that are dealing with childhood cancer. Our goal is to lift families above the clouds of cancer and help them “retreat” from their storms. Our goal is for weary parents to gain strength, sad and frustrated kids to laugh and play, for strangers to become friends, and for families to grow in their love for each other. This team will work tirelessly for the good of others and, most importantly, will witness people finding the hope that comes from Jesus Christ.

This year the team will travel to Kampong Thom, Cambodia and spend time with Dr. Castro and the kids of Bileg Solid Rock Children’s Home.  Our team will be the guests of honor at the graduation ceremonies.   These children will be completing a 4-month intense music study which we would like to enhance by having a few team members with music backgrounds.  Dr. Castro oversees a hospital, school and feeding centers and is currently building a nursing college.

The team will also travel to Poipet, Cambodia, along the Thailand border, to spend time in devotions, games, and activities with Steve Hyde and Imparting Smiles Children’s Home.  This is a new ministry partner for Saving Susan Ministry and will be our 3rd visit here.  There are over 30 orphan children living at this home.

To better understand the plight of the Cambodian people, team members new  to Cambodia will visit the Killing Fields/Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh with ministry partner Pastor Sihok, whose ministry included a dumpsite ministry, sports outreach and several churches.   We will have the opportunity to share the gospel and visit outreach centers and participate in activities with the children including a focus on sports.
