Pastoral Training with Mission Direct

As for several years, Mission Direct has been sending short-term mission teams to Cambodia from the UK. Whether through teachers training or pastoral training, they have been a blessing to many lives in Cambodia both directly and indirectly for the glory of God along side Fellowship of Hope Church. This is in addition to the amazing work they do every year in supporting Serve Cambodia’s community development projects, through fundraising for and helping to build new facilities, homes and classrooms.

Last year, a couple of pastors whose names are Bob and Mike (who were part of the Mission Direct team) conducted pastors’ training for a few days on the Book of Nehemiah. They returned again this year with two other pastors Clive and Dave and taught on the book of Acts. They covered topics such as Pastoral care, sin, the cross, baptism, and worship while teaching from the book of Acts.

The training started on the 13th and finished on the 15th of February. Some of the pastors that were present were from the provinces and they brought some of their elders with them as well. Now they in turn are able to teach other pastors and elders across the rural areas of Cambodia with what they themselves have learned.

The training was mutually beneficial as the local leaders learned from the team and the team learned how churches work in Cambodia, the victories and the challenges faced by local leaders, and the sacrifices made by people from poor communities who dedicate their lives to serve Christ. They will be discussing about further training for the future, but for this year the local Cambodian leaders have received much and will in turn teach others what they have learned.

Spelling Bee Competition

The recent “Spelling Bee” competition was an event to test the ability of the students from Serve Cambodia’s Education Centres for how far they understood of their lesson that they had learnt previously, “the sounds, phonics and high frequency words.” All of the classes competed together.

Two of the classes’ student ability was almost equal except one class that was smaller than them, but doesn’t matter because the test was focus on the sounds and phonics and every classes had learn already. This program was taken place twice, once for the students that attend in the morning and again for the students that attend in the afternoon.

It’s ran for one hour only after student break time and all the classmates was invited as the audience and cheers out for the class. Moreover, we had invited parent of the competitor to see that their children were doing the competition in the school.

In a purpose that parents should be proud of the children and should do any afford to support for their children’s study. One of the parent that participated had said that “I was enjoy to see this completion take place and my child had an opportunity to join this program. It was very meaningful for me and my child and it really showed me that this school can bring the brilliant future for the student that study here”.

Healthcare Training for the Needy

In Serve Cambodia’s Medical Outreach project, we pay close attention to all children in our centers and our communities as well. We have a number of strategies for providing support.

Most Cambodians in remote villages in the province or on the outskirts of the city have difficulty obtaining or getting healthcare education. Their financial circumstance compel them to focus on earning an income rather than taking time to absorb healthcare education. However hard people work, when someone in their family gets sick their money quickly disappears because of the cost of medical care. We are trying to educate people to realize that prevention is better than treatment.

24169571_1964622683819073_121713845_o

We provide all the children and community with basic healthcare training, a dental care checkup twice a year, and BMI screening for the children every trimester. (BMI is a ratio of a person’s height and weight and while it does not specifically measure body fat but can be an indicator of body fatness). Every student needs some body fat but having too much body fat can put them at risk of health problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Having too little body fat is also unhealthy. Thus, every trimester all students have their BMI measured to ensure that their health is cared for and those with diet issues are given support and advice.

20615281_1917950638452823_133569753_o

Thus we are working on how we can fix this problem by providing basic healthcare training for both children and community.

Another important strand of our work is to work on basic hygiene. Hygiene is a term for various practices that help preserve a person’s well-being and health through acts of cleanliness. In short, proper hygiene is important for children in order to keep them healthy. To practice preserving one’s health through acts of cleanliness is very important for children. By brushing their teeth, washing their hands, and cutting their fingernails, children help preserve their health and that of others around them. All the children in Serve Cambodia’s three centers are taught how to brush their teeth properly, to eat a balanced diet and how to recover from the flu or common cold. This also lets them know the consequences of poor hygiene and what constitutes good personal hygiene.

20662565_1916758908605451_435053604_o

Additionally the community are invited to join training on healthcare knowledge every trimester in order for them to know how to protect themselves and their families. We have provided them some training in; first aid, hypertension, diabetes, dehydration and updated them on any current health issues. The community are also made aware that drinking plenty of water can treat some sickness without the use of medicine and they are also shown how to help people in an emergency. Feedback from the community is very positive and we found it encouraging to see how the community is sharing their knowledge with their family and community.

24139862_1964622653819076_1948497_o

We see it as important that the community not only obtain medical care but also get education at the same time.

17273858_1432451966826271_299128348_o

However, we are constantly looking for the next opportunity to help our community to improve its health care and for us to show Jesus’ love through our work.
