Dear friends, I am thrilled to invite you to join us in Cambodia from Oct. 31 – Nov. 11, 2019. I have spent 6 years in Cambodia as the Country Consultant, where I have been moved by the way the lives of people in poor rural communities have been changed through the work of our staff and partners, and impressed as I see the strength and resilience of the people. For three years now I have led groups from North America on what has been described as a ‘spiritual pilgrimage’ to learn about Cambodian history and culture, develop meaningful relationships, and explore the work World Renew is doing. I love to see the bonds participants on these tours develop through their shared experience. Please email or call 1-888-WRLD-RNW by August 15 to secure your spot! Yours sincerely,
