With graduation and summer quickly approaching I've been praying for God to send me on another missions trip. And He is sending me somewhere, a place He has been showing me but I never really told anyone or actually thought I would go. I will be going to... CAMBODIA.
You're probably like, "What the heck?!"
That was my reaction too! I was like, "Are you sure God?"
But over and over He kept revealing it to me and I don't want to ignore His call.
All I know about Cambodia is that it is in South East Asia. It's truly a God thing how it all happened. Last year God started showing me Cambodia but I didn't think too much of it, I was just like, "Oh that's cool," and even when I spent the summer in Mexico, Cambodia was revealed to me there. More recently it has been coming up A LOT. A pastor spoke at our church and briefly mentioned Cambodia.
I texted my friend and told her, "I am so SHOOK, Cambodia just came up again." I had recently shared with her how much Cambodia had been popping up in my life and we knew it was something that required prayer.
Following the service I went and introduced myself to the pastor, I expressed my heart for missions and told him I was interested in going to Cambodia. Turns out his church is taking a trip in June.
I don't know why God is calling me there but it's so evident that I need to go and I cannot ignore that. I shouldn't be begging God for confirmation, if HE revealed something to me I need to accept it and not keep asking for signs.
Lesson of the day, if God is calling you to do something do it, and I am not saying that I am super obedient. We all know I can be a stubborn person but when God calls us to something we have to trust that even though we cannot see it at the moment He has a reason.
The trip will be for two weeks and I do not know one person from that church so it'll be a whole new experience for me. I don't know if this is a place God wants me to go for long-term or just a one time thing. But I am truly open to wherever HE wants to send me and I just want to go.
None of this is coincidental and I am so excited to see what this trip will lead to and what else God will reveal to me. I am in so much awe at how perfectly timed this is all happening.
Please keep me in prayer that I remain obedient to God, open to His plans, pray for the preparation of the trip not just for me but the team that will be going and the people we will be ministering to.
