We all have something to offer |Cambodia 2019

I returned from my short time of serving in Cambodia to give a short talk on my time there to the ladies that would attend PWOC. Thank you for your prayers in what to share. The worship and my talk were recorded. I hope it encourages someone out there to follow God however He leads. May you simply share whatever passions God put in you intentionally with those around you.

***PWOC Worship & 19:47 brief talk from 2019 Cambodia missions trip***

Recorded on November 20, 2019 in Daegu, South Korea. We do not own the rights to these songs:

Not Be Shaken – Norm Strauss

It Is Well – Kristine DiMarco, Horatio Spafford

Yes & Amen – Chris McClarney

19:47 starts a short talk about my time in Cambodia for a missions trip to encourage the young leaders there in various subject areas. This talk focuses on the fact that we all have something to offer the person next to us. We are not where we are by accident and so we can live with purpose sharing our lives and also Christ with one another.


Ephesians 4:1-16 (ESV)

Unity in the Body of Christ

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says,

“When he ascended on high he led a host of captives,
    and he gave gifts to men.”[a]

(In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth?[b] 10 He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds[c] and teachers,[d] 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood,[e] to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

Request for prayer the night before…

  1. I keep coming back to your blog to keep updated on you. I remember how we met sharing a hotel room with other women during our residency for Walden University. I am warmed in my heart to see how well you’re doing and serving others. Continue sharing the gospel and living radical for Christ.

    1. Wow!! This is so encouraging to hear from you here! I had no idea you were checking up on me! (This helps me remember I need to keep this blog more updated!!) So….you know I’m in Korea right?!? I remember your love for K-Pop unless I’m mistaken- was that not you? You were the first I ever knew that knew about it but now I see there are MANY 😂 just like you! There are many foreigners here who have been hired to teach English! I’m not sure if you have moved on from this idea or not of coming here but you certainly can! Also I remember your organization binder purse … I only discovered it near the end. Actually come to think of it, I think I shared with you the great difficulty I had at the end of that residency. I wonder what is going on with you? I hope that something that I would share would be encouraging to someone out there. Receiving your note helped me to remember that you just never know who is listening- so keep sharing- as I am led to do. Thank you again LaShonda!
