Contentment in Serving the Lord

When we arrived in Cambodia in September I didn’t have any idea what ministry was going to look like. We were told we were going to be working with victims of sex trafficking but after a little miscommunication we ended up doing a completely different thing.

Serving here in Cambodia has been nothing like what I expected but surprisingly I am okay with that. God has blessed me in so many ways on this trip and one of the ways is the contentment that he has given me in serving.

In the last few weeks, God has revealed to me how much I enjoy serving others. And even though I thought I was going to be able to work with trafficking victims, I find my self content in our ministries serving wherever there is a need. With that said I am content but I desire more. I want more of what God has planned and what he has to show me. I think that it is awesome to be content in where God has placed me but there is a healthy balance that can be achieved of being content but also striving for more and more of what God has planned for you. I am so thankful that God has given me a heart that loves to serve and that I can happily sweep a floor , feed a tiny child rice, teach an English, or take a walk around the city and pray and know that even though this may not be what I expected, I am still helping and serving others where there is a need. Maybe I have been so content because I have been doing a lot of work with children and I have a heart for kids. But I just see that as another blessing from God.

Since God has given me this contentment and love for serving others I am able to enjoy ministry .I can’t help but to want to love on the people here and give 110% of myself to our ministry. I am so thankful that I am able to be here in Cambodia serving people and I look forward to being able to serve at home.

“Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.” 1 Timothy 6:6


Only a month left and there are still so many people here to give love to! I look forward to our ministry here in Phnom Penh at an Orphanage and all the other ministry opportunities that may come our way. But honestly I have hit my being in a foreign country wall. So please continue to pray for our teams strength, health, and growth in this last month.

Thank you all so much for prayers!

Living life in Cambodia….for 30 more days.

Much Love
