Goshen church team visits ‘families’ in Thailand, Cambodia
GOSHEN — At the beginning of September, Grace Community Church in Goshen sent a 14-member team, including myself, to love on rescued orphans at homes the church supports in Cambodia and Thailand.
The church has sponsored the homes for eight years through an organization called Asia’s Hope. Twice a year, volunteers travel to Asia to spend time with the children and be their American “family.” In both countries, the kids live with local house parents, and are supported by the church until they are finished with school.
These are all children who have lost parents, came from poverty, and have been saved from sexual slavery and even death. They are being given access to education so that they can help shape the future of their countries.
