While we continue to care for the needs of those within our community, we also recognize the need to reach out into the world. We believe that life is a long-term mission trip, and every day is a short-term mission opportunity.
Summit of Peace, along with Risen Savior and other Denver area Lutheran congregations, have been coordinating efforts to send mission teams to Cambodia for the past several years. A chronic problem in this impoverished country is the exploitation of children which occurs because children are providing for the needs of the family by street vending and begging. To address this, the congregations provide year-round support for Stronghold Cambodia. Stronghold Cambodia provides a daily meal for underprivileged children, educational programs, including English, math and computer training, Christian instruction, and instruction for the parents.
During the week of October 18, Summit of Peace will be partnering with Stronghold Cambodia to host a variety of events called Serving with Stronghold. Our prayer is to help Cambodian children and parents physically, intellectually and spiritually so they may carry out fruitful Christian lives.
There are several ways you can support Serving with Stronghold, both financially and spiritually. All proceeds will go to support our local church leaders to travel to Cambodia on future mission trips.
