Serving with Stronghold

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.

How Summit Serves with Stronghold

Summit of Peace has been coordinating efforts to send mission teams to Cambodia for the past several years. Here are just some of the ways we have served with Stronghold on these trips, and how we work to bring Christs' love to the children and families of Cambodia.

  • Spiritual Support

    Each time Summit's mission team visits Stronghold, our missionaries host a Vacation Bible School for the local community. Summit helps the students learn about the love of Christ through crafts, Bible stories, music, and more.

  • Education

    Throughout Summit's time at Stronghold, our missionaries teach various classes to enrich Stronghold's already amazing program. Stronghold teaches English, Math, Computer skills, and more. Having primary English speakers helps reinforce the language - which is the fastest way out of poverty in Cambodia.

  • Home Visits

    Summit supports Stronghold by not only providing extra hands to help with important tasks, but by learning, understanding, and praying for the local families surrounding stronghold. Summit visits the homes of the Stronghold students each visit to bring Christs' love in their home.

  • Manual Labor

    Cambodia has many needs as a third world country, including manual labor projects like building fences, washing walls, and even building bathrooms. Summit supports Stronghold by offering additional arms to make these dreams reality.

  • Building Relationships

    One of the best way to show Christs' love is by building relationships with our neighbors, our community, and our world. On our mission trips, it is easier than ever to create bonds with the Cambodian children - who are already filled with joy! They are always ready to receive the love of Christ.

  • Providing Basic Necessities

    Summit and Stronghold together serve the Cambodian students, their families, and even the surrounding community. Teaching parents basic hygiene & providing families basic necessities is one of the ways Summit serves with Stronghold on mission trips.

  • Painting Murals

    Summit has spent time painting Bible Stories on the murals of Stronghold's previous buildings - which help make Storytelling engaging and are a great reminder of all He has done for us. Stronghold has moved locations and will need new murals!
