Cambodia bloggers challenge

Give now

This week, three UK bloggers will travel to Cambodia with Tearfund to visit communities living in poverty being transformed through the local church.

They will meet people who are being given a hand up from poverty thanks to the generosity of regular givers in the UK, with a challenge to invite 60 new people to give regularly to support Tearfund’s work in Cambodia.

All this week, they will be telling their stories and encouraging others to join their journey - so stay tuned and keep an eye on that barometer!

Current progress

If 60 people signed up to give just £3 a month it could mean nearly 70 new families could go through the Church and Community Mobilisation process. It could mean 70 families are able to send their children to school, learn new farming techniques, and put food on the table.

The familiar music provides a hook for the Gospel. Some of the fastest-growing churches today use music as a hook; I think of the […] The post “Prosperity Theology” as a Hook for the Gospel: Hanging out with Christians in Cambodia appeared first on Dreaming Beneath the Spires.

Communities all over the world are finding their own ways out of poverty with help from the local church.

One of those communities is Tonle Batie in Cambodia, a village suffering with the daily struggles of poverty - no water, poor sanitation, lack of education, and hunger.

This month, we’ve invited three talented bloggers to travel with us to Cambodia, to see for themselves how the church is transforming lives in Tonle Batie and other communities.

We’re challenging these talented bloggers to help us invite 60 new people to support our work in Cambodia. Through their powerful and passionate storytelling, we can reach this target and bring immeasurable change to communities all over the world.
