From Craig & Kim Barnes
Two years ago today we packed our final few things and boarded a plane. It's crazy to think that it has been two years since we first departed for Cambodia, leaving behind all that we knew to enter a foreign country.
Two years later and once again we are waiting for a flight back, which may be a long time coming! In the last two years though, Cambodia became our home, and so next time we board that flight it will not be leaving for a foreign land, but a returning home.
Many people ask us when we will be going back to Cambodia, but it one of those questions that we cannot answer as no-one can know when borders will open again, and when International flights will take off. In the meantime we are using our time to complete an early home assignment and creatively meet with churches and supporters. We have prepared a short video that reflects on our last two years in Cambodia and gives an update as to our current situation.
Please feel free to share this video with your churches and home groups. Please contact us if you would like to hear more of our stories or to share with your church or small group.
In the meantime, we are praying for you all in this time, we know that our God is great and He holds all things and He sees us and He knows us. Even when we are all physically distant from our friends and family.
Cathie and Andy Staunton
Others of us in Tasmania know Victorians Cathie, Andy and family, who arrived in Cambodia late in 2019.
Cathie introduces our team in Cambodia in this video made especially for May Mission Month. It shows more of an overview of how the team lives in Siem Reap.
