This mission trip continued to strengthen my passion for global compassion ministries and support of SERV. This experience is planned with proper engagement of our in country partners to understand and immerse in their culture in order to share love and confidence from a privileged US. It allows us to share God's love with those in less fortunate circumstances while providing a new level of appreciation and thankfulness for our many blessings here at home. Cambodia allowed us to engage our sponsored children/parents, embrace a local village, understand and respect the genocide that occurred in Cambodia, and appreciate the beauty of the sacred temples of Ankgor. I am appreciative of this opportunity to partner with SERV and for the support from my employer Varian. Not only are we a global leader in Oncology, but we embody a message of compassion for our world and that is truly a blessing.
