Overseas Mission Work
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." - Acts 1:8
As the body of Christ we are called to be God's witnesses. This happens in our daily lives as we live out our faith wherever any given day takes us. Sometimes the witnessing of our faith is more planned (like a short-term mission trip overseas or in the United States) with a specific goal and timeframe, while others take place over a longer period of time. We partner with several organizations beyond St. Andrews including the Sending Place, Capstone Ministries and Crossing Cambodia.
The Sending Place
“Capstone Ministries was founded in 2005 with a vision to restore street children and their families in Kisumu, Kenya. Capstone Ministries believes that family is the divine structure God has designed for the rearing of children. Family provides the necessary protective environment in which children can grow and develop. More than 1,000 children live on the streets of Kisumu. They survive by begging and stealing. They suffer from skin diseases, abuse from the public, poor nutrition and a lack of sanitation. Capstone’s program begins by building relationships with these children where they are. Daily, the staff of Capstone is on the street showing these children the love of God in Jesus Christ. Through counseling and an ongoing outreach program, the boys are reunited with their families.

More information regarding our partnership with Crossing Cambodia will be available soon. For more information on the ministry you can visit www.crossingcambodia.org
School Families Update
This year we will collect an offering each week for "Crossing Cambodia." Through this ministry we will be sponsoring a child in Cambodia to provide meals and a chance to go to school. We are sponsoring a seven year old boy named Hua who loves writing and looks forward to going to school. So far we have raised about $75. Thanks for your support!
