I have been appointed by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to serve as a volunteer in the ELCA Young Adults in Global Missions Program. I am serving in Cambodia for one year beginning in August 2015, in the new and growing Lutheran Church community in Kruos Village.
ELCA Global Missions contributes $7,000 for each young adult's year of mission service. However, I am responsible for raising a minimum of $4,000 toward my support package which helps provide transportation costs, housing, board or food allowance, a small stipend, health insurance, orientation, and language training.
You can support me in a number of ways, including encouragement, prayer, and financial assistance. Please consider making a contribution in support of me.
While in Cambodia, I'm being generously supported by a large number of individuals - many of whom have opted to "sponsor a day" of my service year.
My suggested donation amount is $25 - for this amount, you can sponsor a day of my year in Cambodia - quite literally! When you make a contribution, please let me know which particular day you would like to sponsor (maybe a birthday, anniversary, or holiday - or another day that holds some significance?). On your day, I will send you a personal email about what your support has done for me on that particular day. You can even request that I do something special on your day - a particular act of service, a special prayer, etc.
As a sponsor, you will also be specifically thanked in my newsletter, which will be sent to my church community, family, and friends at least 5 times during my YAGM year. To sign up for my newsletters, please visit my main YAGM Cambodia page.
For more information on why I'm choosing to be a part of YAGM Cambodia, please visit my blog post here.
