Stepping Out on Faith, Trusting God to Change the World

I need to start this post by stating that at Crossing Cambodia we are Christians and everything we do is because of our faith in God. When you come to our website, a permanent fixture at the top is “Stepping Out on Faith, Trusting God to Change the World.” I say this because lately I’ve…

God’s Solutions are Simple

Our kids like to draw. So much so that they were tearing pages out of their notebooks and drawing at school rather than paying attention.   So we made an arrangement that they would get one clean sheet of paper each day to draw on. Whatever they liked, but they couldn’t use their notebook paper…

New Year, Same Love

New Year’s has come and gone, and already many of us have forgotten about Christmas.  Along came Boxing Day for our Canadian friends and most people have packed away the Christmas trees, eaten the leftover cookies, celebrated New Year, and now we’re thinking about the year ahead.  We’ve got big plans and Christmas seems so…
