Cambodia Trip - May 27- June 5, 2005


Children listen to Bible stories at our clinic in Cambodia

On May 27, 2005, ten people left First Baptist Church Rocky Mt., N.C., to join Sue Singleton in Kompong Thom, Cambodia. Sue is a Southern Baptist school teacher missionary who has opened an orphanage as of January of 2005. The group included Dr. Bill and Becky Harden from Westminster Medical Missions and Dr. Robert and Cindy Schellenburg and daughter Katie, Asst. Pastor Larry and Janet Curtiss, Mona Powell, RN, Ken Orr, RN, and Melinda Pollock. Anne and John Lewis would join us in Cambodia.  The goals of the trip were to visit and assist Sue in her orphanage work and to do medical clinics in the local villages.

Even though we only were there working for five days, we were able to see approximately 1,000 Cambodians in our clinics. We left a large amount of medicine to be used after we left.  Below are some of the pictures of our team and the patients that we saw while there. A return trip is planned for next year and there is much excitement about what God allowed us to do in such a short time. A dental team is also a high priority for next year.  Medicine was supplied to Westminster Medical Missions through its relationship with King Benevolent fund. Also, this team was able to use some supplies from the Westminster Medical Missions basement as well as the infamous "black bags." Below are pictures of the team, a visit to the killing fields of Cambodia, home visits and crowds at the clinics, as well as a few patient photos.
