Cambodia is a nation of over 15 million, the majority of whom are Buddhists but a land that now enjoys religious freedom and where the populace is receptive to learning about different religions, particularly if taught by a westerner. After the first baptism a decade ago, Cambodia is now home to four Christadelphian ecclesias with Sunday Schools, two Bible Education Centers (BECs), and an annual Bible School held in Phnom Penh.
In addition to the efforts of local Cambodian brethren, the scope of the work requires the support of volunteer field workers to staff the BECs and advance the preaching programs. WCF’s White Fields (WF) program supports field workers who ideally are able to spend 6 months to 2 years in the mission field. The White Fields program is designed to remove financial barriers that might otherwise hinder the participation of a brother or sister in the mission field. WCF provides a stipend to cover basic living expenses together with airfare if required. Usually the WF participant works in conjunction with the local Christadelphian Bible Mission in the host country. Over one hundred WF volunteers have participated in this program supporting the work in South Africa, India, Southeast Asia and elsewhere.
A recent White Field volunteer is Dustin Elsea, a brother from New Jersey who is planning to assist with the various projects in Cambodia. Dustin writes, “I feel like I will be able to connect with the young people there and share my excitement for God’s truth. Dustin brings experience from the performing arts, but whatever your skill set, there are opportunities to put your talents to work in the mission field. If you’re interested in becoming a White Fields volunteer please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
