Medical Mission Trip


BY JULIAN TEO 赵世伟

When I was a youth in COR many years ago, I often avoided the topic of missions. It therefore felt surreal to sit in the plane on 22 Oct 2019 and make my way to Kampung Speu,

Cambodia, for the sixth time. I teamed up with the medical NGO One-2-One.


A team from COR comprising of my co-leader Jasmine, Chong Jin, Veronica, Louis, Amy, Lingna and myself were beginning our medical mission. Together with our faithful Cambodian counterparts Rev Tit Hieng, Pastor Vibol and Peah, we teamed up with the medical NGO One-2-One. Over the next three days, we visited four villages in Kampung

Speu, providing free medical consultation, medicine and prayers for 242 villagers.


Some children had open wounds on their legs and the medical staff promptly helped to clean them up. Though the cleaning was painful, the children endured it patiently,

knowing that this was necessary in order to recover. It reminded me that when God is in the process of healing us emotionally, pain is sometimes inevitable as memories are surfaced and met with God’s amazing love.


We thank God for a chance to visit a totally new village! The health of the villagers here was generally poorer, and almost 100 villagers came during the medical consultation. Though we were exhausted at the end, God blessed us with a surprise! At the fringe of this village was a beautiful lake backed by several mountains. It was the most beautiful landscape I had ever seen in Cambodia!


Our Father loves the people of Cambodia and we can see His love moving in this land.


I would also like to take this chance to thank our prayer coordinator, Hui Im, and our personal prayer warriors who showered many prayers over us.


It is said that those who go on mission receive more than they give, and this is definitely true for me. Though there are challenges, a mission trip warms my heart in many ways. The smile on the children’s faces when they see you once again, the joy of catching up with our Cambodian brothers and sisters, and seeing how our Father chooses broken vessels like us to bring forth His healing are simply priceless.

多年前,当我还是复活堂的青少年时,我总是避开宣教的课题。因此,当我在2019年10月22日,第六次搭乘飞机前往柬埔寨的斯普镇时,这实在令我难以置信。


我们代表复活堂开启了一支医疗宣教团队,队员包括副组长 Jasmine, Chong Jin, Veronica, Louis, Amy, Lingna 和我自己。在柬埔寨忠心的同工 Tit Hieng牧师, Vibol 传道和 Peah的带领下,我们与非官方组织“一对一/一二一”组队进行活动。接下来的三天里,我们探访了斯普镇里的四个村庄,提供免费的问诊和药物,并为242个村民祷告。


我们发现一些孩童的脚上有未经处理的伤口,于是我们的医疗队员立刻帮他们清洗伤口。清洗伤口的过程固然疼痛,但孩子们都忍耐着,因为他们知道这样才能让他们早日康复。这提醒了我每当上帝要医治我们受伤的心灵时,回忆所勾起伤痛是在所难免的,但我们也会同时经历上帝奇妙的爱。


我们感谢神让我们有机会探访一个新的村庄!这个村里的村民们身体较弱,大约有100名村民前来问诊。到最后,我们虽然都精疲力竭了,上帝却给了我们一个惊喜!在这个村的边境竟然有一个以群山为背景的美丽的湖。那是我在柬埔寨看过最美的景色!


我们的天父爱柬埔寨的人民,而且我们看到祂的大爱在这片土地上运行。


我要借此机会感谢我们的祷告协调员Hui Im,以及我们专属的祷告勇士们,他们以代祷浇灌了我们。


有句话说“施比受更为有福”,我完全同意这句话,因为我们出去宣教时,得到的远胜于我们所给予的。虽然我们不时遇到挑战,但我的心在宣教旅程中倍感温暖。孩子们再次看见你时的笑容,与柬埔寨弟兄姐妹们再次相聚的喜乐,以及上帝如何使用我们这些不起眼的器皿,来施展祂医治的大能,这些都是宝贵的经历。
