Missions Area: Cambodia

Cambodia is located in Southeast Asia. Bordered by Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam, Cambodia covers about 70,000 square miles. The majority of people practice Buddhism—only a fraction profess Christianity. The population of Cambodia is 16.3 million people, most of whom are very poor.

Nearly 97% of Cambodians are Buddhist and practice a kind of Buddhism that includes worshipping ancestor. They also have "spirit houses" in their homes to keep away the "bad spirits." In their ministry, the Potters love to tell stories from the Bible in hopes that the Cambodian people will want to learn about Jesus.
