On Saturday afternoon, May 31, Joshua Hooker will share his experiences and pictures of being a missionary in Cambodia at the Holly Seventh-day Adventist church, 16180 Fish Lake Rd., at 4 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

 Growing up in a missionary family stationed in Cambodia, Hooker went back as a student missionary right after he graduated from Southern Adventist University. He has spent the last three-and-a-half years in Cambodia as an Adventist Frontier Missionary among the Great River People.

 The Great River People are a Muslim minority with a separate language from the Khmer, according to Hooker. “This group has no Bible in their language, no Bible study materials, and even the song, ‘Jesus Loves Me’ is yet to be translated,” he said.

 He spent his time bringing sick people to the clinic, teaching English, and teaching the Bible. He also encourages newly converted Christians who are often under immense family pressure. Joshua says that the biggest blessing God gave him were the many friendships that became “bridges of trust” in the community.

 Traveling extensively, Hooker shares his knowledge about the people of this world that are unreached for Christianity, where they live, what is being done for them, what is yet to do and where they are in their relationship with God. His presentation will include a current update on Cambodia.
