Definitely Not Paradise

Written by Serena Lee

I’m just being honest but Cambodia is definitely not paradise. I mean, life here is good, but I think that home back in Hawaii was more of a paradise than here in Cambodia. As I thought this out, I remembered that being a missionary doesn’t mean moving to a paradise. It means moving to a place that needs someone to show them the true God, the God of mercy, love, grace, faith, and hope. Even if it means going to a not very well- developed country, a missionary will go. A missionary will go, not in the name of himself (or herself) but will go in the name of the Lord. Even though this place isn’t exactly what paradise looks like, I will still serve as a servant of God!
