Hi! My name is Brittani and I’m from Colorado, USA. I am a servant of the Lord in the Kingdom of Cambodia and I desire to bring God glory wherever I go in whatever I do. I trust that His promises are Yes and Amen as He directs my steps through this gift of life. Feel free to continue reading below for some facts about Cambodia and more of my personal story.
The Kingdom of Cambodia
According to the Joshua Project, 43.2% of the people groups in Cambodia are unreached. Yet, Christianity is fast growing and the Lord has the door wide open for the Gospel to be preached. Click here to read an article from Christianity Today on recent news and religious freedom in Cambodia; it's a 'modern-day miracle.' Serving with New Life Fellowship Cambodia, I have the privilege of seeing the hope of the Gospel touch the lives of the Cambodian people.
My Missions History:
At age 14 I went on my first mission trip to Rocky Boy, MT on an Indian Reservation. It was then that I discovered that I wanted to do missions. When I was 17 years old I went on my first plane ride and first overseas mission trip to Haiti. God put foreign missions on my heart then. At age 19 I did a one-year discipleship training school and was sent to serve in Cambodia. As I left that beautiful country (so desperately not wanting to leave) and closed out my time in the program, God confirmed through His Word my calling back to the Kingdom of Cambodia. If you would like, you can check out my blogpost from 2015 sharing how God spoke to me about Cambodia!
Once God put returning to Cambodia on my heart, I went back to the ministry I did the discipleship training school with and served with them from 2015-2019. During that time I learned that, "A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps," Proverbs 16:9. Confident in my calling to Cambodia, I saw the Lord direct my steps as I served in other areas of the ministry. I spent time in Montana and Guatemala, aiding in the same discipleship training school I did and doing children's ministry. Clinging to the faithfulness of the Lord, I saw that "all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us," 2 Corinthians 1:20. God brought me back to serve in the Kingdom of Cambodia twice with that ministry.

New Life Foundation:
New Life Foundation is a Christian non-profit organization spearheading sustainable humanitarian work for the benefit of all in the community working hand-in-hand with the local church, formed in 1994.
New Life Foundation has many projects that help reach the community in different ways. New Transformed Lives is reaching children through food, complementary education, and the Gospel. Children at Risk is a one-to-one sponsorship program that is bringing hope and a bright future to children by breaking the poverty cycle through education and Jesus. Patient Care Ministry is helping the sick and poor get the medical attention they need and sharing the love of Jesus. The Skills Training Center is reaching young adults in education and computer skills for free to equip them for the future and share the good news of Jesus Christ. There are even further projects that are helping to impact the nation and ultimately serving for the Kingdom of God and His glory.
My Role in New Life Foundation:
I am currently running the publishing and donor communication for the Foundation. My focus is to cover all projects and share it on our social media accounts, do newsletters, and update supporters. I am blessed to build this up and be used to the fullest ability with the gifting the Lord has given me in media to help further the work the Lord is doing in this NGO.
In addition to my role in New Life Foundation, I volunteer with the children's and youth ministries in New Life Fellowship church. New Generation Youth is reaching the next generation of Cambodia through outreach and discipleship, of which I lead a small group in praying and studying the Bible together, as well as lead games for the larger events. For the church, I also I lead a small group that meets monthly to study the Word and pray together. I am so blessed to be a servant of the Lord in this beautiful Southeast Asian country and serve with New Life Fellowship/Foundation.
You can partner with me by praying for the Kingdom of Cambodia and specifically these areas of ministry. In addition, if you feel led, you can support me financially with a one-time donation or an on-going monthly donation. Thank you, may God bless you abundantly!

What Does Ministry and Covid-19 Look Like Here?
With Social Distancing and gatherings off-limits, here is what ministry looked like in 2020:
The biggest project that New Life Foundation is currently doing in this season of Covid-19 and what I get to cover for media is Saving Life Food Assistance. One food package helps a family of 5 eat for 2 weeks. We have been traveling across Cambodia to different provinces giving these packages out to families in need that are connected to New Life Fellowship church plants.
2021: Currently, the capital city, Phnom Penh, is on lockdown due to a surge in Covid-19 cases. Most of us can't leave our homes. Our ministry is online doing meetings, trainings, prayer groups, and small groups studying the Bible through Zoom and Facebook Live.
