Goshen Adventures (January 2018 update)
Seyha’s house is rarely empty. As an independent tour guide, he runs a business called Goshen Adventures, which ranges from cycling through Angkor Wat (the largest religious monument in the world) to dirtbiking through the countryside or jungle, to touring local villages and schools. He has his home listed on Warm Showers, a “couchsurfing” type of website geared toward cyclists, and he also knows several other people who often come and stay at his home. There are always new people coming through, and it’s been enjoyable for me to meet them. Some of them have been on the road for a year and they have lots of fascinating stories about the places they’ve been!
Here are some of the people that Seyha has connected with while I’ve stayed here for the last three months:
Jason flew in from England, as he does nearly every year. He always comes to spend time with Seyha, and this time was no different. He shared with us how he had found an Adventist center of influence close to his house in England, and he’d visited some. He hadn’t yet told them that he already knew a Seventh-day Adventist in Cambodia! Seyha was encouraged to hear that Jason has been seeking for truth even back at home in England.

Another group of three young cyclists/engineering school graduates from Switzerland (no picture) stopped through for a night. We didn’t get to spend much time speaking to them about God, but we chatted about other important things like politics and relationships.

It’s a simple ministry that God has used in big ways to change peoples’ lives. I’m glad that I’ve had the chance to watch God work through Seyha over these last few months! (Oh and if you ever want to go cycling or dirtbiking in Cambodia, I know the perfect person for you to talk to!)
