Meet Josh and Hilary Smith

April 7, 2022

Last week, we introduced you to Azlyn McCarthy, our new missionary to Togo. This past Sunday, we introduced you to our second new missionary family, Josh & Hillary Smith, missionaries to Cambodia. But just as we did last week with Azlyn, we'd love for you to get to know the fun Smith family! Here are their answers to our simple "questionnaire."

Hometown: Largo, Florida

Connection to Riverwood: Fellow MBI graduates with Jake & Grace Epley

Your "one-sentence job description”: Joyfully serving Christ among the poor and lost in Cambodia

Meet Josh And Hilary Smith • Riverwood Church

Why you are in Cambodia: We are in Cambodia to share the Gospel, disciple people, and care for the poor.

One thing to know about Cambodia: Just 42 years ago, Cambodia experienced a devastating genocide called the Khmer Rouge

One cultural difference between Cambodia and Iowa: At weddings, it is common for a male and female actor to pretend to have an intense argument while the bride, groom, and family members laugh. Laughter is the universal language here.

One way Cambodia and Iowa are similar: People love eating bacon

Favorite Food: Papaya Salad

Favorite Book, Movie, or Hobby: Lord of the Rings

Favorite Verse in Scripture: John 3:16

Meet Josh And Hilary Smith • Riverwood Church

Something you are currently praising God for: Riverwood partnering with us in spreading the Gospel to the unreached!

Something you are currently struggling with: It seems like every other week, one of our family members has a "new" sickness.

Anything else you want Riverwood to know about you or your ministry: We need you! We could not do our ministry here without your support, so thank you so much for your prayers and financial commitment to help us!

We are on a mission to help people love like Jesus loved and live like Jesus lived.

It doesn't matter to us if you:

  • are a Wartburg student or a grandparent,
  • vote Democrat or Republican,
  • are married, divorced, or single,
  • have gone to church for years or haven't been to church in years,
  • make $100,000/yr. or wonder how you're going to pay rent this month,
  • or fear your past mistakes make you unlovable to God or others.

No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, we want to help you become who God has created you to be.
