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
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.

Favorite Verse in Scripture: John 3:16
Something you are currently praising God for: Riverwood partnering with us in spreading the Gospel to the unreached!

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!
