In 2013, I (Bill) wanted to teach English in China, so I pursued at Lincoln Christian University a masters degree in Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). While finishing the program, I moved to Malaysia and got a small teaching job at UCSI International School. This would be my first real teaching position.
God honored my commitment and I was promoted to the position of school counselor over the school for one year. Meanwhile, I continued to teach English as a Foreign Language (EFL), English as a Second Language (ESL), and EFL (English as a First Language).
I was quite happy at UCSI, but God had other ideas. He soon packed up Shabana, Michelle, and me and sent us to Cambodia! Here I found a much different environment, one that has brought a great sadness to my heart. The average income here is only $250US per month. Serfdom is common as many young Khmer children have to work in order just to eat. Getting an education becomes a second choice or a third choice, or even no choice at all.
At present we are serving Khmer people through education and lots of prayer. Please join us in this endeavor by making a one-time donation or setting up recurring contributions through Bridge the Gap International, Inc. Your prayers and financial support mean the world to us. Thank you so much!
