Mission Project - Mongolia

2014 saw the completion of 6 new community centres across Mongolia. Various teams coordinated and participated in an international team of construction workers, followed by a mission by a team sent to strengthen relationships between the new centres and their communities. An additional 6 trips are planned for 2015. Pictured is the nearly completed (August 2014) community centre in Chiggis, Khentii.

Mission Project - Cambodia

In 2011 the construction of a church building for the people in Thom Pong was completed, as well as providing much-needed food and bicycles. Pictured above is the church nearing completion of the second floor in September 2010. The centre, managed by SeeChange International (founded by CABSDA members) is now (2014) used as a training and development centre for the community and continues to host student missionaries from South Queensland.
