ASIA

Asia: Contrasts Are Only the Beginning

 

Asia is the world’s largest and most populous continent, covering about 30% of Earth’s total land area. Asia is notable for not only its overall size and population but its dense as well as barely populated regions within the continent of 4.4 [?] billion people. Asia has exhibited economic as well as population growth during the 20th century, but overall population growth has since fallen to world average levels. Given its size and diversity, the concept of Asia may actually have more to do with human than physical geography. Asia varies greatly across its regions with regard to ethnic groups, cultures, environments, economics, historical ties and government systems.

Cambodia: Meghan Lutz

Meghan is returning to Cambodia to work for Hope International School in Siem Reap. She will be teaching English and Mathematics for grades 5, 6, 7, and 8. Hope International is an English-speaking school, but most of the students are from families who are not native English speakers. There is also a percentage of children from foreign aid workers who are in Cambodia for humanitarian projects as well as some local Cambodian (Khmer) children. Many of our students are children of missionaries whose parents are unable to homeschool them. Meghan’s desire is to help support local missionaries and their families who are working with the lost and hurting in the community. This school provides a way for both mothers and fathers to be involved in reaching Cambodia, which doubles the amount of people sharing the Gospel in the city and countryside.
