BREVARD – Brevard College students will share what they learned on a recent trip to Cambodia during a presentation at 7 p.m. April 21 in the Porter Center for the Performing Arts on the college campus.

As part of the Brevard College Religion Studies course, “Global Experiences in Service,” Brevard College chaplain, the Rev. Shelly Webb, took six students to Cambodia to work, share, serve and learn.

The group, comprised of Webb, students and college staffer Kelley Eyster, left for the 14-day trip in March.

Webb said that the group traveled as a “Volunteers in Mission team” through the Western North Carolina Conference, and worked with missionaries from the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church.

Projects during the trip included building a concrete patio and painting a fence for the Methodist Bible School and working at an orphanage in Phnom Penh.

During the April 23 event, members of the group will share what they learned while in Cambodia about the culture, their project, the people they encountered and their own service-learning.
There will be stories, artifacts, a slideshow and sharing about the trip.
