Our Global Partners at Friendship Ministries have set out to communicate the gospel in both word and deed by serving the poor through free medical care and education. In addition to the Friendship School, Friendship Ministries plants house churches, offers medical care, and community development projects to the people around Kampong Cham, Cambodia
The Friendship School
Poverty is a vicious trap for Cambodia’s poor. Education is one form of development that can help free them from the cycle of poverty; however, education is also hardest for them to attain. Most children in the provinces are unable to receive a sustained education, and many of them drop out of school by second grade.
To meet this need, our team started a small school introducing first grade in the fall of 2009. The staff consists of Cambodian Christian teachers who have a unique opportunity to serve communities and influence students, their parents, and neighbors for Christ.

Chris and Amy Gesler and their two daughters administer the Friendship School, which provides a quality education to rural children, who would not otherwise be able to afford the public educational system.
