Short-term missions became a phrase in my vocabulary at a very young age. Having grown up on the mission field, I could not tell you how many short term participants I have seen roll through Cambodia. However, what I could tell you, is that there is a significant change in the local church and mission field because of them. A positive change. The change that can be seen in the local church, the congregation, the leaders, the youth, and the children. The change that can also be seen in the International workers themselves.
