Trammell has spent the last 5 months or so in Battambang, Cambodia. It's about a 5-6 hour bus ride from the capital of Phnom Penh. Battambang is probably best known for its agriculture. They are are a large producer of rice. In the northwest portion of Cambodia, throughout history, Battambang has been seen as the link between Thailand and Cambodia.
Trammell was recently transferred to Phnom Penh. He loved Battambang and the people there. He was able to see a lot of growth in the church. The church has two branches there which meet in rented space. Although the church has owned land in Battambang to build there own church for several years, the number of members has never been high enough.
Trammell recently wrote that one of the highlights of his mission was planning the groundbreaking ceremony for the church building in Battambang. My "Facebook friend," Mary from Battambang forwarded these pictures of thegroundbreaking.
the property the church owns is surrounded by the white poles.
