Klement Backpacking & Ministry 2012 Itinerary

Our batch, Klement '09, have chosen the theme, "11 Days, 2 Countries, 1 Mission" in this year's edition of Klement Backpacking and Ministry.

We were on the road for 11 days-- from July 23 to August 2, 2012. We explored 2 beautiful countries-- Thailand and Cambodia. And we had just 1 mission-- to share the love of Jesus Christ to the people of these countries and to minister to the needs of the children at Wat Preah Yesu Orphanage in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

ATTENTION! Klement Backpacking and Ministry participants with some airport guards.
