Bridges of Light Mission
The Hatch’s current mission is to invest themselves in the lives of missionary children at HOPE International School in Phnom Penh, Cambodia enabling parents to serve in the capacity of God’s calling as career missionaries. Tim and Grace are fulltime teachers while Christi, Daniel and Josiah attend high school. With God’s provision, the children keep current with US educational standards by supplimenting their studies with A Beka home schooling curriculum.
Aside from HOPE School teaching responsibilities, the Hatches are active in their home church in Phnom Penh, Tim as a substitute preacher and Grace in women’s prayer and Bible studies. Twice weekly, Tim travels outside Phnom Penh to instruct Cambodian pastors and church members in effective methods of teaching Bible memory verses, scriptural songs and Bible lessons to children. Additionally, he works alongside expatriate and indigenous Christians in evangelism and discipleship in local churches and church planting movements. Trips to rural villages have supplied medicines, Bibles, reading glasses and spiritual support for local Christians.
We hope this website will challenge you to pray for us and partner in bringing salvation, hope and peace to the hearts of many in Cambodia.
