The Beginnings of the “Wood Pile”
The story of the Wood family began some 11 years ago on a chilly, rainy December day. On that day, the first two pieces of the “Wood Pile” were brought together. Truly, though, the story begins even earlier than that day. Alison was converted to Christ in November of 1998, during her junior year of high school. About a year later, I (Adam) found the Savior (or rather, was found of Him) in August of 1999. It truly was God’s work and power to bring us together during our final year of high school at Tabernacle Christian School in Greenville, South Carolina. After high school and a 6-month period of training in the U.S. Marine Corps, Alison and I were married. The story was just beginning.

That place was the southeast Asian nation of Cambodia. We have been working in this nation of 14 million souls since November of 2008, some 6 years now. We can’t think of anything else we had rather be doing! We invite you to browse around to familiarize yourself with what has been happening in our ministry here.
