Missions in the Wilderness: Milk and Honey Cambodia

Milk and Honey: Missions in the Wilderness is a one hour documentary telling the inspiring story of Dan and Renuka Brooker, a young Australian couple taking an unusual approach to missions and development in Cambodia. Challenging common preconceptions about cross­-cultural ministry, they ask the hard questions, and develop an approach that avoids the paternalism, dependancies, and colonialism common in the world of aid and development. With faith and determination they navigate through the challenges of a country still recovering from the devastating impact of genocide. Join them on their journey as they discover their calling, and experience the trials and triumphs of ministry in a spiritual wilderness.
