Smith, Luke & Sokha

Serving in Cambodia | Acct # 17118

PERSONAL NOTE

Luke and Sokha work in the countryside of Cambodia with a focus on village church planting, student outreach, and translation, recently translating the Westminster Shorter Catechism into Khmer. They met in Cambodia during Luke’s first term on the field and were married in July 2011.

Luke grew up on a farm in west central Illinois. Through short-term missions trips with a campus ministry while studying agriculture at Western Illinois University he started thinking about missions. During graduate school at the University of Missouri, he was impacted by the missionary biography “Through Gates of Splendor” and his burden to be a missionary grew. After graduation, Luke studied at Dallas Theological Seminary. He continued to prepare for the mission field by working with refugees and serving in his church, New St. Peter’s Presbyterian. Luke was ordained as a teaching elder in the North Texas Presbytery in September 2009. He arrived on the field a month later.

Sokha, a native Cambodian, trusted Christ as a teenager in a Christian orphanage. She studied English in college, and after graduation spent time working with an orphanage, tutoring missionaries learning Khmer, translating at a Bible school, and teaching grade school in English. She has a burden to reach her own people with the gospel.
