Mikhail Cooper is attending his fourth year of Vanguard College. During this year Mikhail has felt lead to go to Phnom Penh, Cambodia for his internship. While he is away, Mikhail will be partnering with Ian and Tiffanie Rowley, however, his focus will be more towards Ian's ministry, the Global Student Centre.
The Global Student Centre is a dormitory for students to come and have a safe environment where they can stay while they attend university. The Global Student Centre is also a church for the students. Mikhail will be with these students, creating and forming relationships, discipling them, teaching English, partaking in small groups, and any other programs organized by the centre. While there, Mikhail hopes to equip the students to go out into their own communities to share the gospel with others.
Mikhail will also be helping ChildCARE Plus which is a sponsorship program that provides children and their families with food security, education, medical needs, as well as providing them with the gospel.
Over the past few years, Mikhail has had many ministry opportunities that have helped shaped him into who he is today. Ever since Mikhail was a Christian, he has had many mentors and godly people to who he's looked up. It is thanks to these people, and his ministry experience, that Mikhail has had a desire for people to know the gospel as well as equip them to spread the gospel to others.
