The Cambodia Bible Institute is a work of the Sunset Church of Christ in Lubbock, Texas. Rich and Ronda Dolan began their work in August 2007. Rich’s work involves teaching and training, lining up visiting teachers from the States, setting the schedule and curriculum, recruiting students and working with the local churches. He also tries to set up vocational training for the students so they can be self-supporting, if needed
In India, we help to support A. Visweswara Rao, or "Bro. V" as we call him and a children's home there. Over 40 B.A. members have "adopted" a child at Bro. V's children's home.

In July of 2011, after working with the church in Broken Arrow for several months, Brandon & Katie Price moved to Kharkov, Ukraine, to join a mission team who were already in Kharkov. Each Saturday, they have an English Study Program and Katie also hosts a cooking class in English. The purpose is to make new contacts with this outreach program and strengthen bonds with those they already know. On Sunday, they have a Seekers Study which is taught in Russian.
