The team was invited to make a presentation on July 7th at a public school. “Uncle policeman’s” wife is the director of the school. There were about 100 children in attendance. They were packed into a classroom with 3 to 4 kids sharing a desk. It was amazing site. In American parents would never settle for things like this. But, the kids all have such joy in their faces, and just love watching the Americans do puppets and our David story. Participation from the kids is just awesome. The team now knows 5 Kami songs. They are picking up good on the language and love learning. We have one hour of language studies every day, that is given by our BMW intern. She is wonderful. On July 8th we visited another village (Romeas), the team did a full presentation. Kids all have such joy in their faces, and just love watching the Americans do puppets and our David story.

We had nothing scheduled at these villages we just took off and started to ride and would let the Lord guilde us!! It was amazing time, we would just stop in the villages and our BMW intern would introduce us and before you knew it there would be 30 kids and 10 adults. We rode our bikes about 55 k on the 9th. On the 10th in coordination with Pastor Mormsao we were able to visit 3 villages, Khnataimok, Oakakhob, and Chres Vilages. All of these villages have about 1,000 people. We received a warm reception at each village. There is not an active witnes at these villages, no church. Pastor Mormsao would like for us to plant a Sunday school at each of these location. We had 50 + in attendance at these villages, with Chres Village having 70 kids and 20 adults. The fields in these villages are ripe unto the harvest!! We will be visiting Pastor Mormsao again in the upcoming days to visit three more villages, he would like to have a full circuit in the area.
Cambodia is beautiful Or project is coming along well. I love being able to watch the kids faces as we teach about the love of Jesus. Sometimes it becomes tiring doing the same thing over and over but being reminded that it is the first time for each kid is very renewing. And while driving the motorcycle it is amazing to see all of Cambodia. The spiritual need here is immense, and I am so thankful to be here and spreading the good news about my Jesus.
Life here in Cambodia is beautiful everywhere you go you see the many rice fields and water buffalo, but most importantly the people. The Cambodian people are some of the most respectful and fun loving I have ever met. God has been showing me what it truly means to share the gospel with these wonderful people, even if that includes making a fool out of yourself. I thank God for these past two weeks and the wonderful experiences I have had and hope that the rest of our trip will be just as fruitful.
