Well, our three weeks has come to an end, and what an amazing journey it has been. Many of our students signed up in the early part of this year, and our team has been busy preparing for much of it. Throughout our team meetings, one-on-ones and general preparation, we have been so impressed with all our students. They have been eager to learn, get involved and have fun, as well as getting along so well.
Started today with another 7:30 breakfast! Where I was late to, of course, munching on baguettes full of butter. After we hopped in the classic van and headed to a dreaded church service (jokes we love church) but I can tell you the girls and myself are missing some good worship and a sermon we understand.
Another toasty warm day in Kampong Thom began as usual with the addition of birthday decorations and songs for Anke’s 18th trip around the sun.
With only a few days remaining in Kampong Thom, the team has definitely fallen into a morning rhythm. Sleeping until just before breakfast is served, choosing the favourite spread for the baguettes and enjoying a selection of either water, coffee and tea - anything to help with the accumulated tiredness.
Today started the same as usual, baguettes with an omelette and black coffee - or baguettes with Vegemite/Nutella for those needing a bit of a change. Em then lead us in a time of devotions before we headed off to our village feeding program for the morning.
Today was the perfect mix of fun, rest, laughter and sheer terror! Breakfast in our pj’s and a lazy morning was exactly what we all needed after working hard the past couple of days.
(Sorry, we're a bit delayed on the Cambodia blogs!)...
What an incredibly fulfilling day we had with games and infectious laughter!
Another eventful day on Schoolies Rev. It began with Harriet and Pravini discovering that their air conditioner had started leaking and so commenced multiple room changes among the team in order to find the right air conditioner (a necessity for those of us who do not cope with an overnight temperature of 25*C).
Today was our first official church service with Evangelical Missions Alliance (EMA). So after breakfast, which consisted of the usual bread rolls and omelettes (as well as this time, noodles and pineapple) we headed off via car at 8:15 for the 8:30 service. We were greeted with many smiling faces and hugs from those we had met the previous night.
Today was a big day! We started out with breakfast at the hotel, the same baguettes, omelettes and bananas as yesterday, though some other spreads migrated out of suitcases to join the breakfast table. The message of hope and the strength of faith from the morning’s devotion looking at stories of how Jesus healed the sick and raised a young girl from the dead through faith, was mirrored in the rest of the day, with multiple prayers of healing being fulfilled.
