If Only for the Two

Hey, As many of you already know I get the priviledge of being a missionary here in Cambodia and I LOVE it! We have a learning centre called Ezra where English id taught Monday to Friday and Bible School/ Study on Sundays. 80-120 kids come to Ezra each day from the ages of 5-25. They come from all kinds of backgrounds and we love all of them! They are beautiful on the inside and outside. They are fun and full of smiles and good times. How could one not love them!? Teaching English gives them skills that are valuable in the workforce here. Having good English can get you better jobs and help you be more successful in those jobs. It helps our students be able to interact with foreigners, which there is not shortage of in this country. It helps them get into better schools and ahve more opportunities in general. But we do what we do for than just education. English is a door for us to be able to teach the kids about God. English draws them in and then we get the opportunity to love them…

First of all, Thailand happened. In April my family and I left Cambodia for two and a half weeks to vacation in Thailand. We had been here for two years and a break was in need. It was amazing, relaxing and well worth it. We spent a whole lot of time in the water and the sun plus plenty of down time in the air conditioning reading and relaxing. We went kayaking, snorkelling, hiking and just general adventuring. But when the time was up we were happy to get to go back home to our kids and our centre. Our time away helped us to see why we do what we do and just how much we love it all. And then...

Teams happened. We've had quite a few teams, interns and…
