Was walking in the market, the other day. Just as I was feeling sorry for myself, walking like an oversize penguin, I looked up. Ahead of me was a mum with her son, walking and listening to a Khmer guide, telling them all about the wet market, while both of them listened and smelled at everything? Now, I said, I felt sorry for myself……. This young man could barely walk. Holding onto his mum and shoveling along, he enjoyed the market. Gold medal to mum for bringing her son to experience every little thing. Great for me to stop feeling sorry about myself. Lesson learned………
Both Toinette and I have the opportunity to speak into the lives of a few Khmer students at Ywam. Toinette still need to teach 2 more days while I finished today by showing some gross movies. At least let the translator vomit…….. I was so encouraged by their remarks afterwards. Just the thing I needed right now. What we do is not in the limelight and it can become a bit discouraging at times. Hearing the Khmers thanking you for being faithful to their nation is very much appreciated. It is such an honor to help people in such a way. I am looking forward to these guys’ outreach in January, when we can work together. Pray for these students that need to learn so much stuff.
FGC will receive a team at the end of the week and is hard at work to get everything in place. Pray for the staff not to get tired with everything they need to do. Pray that they will get some time to relax as well and find peace in working hard.
Health wise, we are slowly getting there. My leg still swells up but that is much better than before, can feel that it is still painful on touch. My broken leg is giving some troubles but nothing too hard for Ibuprofen to handle.
Pray for our friend Brett and Sithorn Medlin that are leaving for the States in order for Sithorn to get an operation. Met up with them the other day and had a great fellowship.
Thank you for praying for us all. Really appreciate your prayers.
