O yea this year is a goner. Time fly at a speed no-one knows how fast but we are ending this year soon. Christmas decorations are even up here in Cambodia, where a few years back, nobody even thought of celebrating it. Now it’s a very big celebration and mostly money making business. All the NGO’s are having their parties for people they are working with and you can feel a festive feeling in the air. On top of that its harvest season and people are glad to have food to eat. Even the thieves are taking an early Christmas gifts. They took Toinette’s phone through the window, while she was asleep.
I had to make a short trip to Phnom Penh and finally have a NGO visa, good for one year. We are happy. Please pray for favor at the Department of Education to get our NGO’s Mission of Understanding, done, so we are in the clear for next year. It is more than a year that we are struggling now to get this paperwork through the process. All excuses but nothing happening.
I want to include dear friends of mine in our prayer list. They are Jacob and Carmen Geyman with their 2 boys and newly born twin daughters. She was a midwife in Davao when we were there. They will be travelling in the coming week to New york and then down to Carmen’s parents and then from there all the way down to Tanzania where they will be part of JAARS. Pray for them for travel mercies as they need to travel very long distances even in the states.

Good news is that some of my friends in South Africa, started up a Motorcar-fund for a new or may I say a newer car. Thank you very much uncle Nico for believing in us. It is a far cry from buying something decent but we are keeping it running for a while to see how much we can raise in order to buy something newer and more reliable. I am feeling sad for my poor mechanic as he really try his best to fix the poor Suzuki. It is now more than 3 months. If you feel you want to contribute a couple of cents, I will leave the details in the bottom or just contact me, thank you. Just something to enjoy while having coffee:
If I do not hear from you again, we hope that you will have a joyful and very graceful and fulfilled Christmas. May God bless you guys this season, out of your socks? Remember that this is a time to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior.
