Life in Cambodia is never boring (Joyce)
- I was stuck in a small traffic kerfuffle near our home caused by a cow on the roadI had sweat stains on the front of my shirt—not from strenuous physical activity, but from teaching bible in my classroom (100 °F + all week). Power was out for 7 hours straight one day.
- The motodop (motorcycle taxi) I was on the back of ran out of gas at one of the major intersections of Phnom Penh at high noon
- Violent rain storm flooded our third floor because of poor drainage on a small balcony.The road in front of our house peaked at about 6 inches of standing water
- Phnom Penh was listed as the fourth worst world city to live in according to smartplanet.com
- Our shower stall, oven door, and motorcycle all needed repair—occasioned, I believe, by wear and tear of the humid, harsh and dirty environment and poor quality of fixtures and fittings
- I felt like some lights went on in the students when we discussed heaven in Grade 10 Bible class.
- I was able to encourage a Cambodian colleague who started as a teacher’s assistant this week.
- I heard that Women’s program plans to use materials that I created for small groups at the annual national Women’s conference this year.
- I took time to re-assess my calling and ministry and was affirmed in what I am doing.
- The Suh kids dominated at the final city-wide international school swim meet of the season.
- Who cares about ratings? We love it here and feel privileged and blessed to serve in Cambodia
