While the guys spent the day preparing lessons, Sharon and Siriporn joined the ladies for a devotional and luncheon graciously hosted by Cheryl Wheeler and Natalie Hayes. The ladies from Partners in Progress (a program teaching English to the Khmer University students using the Bible) joined in the fellowship. Natalie gave the devotional and all enjoyed a wonderful meal and quality time getting to know each other. Afterwards, the ladies went to a gathering at Partners in Progress where they spent time with the Khmer students playing games and getting acquainted. Sharon and Siriporn had a great time practicing the few Khmer words they have learned.
Next, Siriporn and Sharon made a 2nd trip to the Central Market. This time they had an opportunity to walk around and see the variety of items and the vast number of vendors. They had fun and were excited to make it home without having to wade through water. The time the girls had together was uplifting and they are filled with joy to have these opportunities to grow closer.
