Day 8 – Thursday, June 14, 2007

Cambodain National Museum            Niak sohk sahp-bahy dteh?  That is Cambodian for “how are you”?  And we pray that you all are doing well.  We are eager to learn the language and have been getting some tips; however, we have a long ways to go!  After three glorious days of teaching God’s word at CBI and fellowshipping with the students we were off to learn more history and culture of the Khmer.  Today we began at the National Museum of Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts where we learned more about the Cambodian’s past, their religion, and their culture.

Wat Phnom, Phnom Penh, Cambodia            Later, we went to a place called Wat Phnom, a beautiful park setting, but sadly an area know and recognized for the worship of Buddha and other “spirits.”  We were amazed as we saw so many of the locals and what appeared to be visitors making offerings and bowing down to idols made of stone.  How we long for them to have the joy of Jesus Christ and put their hope, faith and trust in GOD.

Tea Poa Heng Khmer Cafe            We were all ready to enjoy supper after we returned, so we set out looking for a new place to eat.  After stopping and checking out the menus of several restaurants we finally decided it was time to join the Cambodians for some authentic Khmer food.  We found a local café “Tea Poa Heng” and ate some of the best food yet in Cambodia.  We were all smiling and finding joy as we sat among the people of Cambodia and talked about this being our future home.
