We took most of Monday to relax and recover from all the hiking and climbing required during a trip to Angkor. In the afternoon, we hired a tuk-tuk to take us to a book store of which we had been told. We found a surprising selection of Bibles, commentaries, dictionaries, tracts and other Christian literature in mostly English, but also in Khmer. It is good to see so much teaching material translated into the native language.
Tuesday, the girls had another opportunity to go to the local orphanage and volunteer some time to work with the children. This orphanage is always in need of volunteers and the children are excited when they get the much-needed attention. Sharon and Siriporn were delighted they could serve in this manor. Then, we all assembled at the Hayes’s home for a singing, prayers and worship with the Wheelers and Nathan’s parents (Dan & Grace) and brother (Bobby), currently teaching in a Bible School in Seoul, South Korea. We had a memorable time worshipping together and sharing some delicious pizza. It was hard to say goodbye – so we didn’t. Instead, we said, “see ya next summer!” And Lord willing, we will!!!
