Just a few of the beautiful children of the Cambodian countryside

Sharon enjoyed another great day helping Troy and Tabitha Snowbarger work with the children out in the villages.  The day was spent much like her previous trip helping the children with the Book Club and then allowing them to spend their “chicken money” to purchase a variety of items.

Something new about today’s items for sale – RICE!  This time of the year the rice crop is between planting and harvest.  Last year’s harvest is nearly gone which causes the price of rice to rise to a cost that is unaffordable for many.  The children in the villages had requested the option to purchase rice with their “chicken money.”  These families are very poor and their sweet kids are using their “play money” in such a responsible way to help their families have food!   What a responsibility for these youngsters to take-on.  It is exciting to see them learn at such a young age what Jesus has taught, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35
