Visiting Poor Countries – 09/01/10
Many people come to visit Cambodia knowing it is one of the poorest countries on earth. However, I’m not sure their prepared for the experience because seeing it first hand is a whole different thing.
Everywhere one travels around the country they see similar conditions. We see people with no sanitation, no reliable water source, little or no health care, and very few opportunities for education. This experience really makes me aware of how richly I am blessed to have grown up in a western country. There are so many people in the world living without the things we take for granted each and every day.
The last two years have changed our lives. We are so grateful for the ways God has blessed us over and above what we need. We pray you take a moment and think about the luxurious and privileged life each of us enjoys and give thanks to God.
