We’ve often heard it said that you should have a childlike faith….recently there was an incident that really showed what can happen when you have faith of a child. Maly, one of our friends that helps mom out with the cleaning and cooking three times a week, has two cute daughters. She lost her husband 5 years ago in a moto accident. Her youngest daughter Nita, has been wanting a bike to go to school with for quite some time. However, her mom always told her she didn’t have enough money to buy one. So Nita decided that since her mom didn’t have the money for one, she would start praying for one. When she went to church, she would ask her Sunday school teacher to pray for her to be able to get a bike. And then a couple of weeks ago someone gave $100 to ALAM and specified that the money should be given to Maly. Needless to say, Maly was astonished when she got the money, and with that money Nita got the bike she had always wanted.
We recently got an adorable little moustached parakeet and the cutest little parrot from some people in one of the villages.
James and Ruth Mullet arrived on the 28th. They came to replace Elton’s for about a month after Elton’s leave. We always enjoy extra people around.
This last week has been a lot of fun. Mose Clemmer and Wendell Bauman, two of the guys that were in Canada last summer with my brothers, decided to globetrot Asia. And since they were in our area, they decided to come visit the boys. They got here Monday evening. We had supper, and then the kids watched the sky to see if they could find the airplane that was to bring my aunt and uncle. Dad pointed it out to them, then after a while they headed for the airport to pick them up. Tuesday they all headed out to the fishing village. They decided to go rat hunting and I think the guys thoroughly enjoyed that. The next day the Ryan and Austin took the guys drilling with them, and Mom and Dad took Wade and Rosy to Angkor Wat. After they were done there they went to the Landmine Museum. Thursday Dad and Mom took Wade’s and James’ to Brealingeang (a village way out in the country). From what I gathered, they all enjoyed that. The following day was Wade’s last day here. Dad took Wade to watch the guys drill, then after lunch Dad and Mom took Wade’s to the Silk Farm. We were all sad to say goodbye late that afternoon. We had our traditional Friday meal of Grilled chicken and cornbread with gravy. Saturday morning all the guys decided to go the reservoir. When they came back, we pulled out some stuff for sandwiches. After lunch, Mose and Wendell hurried off to airport and catch their plane to India. Sorry for the lack of pictures…
We are all looking forward to having two of our cousins with us these next few weeks. I will try to get lots of pictures of that for y’all. Until next time, Heather
