Watch this space...a transformation is in progress...a Beautiful Foot Spa and Boutique is coming!
The Lord is opening doors for another job creation project. I am opening up a foot spa here in Battambang. It'll be one of a kind...a bit upscale...and hopefully provide jobs for 5 women. Please be praying that the Lord will bring just the right ladies at just the right time. Training will begin May 1st and we hope to open or doors for business June 1st. We will have a soft opening (invitation only the last week of May)
Pretty exciting...stay tuned to see the transformation and to meet the ladies!!!

Last month was huge in the minefield village...not only are the children washing their hands (see earlier post) but our jewelry ladies now have clean water in their homes. We had a few weeks of simple health and hygiene lessons at the end they had the opportunity to build their own biosand water filter.
Three ladies have them up and running in their homes, the others either opted out, or had some other filter already in place. My hope is that all of them will elect to have these in their homes in the near future. (We also put one at the school for the children)
I like these filters for many reasons. First being they are simple to make, they don't require much time or effort. Second all the needed supplies are readily and inexpensively available here in Cambodia.
Lastly if they encounter any trouble with their filters they can easily fix or replace them, they are not dependent on anyone to have a continual supply of clean water in their homes.
We are hopeful that others will see the benefits of clean water and that our ladies will be able to teach others how to make these filters.
We partnered with Water for Life an amazing organization that will continue to partner with us as we move forward.

This couple is learning what it means to follow Jesus. A couple of weeks ago they were given a Bible of their own. It's hard to describe how beautiful it is to read with them. Keep praying for their faith to grow.
