A trip up North : )

the Ladies from Okinawa here for a short term mission trip
They are from our Cadence Hospitality House, the Harbor

The ice cream man in a province close by..notice the recycle truck
in the background...his truck was full of plastic water bottles.

catching a ride with mom

this sweet lady liked the jump rope : )

the Cambodia traditional scarf (kromah) worn by a sweet military wife

So glad to see her smile, the first day of ministry she couldn't keep the tears from coming.
Day 2 she said she was doing much better.  She asked us to pray for her situation with her husband. 
I look forward to getting to know her better in the future.

(pictures were not taken by me...borrowed from the team from Okinawa : )

A few more glimpses of Cambodia...
A rainy Tuk Tuk ride

my neighbor ; )

This past weekend a Cadence group from Okinawa, Japan ministered at one of our Military Camps.   They allowed me to join them.  I will share more about that time soon.  Suffice it to say it was great to be with the women!!!

This trip allowed me to experience some firsts...My first time out of the city since moving here.  I was able to take some breaths of fresh air.  My ears were able to rest from the constant barrage of noise.  One night all I heard were crickets! : )

On the drive up, our driver decided that we needed to experience the road side corn on the cob stand.  So a sweet little lady sold us 10 ears for $1...all cooked in their husks and ready to eat.  It was a tasty treat.r

I also experienced my first Cambodian bus ride.  Which was all in all a pleasant experience.  Had the young man in front of us turned down his cell phone ringer, it might have been more peaceful, but if I had slept I would have missed some of the scenery. ( A few window shots are below).

It was great to get out of the city...great to be doing some ministry with the military and great to have a team in town. : )

a visit to the country...love these guys!

The bus ride home...planting rice

rice fields and palm trees...beautiful!
