Why We Haven't Been Writing Much . . .

The short story is that we have been busy.  Here are a few highlights from the last four weeks . . . ok, it's actually been more like six weeks . . . well, honestly I think it's been more like eight, but who's counting, right?

 Thank you everyone who helped us get this car!  It's made a huge difference in our lives here.  In February we went to Battambang for teacher training.  This picture is from that trip.

 The two of us with Sarorn - a student that we have known since our first trip in 2011.  She was in jr. high school then. Now she's in nursing school. We were able to help her find funding for this semester, her last before she is officially a nurse!  She has a huge heart for serving her community, in a province in the south, particularly in providing care to women and children in need.

 There have been plenty of opportunities to serve through photography too - local young professionals, expats, and Logos students.  Next year Kirsten will continue to do this type of work but also will take on an official role as high school photography teacher at Logos.  Just one class, three days a week, which will still allow time for service in these other areas.

 A mango season gift from one of the Cambodian staff members, Phalla.  She presented this mango art and then asked, "Is your heart full?"  :)

 Shelby is not without a ministry role of her own.  She is a point of conversation, and sometimes a little trepidation, but always makes friends in the end.  Who would have ever thought a beagle would be such a big hit in Cambodia?!  She preaches the gospel in her own loving way - or at least she tries.
