Post Cambodia - Days 1-5

It's hard to sum up into words what the past 12 days have been for me. God has grown me and taught me more than I could have ever imagined in just 12 days. If you want to read some detail of all the days we were on the mission field - check out our team blog I am breaking my week into days 1-5 and 6-12. Below is the first half of my trip. Enjoy!

I will try to sum up my experience through pictures since I think that's the best way.

Day 1 and 2: We arrive in Phnom Penh after over 24 hours of traveling. Personally, I was very tired since I hadn't slept yet.

Day 3: We tour the city, see the church, and attend a wedding! Seeing the Khmer Rouge again was rough. This time it was much harder for me because of how deeply I love the Cambodian people.

Day 4: We head to the BEACH with the kids!!! Had so much fun playing in the water, braiding each others hair, and building sand castles.

 Beautiful shells!
 As a team we all tried the fresh caught and cooked squid. Look at me being adventurous!
Day 5: We spent the morning at the beach playing with the kids. It was such a fun time to all be together. After lunch we loaded up the buses and headed to Battambang. Because of bad weather it took us 10 1/2 hours. So this was a very tiring day!

To be continued....
