Today in Phnom Penh, we’re teaching “Why are foreigners so strange?”

Today, we’ll be working and teaching at a youth outreach program in Phnom Penh. The ministry is called MorningStar. They run daily programs for kids from 5 to 21 years old. We’ll be teaching an English lesson, a lesson on how to make “pizza bread” and a class called “Why are foreigners so strange?” as an introduction to cross-cultural communication and mission.
Cambodia has a part to play in God’s plan for the nations.

We are the foreigners and we are strange.

I just took this photo from my seat at a coffee shop. This boy and girl were flirting with each other.

Today in Phnom Penh, we’ll teach “How to Make Bread and Enjoy God”

It’s Monday morning in Phnom Penh, Cambodia – the start of our second full day here.
Today, we’ll be teaching at a ministry that houses and disciples Cambodian students. It functions like a house church and ministry training program.
We’ll be teaching an English, bread making and theology lesson called “How to Make Bread and Enjoy God”.
The ministry makes and sells snack foods to help cover its expenses. We’ll be teaching how to make a couple snack foods that they can sell.

Yesterday, we spent a few hours with the World Horizons team that lives here. There are about 18 people on the team. They have people from England, Ireland, France, Indonesia, Canada and the U.S. It’s a great group of people. They’re leading ministries for orphan care, church planting, art as mission, business as mission, ministry and discipleship training and after school youth outreach. I’m glad to spend some time supporting them.

This is where I’m sitting right now. Its nice.

Sunday Morning in Phnom Penh

It’s Sunday morning in Phnom Penh.
This week I’m traveling with my friend Jon (he lives here in Cambodia), Aleesa (she’s an American member of our organization who lives in Mexico and will join us on Tuesday) and Hope (she’s an American from Virginia who has been on a mission trip to Cambodia before).
We’re staying at a guest house/hotel. It’s pretty decent and has air conditioning.
Today, we’ll have lunch with the World Horizons team that lives here, then we’ll go to a church that meets in the afternoon.

Here’s Jon with an inflatable Josh Conrad.
