As soon as they left I was on the phone until the girls called and said they wanted to come home. Of course that was my lunchtime, but I got there, got them, bought them ice-cream and came home. They got third place in the tournament. I had 15 minutes left before 1 and so praise God I had some of the vegetable stock left over from the previous days experiment with tom yum soup and so quickly had everything going and the soup was better today than yesterday and I figured out what it was lacking! I forgot something very important! But it was still really good!
The group came and one of the new girls came. We watched the Jesus film. They were really interested after reading the comic and so I thought the movie would be good to see and we went to buy it, but yesterday ended up getting it free when we went to a church to ask if they had English teachers we could hire. :)
At the end we talked about miracles and God’s love for people and I shared how Michael and I met J
As soon as they left I left to meet a stranger. On my way to Koh Kong I was at the bus stop forever and saw this Sikh guy. I don’t always talk to strangers and there were many foreigners there that day and didn’t feel like talking to any of them, but him, for some reason, I really wanted to. So I said hi and started talking. His bus came soon after that and we exchanged emails before he left. When I returned he contacted me and came over for 15 minutes before his flight back to Singapore. I shared a little about what we were doing and he saw the empty center and said he wanted to donate pencils to our school outreach and that his Cambodian based indian female colleague could use a friend. So I contacted her and we met up today. Both our schedules are tight but we worked it out and it was great. I honestly had no plans about talking about God. I was just going to talk about current stuff, our lives, etc and she asked me a question, I just couldn’t answer without starting with how we became Christian. As we talked I could see something was going on in her mind. She then told me how there had been two Christians in her life in India who had told her about Jesus and how she had even prayed at one time and asked for prayer right before she came, but hadn’t been keeping her relationship with God and she is having a tough time with her employees and was thinking about God and then here I was sharing all this. So we went to her apartment and prayed. We’ll be meeting up again in our free-time. But it was great. Interesting how God reached her through this random stranger guy. He’s awesome!!
Came home and hung out with the girls before heading home. Got an early day tomorrow. We leave at 6 for the medical camp! J
