After that we went to watch a movie but found out there was nothing we wanted to see on and so sat around and talked. Came home and off to movie night! Amazing how popcorn and candy can fill you up and wake you up enough to stay awake for a little bit at least!
Came home actually tired and stayed reading.
Saturday we decided to go out and do stuff with a plan. So went to Toul Sleng - the genocide museum and then the russian market. Found a lot of stuff there that I didn't even know I wanted. Probably bought more than I have in the entire time in one shot that day! We started to eat and ended up talking and not making it to the killing fields. I have been to Toul Sleng 3 times but it always gets me. The horrible things that people can do to each other is incredible.
Then we were off to a massage. I was going to try something new - aromatherapy massage, cause they are so cheap, but the oil had no smell and I changed it to a cheaper safer and known massage :) Michael called while we were there and joined us for dinner. He had wanted me to interview his cousin. :) but she has a great job and so we ate dinner and went over to friends house.
Came home exhausted but I ended up staying up till 2-3am, reading and chatting with various people.
Sunday we went to church. It was great! Really spoke to both of us a lot. Even worships as great although I don't usually like the worship team. I thought we would have to leave church early but it ended early and so we had time to shop for groceries and come home in time for the medical students. But while they were there Michael called saying he had someone for me to meet who wants to volunteer in the future. So had to make a quick pad thai(which brenda actually loved although she has been avoiding my food the last few days in fear it will suck) and we were off. I had a 5:30 lunch date so given how late it was we decided to head into the city since we were already 1/2 way there. Saw Wat Phnom and then it looked stormy and so didn't quite make it to cover and it started to rain. We ducked into an open gate under a shed with a bunch of men. Any other country we would have felt awkward and a little scared, but these guys gave us chairs to sit on :) after that we were off to eat. While eating a fireworks show went off across the river and what a cool unexpected beautiful site it was! My friend didn't show till 8 but we were glad we got to spend an hour with her since she really needed it. Got home around 9:30 tired and exhausted but of course had to read.
Woke up this morning for class. It was great, our first day at the new place and it worked grew! Michael was at an interview so just had me and brenda and while I was still finishing the medical students came asking me to go with them to the province we are going tomorrow cause we needed official permission from the chief there. So despite my plan to get caught up, off I was on a back of a motorcycle for 2 hours. But praise God at least the weather wasn't boiling hot.
Got back in time to take Brenda home from the cafe. Poor girl was dying and made a quick lunch and just finished it and got to talk on the phone briefly before running over to teach. I had given Michael the afternoon off cause he worked in a medical camp on weekend. Finally done with class, which was great! B comes to both and I really love how well he is doing!
God is great!
