This summer we will be serving in Cambodia in a school. We will be teaching English, Math, Science, Writing, and Bible stories. We have 8 classes a day with students who are very eager to learn. We are also building relationships with other school workers and students who live in dorms near us.  We hope to do a study with them soon. On Sundays we will spend the mornings in local villages doing Bible stories with the kids there and in the afternoon we will spend time in worship and fellowship with local Khmer people. We are loving our time here so far and look forward to all the new experiences and adventures ahead.
