Our week was spectacular! We traveled on Monday to our large water project at the Prevang Hospital and met with the Hospital Director to review the high points of the project and to get his commitment to take care of some items before we begin. We moved on that day to inspect a health center and a school that very much need water facilities. Currently the health center is pulling water from a very murky pond. We are putting these two groups onto our list of folks to help.
We spent the next two days with contractors looking at health centers that need water, incinerators and hand wash. Truly, there is need far away from the city. We admire the tenacity of the people to ‘make do’, even when there is not much to ‘make do’ with. Thursday we updated on the nearby project to drill a well at a local health center. We are pleased with our contractors for their creativity and hard work.
Friday brought us the opportunity to meet together with the senior missionary team at the mission home, to have dinner, and to say farewell to one of the wonderful senior missionary couples. Dr and Sister Jim Taylor, our friends from Brigham City. As they complete there mission, we say good bye to them for the hard work and commitment to the people of Cambodia; We will miss them indeed.
Today, we enjoyed another baptism, and then joined a committee in the North Stake in planning a missionary reunion. The stake has over 100 missionaries who have served. The stake is anxious to assemble together and enjoy the missionary spirit together. Tonight, in just a few hours, we will join an area leadership training. Our weeks speed by and we find ourselves worn out each day.
As we drive the many hours to the provinces, we think of our children and grandchildren. You are in our prayers every day. We love you… We love you… We truly love you. We feel the prayers of so many here. The Lord blesses us every day. We see His hand in our lives. We think it is because of your prayers and faith on our behalf. Thank you! May God grant you blessings. May you realize His blessings in your lives.
