Another busy week of preparing more contracts for upcoming health center work to the north, and implementing our new contracts to the south.
We traveled to Svey Rieng to formally start the work of building latrines, digging wells, building incinerators, and hand wash sinks for schools. We visited one of our schools and feel so bad that there is no latrine for the children. Our contractors arrived later in the afternoon and we were going!! We visited with 6 different principals and expressed our commitment to bring the things they need to the schools.
Monday is Women’s day here, a national holiday. We plan to go to our projects to the north and check on our wells and other improvements on Tuesday and Wednesday. We have so much to do. We wish we could get more done in a day.
Currently, we have been restricted from having church. We hope to be able to resume worship services soon. Today we will meet with the other senior couples in our apartment and administer the Sacrament.
Our week has been split between travel and office work. It really takes a lot of hours to develop the plan, and the contract for each project. We expect to be managing about 18 projects in the next week or so. Less office work, more road trips.
Our time here is so rewarding. We love Cambodia. We love the people. We miss our family. With all of our love.
