I told Breanna, "I don't know why that phrase makes me feel so happy!"
She laughed, "It SHOULD make you happy!"
We spent the day and night at an orphanage for abandoned children--kids who were living on the streets and kids whose parents didn't want them. The children attend school on site--It's a Christian school/orphanage run by caring adults who show the love of Christ and parental love to these precious children. We played with them and put on a kids' event for them--singing songs, playing games, giving out bracelets and dresses.
We are all here! It was a LONG flight--13 1/2 hours to Seoul! Then another 5 1/2 to Cambodia. We missed a day but we'll get it back on our way home--I think.
We left the snow in Korea and found the heat an humidity in Cambodia.
We met up with Holly C, Kim, Pam and Diane at the airport and traveled to the hotel together. We were really tired until we discovered they have internet at the hotel. The other two team members from California were already here and in bed so we will meet them at breakfast.
This morning the alarm went off at 3AM!! I sat in bed waiting for my husband Robert to bring me a cup of coffee. I was feeling a little sad because I hate to leave my family. AND my sister Joan and her husband are here and I know I'm going to miss out on LOTS of family activities!
I checked out face book and my friend Angie had posted this picture on my page.
I'm so looking forward to this mission. I know it's going to be awesome and that God has gone ahead and prepared the path for us.
The downside is leaving my Roberto and my family :( That is always hard.
But I know that God holds them in the palm of His hand and He will watch over them and me.
Please keep us all in your prayers.
My Goddaughter Breanna and I will be joining six other women in Phnom Pehn, Cambodia on February 11th. From there we will travel to the OM ship and will be distributing dresses made by Dress a Girl Around the World. We are all so excited about this trip.
I'm so honored--not only to represent all of the women who made dresses for this mission--but this will be the first mission trip my Goddaughter and niece have experienced together. She and I will both be blogging here during the trip as well as posting our photos on the Media page.
Logos Hope is a ship that carries missionaries around the world. It will be docked in Cambodia and our dress a girl team will live on the ship for 8 days --we will be going out to villages dressing girls and will also teach women to sew.
