Is This Really The End?

19 June 2010 29 Comments

Our last month of ministry.

That concept was hard enough for me to wrap my mind around when we started ministry in Cambodia.

And now, 30 days later, our month of ministry is now over.

That idea is even harder for me to comprehend.

Not only has our time in Cambodia flown by, but when I think back over this race, it seriously feels like I’ve only been gone a month.

I could not imagine a better way to finish our time of ministry.  We had an excellent placement this month.  We have been in Kampong Cham, one of the biggest cities in Cambodia teaching English.  Our contact was an incredible woman named Cecil, from the Philippines.  She works with YWAM and runs a Youth Development Center here.  She, along with five other amazing women, teach English every day to the students here, many of which are Buddhist and Muslim.  I really loved our time here.  My team got to teach English classes and give the girls a break.  This is my second time teaching English in Asia, and I fell in love with it all over again.  In January of 2009 I got to teach English in South Korea for a while.  I loved it so much, and I am so honored to be back in Asia teaching again.  I love forming relationships with the students, and helping them develop their English skills.  Because the Development Center is run by missionaries, English is just an entry-way into these student’s lives.  The teachers really strive to disciple and encourage the students to a faith in Jesus.  It was amazing to hear the Gospel presented to our students, and watch them really accept the truths of Jesus Christ.

We also got a chance to tour this beautiful city and spend time with the villagers here.  One day, Martha and I took our bikes to the river and just rode around.  We came upon a sweet little village made of cardboard and tin sheets.  Instantly we were accepted in and all of the children started posing for our cameras.  I am really going to miss being able to walk up to any community and be instantly accepted.

This month has been amazing to get to pour out into the people here.  It has been filled with lots of great times with my wonderful “Phene Girls” and has given us a chance to truly begin processing the end of this race.

…And did I mention we had BIKES this whole month 🙂

And now we are leaving tomorrow morning….We have just over a week left on the race.  The next few days will be filled with lots of reminiscing, tons of laughing, filled with memories, and certainly a lot of tears.  I am really going to miss this incredible group of people that the Lord has brought into my life.  I am so thankful for the wonderful experience.  And I am still in awe of all the amazing things I saw God do around the world this year
Thank you so much to all of you who supported me throughout this journey!  Not only has it been the missions trip of a lifetime, but I truly feel like it is a launching pad into my next step of ministry.  I want each of you to know that I would not be here today if it were not through all of your prayers and encouragement.  To my amazing supporters back home:  Thank you so much!  I hope you know how many lives you have changed this year (If not, then go back and read a few of my Africa blogs, and know that you are making a HUGE impact on the world).  I can’t wait to tell you all stories in person when I get home.  I am looking forward to lots of hugs, tons of quality time, and certainly endless amounts of Starbucks Coffee.

Until then, I am going to try to soak up these next 9 days as best as I can, and continually live in the moment – the amazing little moments that God gives us every day!

    Okay that teal bike is sweet! I am a little jealous. I may have to find me one with a basket…. 😉

    What an amazing journey you have been on. I can hardly believe it is coming to a close for you. Soak up these last 9 days with the people you have journeyed with….enjoy every last moment.

    Praying the coming days are sweet and full of joy and shared memories…tears and lots of laughter.

    We miss you.

    Love you.

    What an incredible journey you have had! Thank you for giving of yourself this year for the kingdom.

    I smile when I think of all of the lifelong friendships that you have made and how the Lord knew exactly what you needed to help support you as you gave to others. I will be praying for the big transition home. While I know you are so excited to be seeing everyone again….I also know that the transition could be difficult getting back into the “American Way”.

    I love and miss you so very much and can not wait for coffee and a long chats with my precious daughter…
