Guess what? I get to have dance parties with my roommates. It’s awesome. Just thought I’d share that.
Anyways, this week has been chopped full of wonderful spiritual goodies!
I love Sunday’s here. I have to get up ridiculously early and spend all day in a hot and sweaty building, but oh man, it’s so worth it. Spending all day with those children is wonderful. I got to have a water fight with them. Two of us against 12 of them. So much fun. This is what your donated dollars are going to. Be proud :D
And then I got sick. It sucked. But I kicked that cold/sore throat in the butt, got rid of it in two days. Yes, my immune system is super man.
So, Tuesday, my team went on a prayer walk around the city. I had to miss out on that due to being el sicko, but I prayed from my hotel room.
Wednesday, us morning crew people were hanging out after our bible study with the girls,when Sothea came up to us. There was a couple who just came home with thei brand new baby (barely five pounds/ 2 and a half kilos) that were being terrorized by demonic forces at night. The wife would wake up to dark figures around her and her baby. So we went over to their house and prayed over the house, the baby and his parents. It was so great to kick Satan in the teeth. I kid you not. The next day, Sothea reported to us that they had a peacful sleep with no demons terrorizeing them. Yay Jesus :)
Later in the afternoon we did some street ministry. A lot of Cambodians generally have rotten teeth because they can’t afford the dentist, nor can they afford toothbrushes (particularly those in the slums). So we went into the slums and handed out toothbrushes. These beautiful people were so grateful for a freaking toothbrush, it hit me hard. Later on, we had just handed out our last toothbrush. We passed by an old lady on the side of the road begging for food/money. The Holy Spirit spoke to me, ‘go buy her something to eat.’ So my group and I went to a cafe, I got some steamed rice and veggies. As we were walking back to her, I was praying along the way that she would still be there. And lo and behold, there she was, in the exact same spot. That old and wrinkly and beautiful woman was so thankful for something to eat, once again, Jesus floored me. Over and over God just continues to let my jaw hit the floor. For example, another group of our team walked by her later that day and handed her a toothbrush.
Want proof that Jesus came for the humble? There you have it.
Thursday we finally went back to the orphanage we visited a month ago. It was so great. It helps me look forward to our last month in Phnom Penh, when we’ll be working at an orphanage.
So my team leaves for Siem Reap tomorrow morning! We’ll be there for debrief, to check in with AIM, and to see Angkor Wat. So stoked outta my brain cells!
Aaaand I’ll be starting my October video soon, so stay tuned, it’ll be up in a few weeks, hopefully :)
P.S. Our hotel is near a crocodile farm. So cool. But we are also next to a couple of night clubs. Every night we see girls who work there sitting outside waiting to be picked up by a client for the night. Please keep them covered in prayer.
Y’all come back now ya hear?!
I’m Canadian, I promise.
