Almost home . . .

Thank you for your prayers over the last weeks as I (and my teammates) prepared to leave Poipet. It was busy and stressful, but the work of packing was mixed in with some great times of fellowship with friends and ministry partners. God is good.
The truck that I found to transport my household goods and furniture to Phnom Penh is owned by a man who has worked for the mission from time to time in the past. He’s a dependable and trustworthy guy – so that was one less worry. 🙂 I was concerned about rain, as rainy season is just getting started and the truck was not covered, but again God answered prayer and there was no rain during transport and unloading. There was, however, a strong downpour a little later in the day. Praise God for holding off the rain!
I’m now in Phnom Penh finishing up a few things and practicing my city driving. City driving is very different from Poipet country driving. You don’t get stuck in the mud here, but you do get stuck in traffic if you go to the wrong place at the wrong time!!
God is giving me lots of practice as I am driving back and forth from the guesthouse to the hospital where a man from Ang Salaa village is hospitalized. Please pray for Vuet. He was one of the men who had heart surgery (valve replacement) last year. He had some complications with his blood thinner medication and almost died. But God spared his life once again. They are trying to get his blood thinner medication back to the right level, but it is slow going and he is anxious to return home. Pray that he would recover fully and that they are able to stabilize his levels soon.
Tuesday evening (Tuesday morning in PA) I will be getting on the plane to start the trip home. I can’t wait to be back home – and to see many of you! Thank you for being such great partners in the work in Cambodia. I look forward to telling you all about it . . . hopefully, in person!!
