We all be Like Pruny Raisins

This week has been a whirlwind of busyness! In addition to our morning classes from 7:30-11:30 am, we now teach swim lessons at Logos from 1-4 pm, Monday through Friday, this past week and next week. The kids range from very, very young to teenagers. Most of them don’t speak English, so it’s been a bit difficult to teach them swimming techniques. It has been a good challenge, but we have been learning the value of words given that we can’t communicate with them. We have put emphasis on communicating with nonverbal cues. We’ve also learned several words in Khmer (arm, leg, straight) to help us. Please pray for patience and that the students continue to learn quickly. And for energy! Boy, do we need to keep up our energy because the kids are balls of energy.

We are also now leading a VBS (with help from the other summer school teachers) three times a week, from 5:30-6:30 pm. There are a total of about 230 kids broken up into three groups. This past week, we taught on Monday, Wednesday, and today (Thursday). So far, we have taught about Noah, Jonah, and Daniel. The kids have enjoyed the stories, crafts, and games we have prepared. We are VERY thankful for the help of the other teachers, as we are exhausted by this point of the day. Due to our exhaustion in the past week, most of our immune systems are faulty at this time. Thankfully, we do not have school tomorrow (due to a holiday), so hopefully we can catch up on sleep and recover. Please pray  for rest, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well, as we begin our final week in Cambodia.
