Introducing our friends

Well, here are some of our new friends. We're getting to know a few names, and loving spending time with the children. The pictures are of some of the younger children at the orphanage. There are 48 here altogether. Yesterday, Saturday, we spent time doing games with these kids. Today, we went to, and took part in, their church service. Obviously, we didn't understand a whole lot of what happened in the two hour service (you thin Rev J is long, you should hear these guys!!), but it was great to see the level of enthusiasm that the children have for worship.

The next few days are going to be very busy. Moving house, teaching English, music, craft, computers, etc. We are looking forward to this work. We also will be doing some more work with John and Ann Turner. Jonny is going to try to help John set up a computer room in their centre. John will offer free computer classes and, in doing so, encouraging them to come to church.

The computers for Care for Cambodia still haven't arrived and we're still having problems with documentation to evade taxes. The staff here are working hard to get this remedied, but it is a very slow process. We may have to make a decision about paying the taxes after all. We need to be wise about how we can best use money to best serve the needs of the children here.

Jonny and big hugs!
