TAKE A PEEK: OUR RIDE TO CHURCH

We shared with many of you while we were in the States that our partners, the Cambodia Baptist Union, recently completed a multi-purpose building. We are really excited for them about this accomplishment, and we are looking forward to seeing all the new things that will happen in this space. The church we go to now meets in this building.

The building is a good ways outside the city center, and we thought you might like to take a peek at our ride there. We travel by tuk tuk, and it takes about 40 minutes to get there. It's a bit of a bumpy ride, but it actually feels great to get outside the city for a bit.

 On our way out of the city

Outside the city after a huge downpour. Church is in the late afternoon, and during rainy season, that's the most common time for showers. It's rained on us 3 out of 4 weeks on our way to church, but we stay mostly dry in the tuktuk. 

Rice fields and palm trees are quintessentially Cambodian, but we rarely see them in our day-to-day life. 

And finally, this is the view from the CBU building with lotus plants in bloom. Our Sundays now give our lives some much needed green!
