!We just finished around 24 hours of travel, plus or minus so I’m a little hazy around the edges
We are here for a week, combining our church mission trip & some Saving Moses work I need to do with our nightcare efforts, so this will be a really cool trip! My family is with me, so that’s a HUGE bonus!
Here are some helpful travel trips when you going for long hours &/or multiple time zones:
*drink lots of water – airplanes can be very dehydrating
*be flexible – dont expect things to be like they are at home
*stay positive – nothing ruins a trip faster than complaining
*look for opportunities to meet new people & be a blessing, within the framework of your travel host / sched
Be sure to check back with me lots this week as I’m planning to do lots of updates with our Saving Moses work!
This upcoming week, I’m WAY EXCITED because I get to visit our first nightcare facility in Cambodia with Saving Moses!! We’ve been running our nightcare program now for a little over a year & I’m so excited about our growth and our future opportunities – WAY EXCITED!! If you’re not familiar with nightcare with Saving Moses, this is where we provide care during the evening & night for the babies of prostitutes while their moms work. Nightcare for these babies meets a very urgent need for because there’s no viable care available for them while their moms are working. Over the past year, we’ve grown and matured so I’m crazy excited to return to Cambodia next week, visit our babies and look into the possibilities of even expanding and opening a new facility. So follow me on this really cool journey and let’s see what genuine love looks like for Saving Moses in the form of nightcare

I’ve traveled quite a bit in my life & when I go overseas, it feels pretty seamless to me. So when I get to travel with people who have never been out of the country, it’s always interesting to get to watch their reactions & observations. What I’ve found to be super powerful is to watch my various friends who go with me on Saving Moses trips to see how God opens their eyes & changes them. With this in mind, please check out this link of one of our video guys to get his insights on our trip to Cambodia last month: Lance Goes to Cambodia
Here are some cool faces that we’ve seen & met today
Check out this insightful video I captured last week:

We are finishing our time in Cambodia & this has been a really amazing trip. It is absolutely fantastic to watch God’s hands move, organize, facilitate & connect. I’ve met some very incredible people, being used by God in many different, life-changing ways. I have to say that whenever I leave this country, I’m always captivated by the people here – such grace, poise, warmth, care & love.
In relation to saving Moses, it looks like we have some really good relationships with whom we can move forward over the course of the next few months to begin implementing the plans for nightcare. I’m leaving here feeling very encouraged about the future of nightcare w saving Moses in Cambodia. I’ll keep you posted on our progress here as I anticipate to seeing nightcare getting launched possibly by the end of this year
God takes the definition of “good” and puts His “infinite & extreme” stamp on the human expression of “good”.

Do you ever get on a mission about something? Recently, I lost my wallet so I was on a mission to find it – I checked the car, my backpack, purse, couch cushions, kitchen counter, . . . asked Reece, asked my kids, . . . . you get the picture. As I was searching, I was shooting up some quick prayers, asking for some divine help & sure enough, I lifted up a towel in the laundry room & voila, the lost was found. Needless to say, I was really relieved – but my point is that I was on a mission to find my wallet.
This summer, my husband & I are on 2 missions: he’s going to Haiti & I’m going to Cambodia for @savingmoses. Truthfully, we’re a big missions family – its important to us for lots of different reasons. As such, we adjust our time, energies & moneys to reflect our commitment to missions. Over the next 2 weeks, I’m planning to blog during my travels & hopefully, give you some really cool insights, perspectives, etc related to being on a mission. So keep your eyes peeled & if you’re inclined, please don’t fight the urge to subscribe to my blog, using the RSS feeder to the right – much easier than coming back to look for updates

I’m sitting in the Phnom Penh airport (Cambodia) waiting for my flt to China. I totally love this country & the people here. They are simply amazing. I love getting to see what God is doing here & exploring the opportunities to minister w God’s tangible love. I’m pretty excited about saving Moses getting launched here & how God will continue to expand our abilities. Whenever I leave Cambodia, I’m always overflowing in my heart w Gods love for the people here. It makes it difficult to leave.
But soon, I’ll get on the plane to China, another place I love. Today, I’ll join mom & our team to explore Gods power & love in this great country. Appreciate all of your thoughts & prayers!
So today we visited a village in the countryside & I got to meet some completely beautiful & strong women. I met a grandma who survived the Khmer rouge regime by hiding in the jungle for 2 yrs. Her husband was the only person to survive in his family during the Khmer Rouge. I met a mom who is 5mnths pregnant, but very scared to deliver bc of the complications from her preceding deliveries & no resources to get medical help w her delivery. I met lots of little people who need toothbrushes bc their teeth are rotting out of their heads from eating the sweet syrup from the palm trees. Finally, I met a single mom of 5 kids whose husband abandoned his family 3 yrs ago. Her sole means to provide for her kids is to sell desserts to her village & surrounding areas. This is an amazing country & the people here never fail to grab my heart
