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

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

Tags: Cambodia, dump
Well, yesterday was interesting, to put it mildly & I’m still trying to process it this morning. I’m very intent to find ways here that saving Moses can help infants & moms w really young kids (the 5 & under crowd). Yesterday we went to visit a trash dump & it was a pretty strong experience for me. To begin, we walked through alot of the dump to find the homes where everyone lives. While we were walking, I thought I was stepping on solid trash, but actually fell through into some like sewage & was stuck there for a little while. It made me think of the trash compactor scene in star wars & I was hoping nothing was alive under the surface. I got myself out of that stuff & we kept walking, paying better attention to where we were stepping.
We finally came to the “home area” where hundreds of people were using whatever trash they could find from the dump to make “homes.”. We came up to one of the homes & there were about 10 people, including lots of kids, living in this one rice bag kind of hut. A mom came out & started talking w us. She explained that she has 3 kids & I saw that she was prego & asked when she thought she would deliver – next month. She’s planning to give birth at the dump bc it costs about $50 to deliver at a hospital & they only make $1 / day from their recycling work.
As we continued to walk around I could see from the extreme poverty how vulnerable the people are – many of them doing absolutely anything to stay alive (prostitution, trafficking, drugs, anything). They are literally in the edge, the fringes of survival w virtually no help available. So I find myself asking Jesus what He would have me do. I’ll keep you posted on this.
Today, we have gone out into the countryside to explore more opportunities for saving Moses. It’s extremely important to go into the countryside in Cambodia bc 80% of the population in this nation is rural. So we’ll see what God has for us today. Thanks loads for praying!! I find myself trying to process this trip & kind of struggling w this right now.
