Then the ones who pleased the Lord will ask, "When did we give you something to eat or drink? When did we welcome you as a stranger or give you clothes to wear or visit you while you were sick or in jail?"
The King will answer, "Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me." .......Matthew 25

Fishing Village @ Boeung Rial #3 - temporary school

While waiting for the school to be built, the pastors have set up a temporary structure, making use of the tentage we had provided them before, for a part time school. A teacher comes in 3 times a week to take simple classes. The teacher's salary has been sponsored by private funds.

It was a very heartening sight to behold, and I was actually very excited by what I saw. What was especially heartening was the sight of mothers carrying babies, sitting with the children listening attentively to the classes and learning alongside the children. There is no surer way of getting the children interested in schooling than if the mother learns alongside.

Three generations of illiteracy is surely coming to an end.

Beautiful little girl. Smart too. Her name is Rii....or at least that was what it sounded like.
