Ever since I've moved here, I have been wanting to visit the temple on the hill behind our home. I can see its brightly colored peak from our kitchen and was intrigued by the prospect of an adventure to check it out. Last Saturday I laced up my Merrells and had at it and I definitely wasn't disappointed. Here are a few sights along the way.
|The view from the top. I love being able to see the ocean and small islands.|
|The picture is blurry because I was in a hurry- come to find out, monkeys are NOT nice.|
|Don't mess with this guy|
|JOY. The most beautiful thing I've seen here.|
|My smiley little friend :)|
|Hiking home after a long day of prayer|
|They enjoyed seeing their faces on my digital camera|
It's so nice to venture out into our neighborhood and away from the Life University complex. I love seeing my neighbors despite the fact I can't do much more than smile and wave.
When I first decided to come here, a lot of friends and even a few family members tried to talk me out of it. It's true, Cambodia has a violent, horrific past. It still is a developing country with more than its share of problems; but despite it all, there's hope and joy in the faces of the people. I thank God every morning for letting me be a part of the wonderful things he is doing in this country.
