Sroun's wound - that is Aussie Kaye's hand. Kaye is a district nurse visiting Cambodia and she spent nearly a morning gently cutting away dead skin from Sroun's backside.
We are privileged and glad to be in Cambodia. The most difficult part is missing family, especially our amazing mum's and our awesome kids. Skype phone calls are easy and great and certainly help bridge the gap, but there is a big tug on our hearts when one of our mum's is so ill.
Our decision is to come to NZ after our daughter Melody's marriage to Dave on September 20. Their marriage is in Queensland and we are so excited about our 'baby' becoming a bride and connecting with family and friends for the occasion - both from Toowoomba and NZ. We fly to Aussie in two weeks time and get some time back in Toowoomba before folk begin gathering on the Sunshine Coast.
After the wedding we will return to New Plymouth for three weeks family time. We know that the Healing Home is very young and that 5 weeks absence is a big ask. So, we are asking big and seeing amazing answers of people stepping up to help. Much more needs to be nailed down but of this we are confident - the Healing Home is in the heart of God and He will provide every necessary person.
