We've been juggling a few things these last few weeks. Good friends Antonie and Jenny Eggink blew in from India (7 weeks) and Burma (1 week) for 10 days recently, so there has been lots of discussions and leg-pulling. Then there has been the settling into a rhythm of life in the new Healing Home. It must be busier - we used to take an average of 19-21 days to go thru' a 50kg bag of rice. We've been thru' two bags in these last 23 days.
Staff God-time at the beginning of the day. We use upstairs - a great, open area where we've made a staff worship and prayer nook.
It is interesting how different people respond to being cared for in Jesus name. Yun and his wife arrived recently after being scraped off the road. Wifey had a broken collar-bone; Yun had full concussion in his helmet-less head and a decent amount of stitches in his leg. He was a sick boy, wretching with the slightest movement.
Yun seemed a bit of a hard fella. I should have learned by now - so often, these are the softies with defence turned on. I noticed the other day how he, above anyone, locked into the devotion that Sypho shared. He's healed up incredibly fast and gone already - excellent excellent. I'm persuaded that his time with us has been a God-designed stepping stone.

Out to it - Sreynoone is undergoing a course of radiotherapy. It is wiping the poor little chicken out, but she is plucky as.
Donnie is due to bring a couple of new people in tomorrow. He's been up north in Battambang. Fortunately we've had a wave of people head out over the last two days. Sopheap is in charge - Sue and I head out to Burma in the morning for 10 days. We're among the fine people we were with last year, teaching in two or three pastors gatherings. What an amazing life God has given us out here!
Ahh, that everyone would have this level of wisdom ...
