School News

Opening week was a success. I am happy with how things turned out. There is some tweaking to do of course, but this is as good a start as I could have hoped for. I have no one but God to thank for that. Our teacher knows how to teach and handle the kids well. Our cook is a very hard worker and the kids love her food. Srai Sim has already begun to meet with the parents to ensure a strong relationship with them, and to ensure continued attendance by their kids. The kids themselves love coming to the school. In fact, although morning class doesn't begin until 7:45am, they are banging on the front gate at 6:30am yelling: "Loak Kroo! Loak Kroo! (Teacher! Teacher!)"

To start we have enrolled forty students but more families have come to us asking to receive their kids also. For now there is only so much we can handle, but I am encouraged to see the potential for growth in the years to come. This is just the beginning to something much bigger.


Take a look at the pictures below.

Family News

Makara and I are pleased to announce that we are expecting a new baby. Makara is due in March. We are excited to have another child and a new sister (?) for Noah. We will still be visiting Canada for the whole month of December. Makara is excited as she has never been to Canada before. She has never been outside of Asia before. She has never been on an airplane before. I am looking forward to seeing snow believe it or not. I have not been back in Canada for three years and I miss the cold fresh air of Edmonton's winters.

Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to build the school and as we prepare to travel.

A big thank you to all of you who are supporting us.
