Sunday Nov 9, 2014
Today was a full day. The morning started off at Phnom Penh New Life Church where we heard a sermon on the blessings of God. From church we visited a local mall. Just for instant I thought I was back at Lenox Mall in Atlanta. There were all sorts of high end stores There was even a movie theatre playing first run movies.
After visiting the mall, we went to the orphanage. At the orphanage, we played games with the kids and had Thanksgiving dinner with the kids where we ate sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and Kentucky Fried Chicken. Before the meal, each kid said one thing he/she was thankful for. I heard some amazing responses such as being thankful for a home, thankful for God’s salvation, thankful for food, thankful for God’s grace, and many other wonderful things. Each team member then mentioned something they were thankful for. We then sang the prayer song that the kids sing before every meal at the orphanage.
