This day is never easy...
Somehow, in the matter of only a few short days, your heart becomes entangled with the hearts of the kids. You dread the moment when you must step foot on the bus and take your final glance out the window.
Yet, as much as it hurts, as much as it feels as though you may not be "okay", peace does come.
It moves through every embrace, anoints every head.
So instead of sorrow, there is joy in the knowledge that the children Jesus has brought into our life this week have experienced a love unlike anything they have ever known.
Seeds have been planted, and though we may never see the growth and fruition in their lives, we can leave knowing that all has been for His glory. God is still with them. He will keep them safe. He will continue to remind them of our love.
[Philippians 4:7] And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
These ladies were part of the staff at the New Lucky Star Restaurant; they took great care of us during our stay in Anlong Veng. Every morning they served us endless amounts of coffee with kindness and joy!
