Our final destination for this trip was Kong Pixay, our very first orphan home. The relationship that has been built there and how far it has come since we first came is incredible.
Kong Pixay is unique in that it is a hub of the village and is deeply integrated into the surrounding village. They’ve built relationship with the community around them and the fruit has just spread and spread. This year, I saw kids from the community up on stage leading worship that weren’t involved last year. The whole community came out to greet us and spend time with us. There was so much joy and life there, we could all sense it.
We were able to bless the home with care packages of toiletries, and a whole SUITCASE of shoes! In addition, we provided the mayor of the village with supplies to rebuild some roads that had been washed out by the rainy season. We had a powerful time of prayer together, and we are believing that Kong Pixay will be a center of healing - both spiritual and physical.
Tomorrow begins our R&R! That means ice cream, exploring, spas, and adventure.
