Wersher Kwayla

This week there was a simple service project to cut down some trees, so we invited like almost literally everyone we know so that they can all help do service because doing service is the funnest (auto correct did not say that "funnest" is not a word, so suck on that Gary Preisser) thing ever. We had a group of recent converts and investigators all show up to do the work of like 2 people. It was awesome. 

The more time I spend talking to random people in a random language in a random country, the more I realize that the Cambodian race is just full of a ton of people who look and sound like Johnny Depp, but only in Captain Jack Sparrow form. And only when Jack Sparrow drank a ton of rum.

We have a new dude we teach named Hua who is the drummer in a members band. He is super cool and since Cambodians are out of school right now on summer break, he hangs out with us and does service with us all the time. Pretty cool.

I will tell the rest of this week through picture form!!!!


The super Asian van that everyone drives here is my dream car 

I taped a ton of flashlights to my helmet 

We were talking to a group of dudes and they all started cracking up cuz they said this guy looks just like me. He's a handsome guy, huh? 

Giving someone a ride on your bike is called "doping"

People living on boats

We tried a new method of finding new people to teach we call "ballooning". We put questions in some balloons and told people to come pop a balloon and answer the question inside. Questions like "what are your goals in life?" and "what are you thankful for?"

This guy gave me his shirt when he was drunk, so I gave him my shirt (I wasn't drunk) 

He didn't even question why I took the picture like this
