This trip was different in that it was only two flights from Phnom Penh to New York City. I left Phnom Penh late on a Monday night and got to Tokyo early Tuesday. Click here for the first part of this nine-day journey.
In two hours I will head for the airport and Maryknoll, New York for a Maryknoll Lay Missioners board meeting later in the week. I will be in transit for about 38 hours so there probably won’t be an update until I get to Maryknoll in the early evening of Tuesday.
I’m still having lots of trouble getting connected to the Internet at the Bangkok Christian Guest House. It’s a nice facility with lots of positive features but Internet access isn’t one of them. I’ll be back in Phnom Penh tomorrow evening but until then here is a picture from the sidewalk-food-stall scene along many of the major footpaths in the city.
Today was a day of welcome at our weekly Maryknoll meeting and liturgy. Sr. Regina Pellicore (L) was with us from 1995-2010 when she went to Maryknoll, New York as the treasurer for the Maryknoll Sisters. Now she has returned to be with us again.
Kylene Fremling (C) is a new Maryknoll Lay Missioner who has just arrived in Cambodia. Kylene met us in Thailand for last week’s gathering for a retreat and meetings and now she begins her assignment in Cambodia.
Judy Santmire (R) is an old friend of Maryknoll who was with us for several years and then returned to the United States. Now she is back to be with us again.
Welcome to you all!
Today saw the retreat center greatly emptied out as a final day turned into a travel day for many of the Maryknollers who were here this week. Click here for the photos.
