Christmas is a work day in Cambodia but at supper time the Maryknoll Cambodia Mission Team got together with several friends who pray with us every Wednesday and we had a delightful dinner together.
This is the Christmas tree at the Maryknoll office. The Maryknollers put it up on Wednesday as part of their weekly meeting. It is a little simpler this year than before. It is an artificial tree and we removed one section so it wouldn’t be so tall, but we also cannot find a box of Christmas decorations that we used before.
Thanksgiving Day is a work day here in Cambodia, but after work, all the Maryknoll team gather for a turkey dinner each year, inviting a few colleagues who pray with us regularly through the year. Click here to see this year’s dinner.
For the past week, Maryknoll Cambodia has hosted what we call an immersion trip, bringing a group from usually the United States and exposing them to the language and culture and people of Cambodia to help them get an idea of mission in this country.
Mr. Jan Frey in Germany, a long-time friend and reader of this website, sent me an e-mail noting that the link to Maryknoll Bangkok Meetings–3 (scroll down to 13 November) wasn’t working. I checked it out and found that I had prepared the page the link connects to, but had neglected to “Publish” the page after I completed it. It should be working now, Thanks, Jan!
