Cambodia Bound

After I stopped listening to myself and stopped planning a trip I wanted to go on, I heard from God who let me know I was suppose to go to Cambodia. The only way I can explain it is that I'm so excited I can throw up. I'm scared and excited at the same time. This trip will definitely be LIFE Changing. Who knows, I might sneak a baby in my luggage and bring him back home.

Here's some information- In April 1975 (not very long ago), after a five-year struggle, the nation of Cambodia fell victim to one of the worst genocides in history led by an extremist group known as the Khmer Rouge. Under the leadership of a man named Pol Pot, they unleashed a horrific plot to gain control of this Southeast Asian country. The results were unimaginable. People of all ages and walks of life were driven from their homes, regardless of their physical condition; those who refused to leave were killed. Children were taken from their parents to live in forced-labor camps. Factories, schools, hospitals and businesses were shut down. Professionals of every kind—lawyers, doctors, teachers, engineers, scientists—were murdered, along with their extended families.
Please pray for me and the whole group. Any financial gift would be a blessing!
