hello from kratie

Greetings again from Kratie, Cambodia. I have so many things to say, and so little time, and I also don't want to bore anyone by writing things that interest only me.. so let's see how quickly and effectively I can write this blog.
My team (6 of my new best friends) flew home on Friday night, so I'm the only whitey here now. I stayed the Bible college for a few days, but all the students went home Saturday morning because they were very ill. I was also very ill for 1 week. I spent 3 entire days in bed, and was finally taken to the hospital. For $43, I consulted a doctor, had my blood tested twice, had my urine and a stool sample tested, and was given a week supply of 3 prescription medicines. 1 week later, I am feeling much much better.
Yesterday evening I arrived in Kratie with Pastor Vandy and missionary Tess. I am staying at Tess' house, and taking showers with a bucket and rain water, and learning how to sneak under a mosquito net without letting the bugs in, and also how to hide my food from the rats. Aside from this, I love Kratie very very much. I have many friends here. I'm not too sure on my schedule, but I know that I will be tutoring a handful of graduating seniors, and preparing them for graduation exams and then for scholarships. I will also teach 2 English classes in the evening.
On Friday afternoon, Tess and I will go by taxi 2 hours to ...

Sorry to hear that you've been sick. Glad that you are feeling better now - especially for so little amount. You're doing a great work over there; keep your spirits high - God can see them and I'm sure that he's smiling really big for you! :D I can't wait to hear the end of your story too!

Much prayers and God bless!
