I will be taking the first half of August to travel and visit with my extended church family in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. For several years, we have supported an amazing organization called Asia's Hope. which was founded by former Element owner and friend, John McCollum back in 2001.
Over these years, we have had the photos of two children, Pay and Soktol on our refrigerator. My kids know about them, we keep them in our prayers, and we talk about them with others who have had the opportunity to go over and meet them face to face. Now it's my turn.
I've never been to a developing third-world country and I'm looking forward to shedding my normal day-to-day routine and comfort and embracing the uncomfortable.
I will be traveling with four friends and I plan to blog my trip here on a daily basis--depending on my internet access.
