Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love when it starts getting cold and Christmas cups come out at Starbucks!! It has been a bit different in Cambodia. No cold weather and no Christmas cups! Halloween was a blast here. We had a party with all the missionaries. The kids dressed up in their costumes and we had carnival games and bunch of candy from America. Then Jesse and I had friends over and we watched scary movies. The 31st is also the Kings birthday so in the middle of our movie we heard fireworks so we ran outside and watched them from our roof. It was so much fun!!
It has been harder living here than I thought. I think it is because of everything going on back home. Winter is the best part of the year. I also feel like I am missing important stuff. Yesterday was my brothers birthday, my moms birthday is tomorrow, and Bria and Brent are having another baby. It feels weird to be missing everything. I have to constantly remind myself that this is where God has me, has us! I know that for these next eleven months this is where God has us. I know God has plans for us here. I know he is already working in the both of us. Please pray for Jesse and I. We are seeking God's direction in our lives. I am trying everyday to grow closer to God. Thank you for your continued prayer and support. Love and miss you all!!
