Greetings everyone! Sorry for the gap in postings. We have been very busy lately. Its now past 11pm and we just finished our last interview of the day. Whew. We got to interview Bridget (Nana as the Cambodian people affectionately call her) as well as a number of the counselors. It was a great day and we got even better footage. The interview that we just finished was Clay’s and that one was equally as good.
We had some down time yesterday so we went shopping at one of the markets and I am forever ruined when it comes to buying clothes in the states. I am getting a shirt tailored and guess how much it is costing me. Go on! Guess! Ok, Ill tell you. $6 dollars! That’s right, a custom tailored shirt is only 6 bucks! I would never buy mass produced clothing again! Its awesome. After that we went to Mass at an English speaking Catholic church and had a great time. It reminded me how much I miss taking my Grandmother to Mass. We capped off the night with a bite to eat at an Italian restaurant.
Today we filmed the Church service at Rahabs house (the old brothel) in Svay Pak. The three girls that we have been able to interview so far were there. It took a second for the significance of the picture to hit me. There I was, witnessing three girls worshiping and praising the Lord in the very same building where they had been brutalized and raped so often before. What a transformation inside and out! I love that!!!!
Anyways, it is now way way way past my bed time. If everything goes as planned, we will be filming in the Restoration Center tomorrow. Thanks so much for all your prayers and support!
