Hard to believe this is our last week at our ministry site.  Dec. 28 we head back to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to meet up with our whole squad and some time between then and Jan. 2 we’ll be headed to Vietnam...our 7th country on the race.  Our last two days involve going to two different slums, a Christmas Party/Program (Cambodians don’t celebrate Christmas) so we get to share the message of Jesus birth.

I’m not sure why, but each month I’m surprised at how completely different our ministry work looks like compared to what we thought we’d be doing.  This month in Thailand, we worked with Lighthouse in Action, who is fervently working to end human trafficking (the sale of women and children for sex).

World Race: Philippines relief efforts Print E-mail
Tuesday, November 26, 2013 7:51 AM

Being on the World Race there have been many silly and indescribable experiences.  Month one in Guatemala and Month two in Honduras were spent sleeping in a tent. I’ve camped plenty of times, but certainly not for this duration. In Guatemala we were in the chilly mountains and it rained almost daily. In Honduras we had fabulous weather but battled horses and dogs “visiting” our tents. For two months I still had the luxuries of a tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and a headlamp. I say “luxuries” because the people of Philippines have anything but these comforts.

Mother and son from Wautoma plan a Mission Trip to Ethiopia Print E-mail

When we sit down to a meal, whether it be breakfast lunch, or dinner, we are often planning our next meal.   In the United States we are blessed with food and we are blessed to have jobs.  Yes we have poverty, but nothing like third world countries such as Ethiopia where Misty Detjens and son Parker, 23, Wautoma, will be going on a mission trip Dec. 15-24.  Most of the people of Ethiopia eat only one meal a day and often that meal lacks proper nutrition.

Local ladies caught in South Dakota snowstorm Print E-mail

When Polly Hartford, her sister-in-law, Eileen Christensen, Wautoma, and another sister-in-law, Joanne Dunn, Pardeeville, signed up for the last seats available on a Diamond Tours bus trip to South Dakota, little did they know that they would find themselves in the middle of a record-breaking snowstorm that would paralyze the South Dakota interstate system and businesses, as well as devastate herds of cattle. Their seven-day bus trip turned into a nine-day bus trip that none of the ladies would soon forget.

After hours and hours in the air we finally made it to the Philippines.  Jet lagged and ready to take on the world, we collected our bags from the airport and hopped on a bus to our ministry contact.  Our host site, Kids International Ministry, told us their goal this month was for us to fall in love with the Philippines and its people – and I can confidently say each one of us has.

I wasn’t sure what I would share about this month at first. My adventures this month involved visiting the ocean with the volcanic sand, walking the streets of Bethel (sounds like Bet-el) with teammates to meet new people, meeting a girl with a pet monkey named Betty, playing something like Red Rover in Spanish, and being really sick.
