Our time in Scotland continues to be refreshing; cooler weather, camping trips (see picture), bike rides and catching up with friends. Ali has been visiting prayer groups and churches to share something of the work in Cambodia whilst Cathy has been supporting the girls at home. It seems strange to think that we will start packing up again at the end of June and get ready to head back to Cambodia in August (after some time on a course at OMF for Ali and some holiday time in July). It has been encouraging for Ali to meet many faithful ‘prayers’ at the prayer groups and we really enjoyed seeing old friends and hearing of the work that is going on at St John’s Newland (our old church in Hull) as they adopted us as Mission Associates. The girls are continuing to enjoy their time at school (Abigail especially likes the smaller amount of homework she is getting!) Due to not having any internet access at home it has been challenging for Abigail to keep in touch with her friends, but the few times she does manage to get some WiFi there are excited messages from around the globe! Kirstin is missing her friends and teacher in Cambodia but has enjoyed having her sister back as a playmate (as she has less homework!) Ali was pleased to meet a Cambodian student (Lipsa) through a contact at Stirling Uni – please pray that he might get involved with the Global International Cafe that is run on campus there. Cathy is looking forward to attending an OT conference in Birmingham in the middle of June. The team in Cambodia are continuing to grieve for Wonil and it is hard to be apart from them all at this time. Added to that there has been a high incidence of Dengue Fever this year and two team mates are hospitalised at present. Please pray for those affected and especially Dr Simon Collins (the team doctor) as he manages the situation. Please also pray for a time of refreshment and healing as the team have their Field Conference from the 24th-28th of June. God bless, Ali, Cathy, Abigail and Kirstin
