Summer 2013 Rachel and I are nearing the end of a special time. We began two weeks ago in Singapore. We stayed there a couple of days resting and getting used to being together 24-7. We tried a little sightseeing and made some rather serious errors in bus routes, getting lost and having to back […]
No apologies for the absence of entries here. Since I last wrote, I have been intensely focused on something like my “thesis” project for the imaginary master’s degree I am earning. As project manager for a complex job we performed, I had a chance to put into practice the many lessons I learned along the […]
Each morning I ask God to give me a glimpse of what He is up to here. Rarely does a day pass that I fail to see some evidence that His Kingdom is coming. I could share several from this week, but one was particularly satisfying… At work, in the production area, I rub shoulders […]
My work involves a fair amount of local travel so I spend some time on the road everyday here. Usually in a tuk-tuk, sometimes driving our company car, and occasionally on the back of a motorcycle if one of our more mature (translation: someone other than our young, crazy-driving males) staff is going my […]

Wow, it’s been almost two months since I posted. I am finally settled back into my life here in Phnom Penh after a brief trip to the US to reconnect with family and a few friends. I felt like my mother who in her later years would say “I can either get ready or go, […]
The short story…I have just experienced a most delightful and satisfying thirty-six hour adventure! So much happened that I want to capture details in writing so that I can relive this as a sweet memory in seasons to come. The short story is that I smashed my face while trekking in the Cambodian mountains…but if […]
So after Anna left, I went back to work and my boss, Bronwyn is back from the US and things have taken a decidedly different tack. Bronwyn is hard driving, decisive and has abundant energy. She created this business from nothing, and she sustains it with sheer will. It is something to watch. I admire […]
Don’t you just love that face…he is still smiling even after my insensitive laughing at his search for the “yuk” font type.
home invasion results in diminshed fear and great respect for Situon, my hero!
