Depart from Phnom Penh at about 12 Midnight (Tuesday AM)
Fly for a total of 12 hours - broken up by a 12 hour layover in Korea = 24 hours
Arrive in Honolulu at 7 AM Tuesday morning - with the chance to do the day over again!
ACTUAL = Korean flt. 051 scheduled to arrive Tuesday @ 7:15 AM - Terminal M
(This makes up for when we flew here on a Monday and arrived on a Wednesday,
with no Tuesday in between!)
This is one of Kori's old Bibles - she used it so much the cover fell off. We brought it and 7 or 8 others with us to give away. English teacher & youth leader Sharian was so glad to receive it - he reconstructed his own cover & now carries it with him everywhere!
About the Crowley family - they relocated to Cambodia 18 years ago (Khmer Rouge was still active in some parts of the country, they brought their 5 small kids with them) from Hawaii. God has wondrously used them and others to literally reach thousands for Christ in this area, and plant 40 churches - that, in my book - is modern day HEROISM!
This is our last blog from Cambodia - we leave in a few hours. We will try a few summary posts from home. Thanks for traveling with us. God bless you!
