In April of 2012 I took a trip to Cambodia to visit the people at Water Of Life, a church/orphanage in Phnom Penh, and to see the work the Lord was doing on the other side of the world. That trip changed my life.

I had absolutely no idea what to expect, but what I found was a beautiful country filled with beautiful people, but both still bearing the scars inflicted by a genocidal madman whose murderous regime would brutally claim over 2 million lives over 40 years ago.

I saw the incredible natural beauty of the landscape, and the ruins of a glorious man-made kingdom long gone. I saw the redemptive power of God alive and moving, as well as some of the blackest of all evils possible. I drank in the sounds, sights, and flavors of Cambodia, and fell in love with it all.

And I met truly amazing individuals that I now consider family.

In September of 2013 I went back, this time with my daughter, to embrace my brothers and sisters at Water Of Life once again, and to see where I might be a blessing. Now, Cambodia is not only part of me, but also of my family.

So, I have been working on a series of strips to try to convey my various experiences on the other side of the world. This coming Monday will be the first installment.

How long will it run? I don’t know, I’ve collected quite a few, but I tried to approach the strips as general human experiences that I think all will be able to relate to. Only a few are specific to Cambodia.

I’m looking forward to your comments, and thoughts.

God bless.
