The Engagement Party

Andrew came to the door and softly called us from our sleep. Oh, 4 a.m. Already? It was such a short night…   We hurriedly took our baths, and grabbed our good clothes, hopped on the motor bike and sped away into the night. It was not far to Khen’s house, where lights and activity…read more.

A missionary past time… (by Andrew)

I frantically twisted and turned on the door handle, but to no avail. The door was not going to come open and I was stuck inside with no escape; what was I going to do? How would I get out? And for those of you who may be wondering, how did I get into this…read more.

Another Year (by Andrew “អេនឌ្រូ”)

Let’s show our faith! (by Andrew)

(adapted from anonymous) John stood looking out over his rice fields which should be a bright green, but which were now dusty and bare. There had been no rain for weeks but it had seemed months, the grass had all whithered up and there was not a green thing in sight, if the rain didn’t…read more.
