Over the last several weeks I have sat down with each of my children and interviewed them for our Anniversary Month. Angela and I have been blessed with awesome kids, and I want our friends and supporters to have a chance to know them better. I hope you will enjoy these interviews.
How old are you?
Where were you born?
Do you have any idea why they call it Thailand?
Yes...it's because there are Thai people there, and because there is land there.
So, do you speak Thai yourself?
No, I don't know how to speak Thai.
Well then what language do you speak?
I speak a little bit of Khmer, and that's it.
What about English? Do you know how to speak English?
Ummm...I don't know about that.
What's it like living in Cambodia?
It's just like living in Thailand.What do you like to spend your time doing?
Playing with cars, playing with legos, and playing with Marbelous, but mommy never lets me play with that one because if I lose one of the marbles, one of the babies could find it and choke on it. I also like to draw pictures of race cars, horses, fire trucks, helicopters, airplanes, and look at books and color. And of course, go downstairs and play mountain climbing and cops and robbers.

Can you tell me something you think is neat about living in Cambodia?
Everything's neat. I like riding the moto with daddy. We ride the moto to go get a haircut. I also like going with daddy to the village so I can play in the dirt and throw rocks in the pond.
What do you like to eat in Cambodia?
I like to eat pizza, and ham sandwiches.
Is that Cambodian food?
I don't know.
Do you have a favorite restaurant in Cambodia?
Lucky Burger and Pizza Company. I like the cold places, but I don't really like the dirt places. And I REALLY like Tutti-Frutti. You can get your own ice cream and your own toppings, and they have lots of different colored seats.

Does anything funny ever happen in Cambodia?
Yes, when my dad tells jokes!
Do you have any Cambodian friends?
Yes...Ta, Soum, Ponleu, Ponlok, and Pich.
What do you like to do with them?

Do you do anything to serve the Lord in Cambodia?
I took the offering once.
What do you think you might want to do to serve the Lord as you get a little older?
Maybe be a preacher when I get old enough. And I can take the offering, pick up trash, sweep up, go soulwinning, and go to the village.

Is there anything that excites you about going to America?
Finding pennies and nickels. And is Burger King in America?
Yes, it is.
Then going to Burger King. And since my second favorite thing to do is play legos, I think Lego Land sounds pretty exciting.
|Just finished putting a birthday present together with daddy,|
Do you know why we live in Cambodia instead of in America?
Because God sent us to come to Cambodia to be missionaries.
And what do missionaries do?
Preach and tell people not to sin and tell people about God.
