Dear Praying Friends and Family,
Thank you very much to everyone who prayed for my school’s concert last month. I really enjoyed playing with so many of my students and hearing others of them playing in groups or individually in front of such a great crowd of people. For some of my students, this was their first experience, and they were quite nervous. Others couldn’t wait to finish just so they could get to the refreshment time at the end of the program. I had the exciting opportunity of getting to join some of our teachers to play through the classical style of an extended version of Phnom Penh, a song that was written by King Norodom Sihanouk.
The students are already six weeks into the semester and keeping busy. They’ve had multiple quizzes in English, education, and Bible, although there have definitely been some struggles along the way. It’s been exciting to see one of our students put forth so much effort this semester into both his grades and his demerits. He was one of the three whom we were asking prayer for at the end of last semester, since his grades were reaching a critical level. This semester, however, he’s made a complete turnaround, as he’s only gotten five demerits so far. This morning, he actually arrived earlier than all the rest of our students, which is a huge change from last year.
