Birthdays are one of the fun days for Aleeyah and the pastors kids. Here you see Aleeyah, Paul and Peter and Hannah tossing their pops when they attended Katies first birthday. (Katie is the daughter of missionaries Tim and Tiffany Gallants.)
Here is Esher sitting at the hammocks of Ptr. Vandy and Tita Rolitess when we visited their home. She is making that cute gesture of Miley Cyrus from the Movie Hannah Montana that we borrowed from one of her favorite pastor, Lookru King Titus.
To cut down on travel expenses, we slept at the church sanctuary when we visited Kratie Wesleyan church to fellowship with the members and give them encouragement to remain strong in the Lord while we all wait for the re-opening for corporate worship.
One of the things Aleeyah enjoy when we are traveling is making friends. Here is a picture of her and Chantha drawing and writing English words together. Since Chantha speaks several English and Aleeyah understands Khmer, they are able to carry long conversations like this one.
She likes to play with the camera. At first she captured a close up picture of this cross and then later she asked mommy to capture this one for her. Aleeyah loves Jesus and she knows that Jesus Christ was nailed in the cross to bring salvation to humankind.
Esher also enjoy traveling and explore her world. While in our house at Phnom Penh, she is always inside the house not being able to see the sunshine very much, not being able to touch the soil and the sand. When we are traveling, she gets to enjoy every little thing that catches her attention. She likes to play with the sand, catches the chicken, watch the pigs, etc. etc.
You saw many pictures of her enjoying this special curry soup with french/baguette bread. She really likes it.
No they are not in their bedroom, they are inside the van during our five hours travel to Kratie. Greg removed one of the chairs of the van, laid mats, put pillows for them to feel comfortable during travel. For that long hours of travel we have to think of ways to entertain them and make them busy. Aleeyah always travel with her reading books, writing books, coloring books, pen, pencil, crayons, scissors, dolls and toys.
Aleeyah experinced her first wedding flower girl here in Cambodia during the wedding od Jeff and Channy. Esher was walking after Aleeyah and Hannah. Hannah finished throwing her flowers earlier than Aleeyah. When Esher saw that Aleeyah's vase is still full of flower petals, she grab all of them and had fun throwing them at the carpeted floor right at the front of the flatform.
