From Cambodia

Today I completed my first day of teaching here in Cambodia. We have about eighty students. They are all very eager and excited. They ask many questions, and just want to know more and more.

What am I doing here? How did I get to be here? In the midst of my teaching time today, I glanced up from my Powerbook and was about to move on to my next point--I looked up and saw the students looking at me, waiting for the next point, and I could not help but wonder “how did I get to this place?”

It is very humbling for me to be doing this. I am by no means an expert or a theologian. I do not have a Master’s in Divinity. There are so many more who are more qualified that I am. So what am I doing here?
While, yes there are many more who are more qualified than I--better theologians or more experienced teachers--they are not here, and I am. So I can only ask that God would use me and speak through me. He is the final and best expert on this subject (after all this is a Bible school). So in all my limitations and inadequacies, all I can do is depend on His anointing.

I love doing this. I love helping the local church in Cambodia.
