New Bikes and New School for the Orphans
We have a joy-filled update for all of you! Just recently, each of the children in the orphanage received their own bicycle from the orphan ministry of Calvary Chapel in Okinawa, Japan. A couple from Koza Baptist Church in Okinawa was able to provide transportation for all of the bikes to get from Okinawa to Cambodia. What a blessing these bikes are to the kids, as they all begin studying at a Christian school, Agape, in Siem Reap. (See pics below for some action shots!)
Also, from Okinawa, a small group from The Harbor has committed to financially support the educational costs of the kids so that they can study at the Agape School. Not only are they getting a much better education than they would have otherwise but they are getting a Christian education and practical skills in addition to English.
Imagine the impact that these two groups of people are having in the lives of these ten children, even as they speak different languages and live in different countries.
The children are enjoying their week at school, riding to school on their new bikes, and interacting with their new teachers. Their smiles say it all. Enjoy the pictures!

That’s awesome news!! So does that mean all of them get to go to school now, not just some of the older kids?
