It's Saturday night and I'm feeling great. I think I've finally licked this bug. (Hmmmm. Maybe that's how I got sick -- licking bugs...)

The outreach went well, and I exchanged contact information with three or four people who may be very useful to our ministry. I met the Deputy Secretary of the Cambodian Import/Export Commission, who promised to help us find more effective ways of shipping things from the U.S. to our partners in Cambodia. I met a guy who works for an NGO that cooperates with orphanages to teach vocational and life skills to orphans -- very cool -- we've been trying to improve our programs for that. And I met a guy who has been successful in starting up new businesses throughout the country, and he promised assistance and advice as we evaluate microenterprise development. Praise God!

So, I'm pretty 'up' right now. And I'm feeling well enough to have church at the orphanage with our kids tomorrow. I'm stoked about that. There's pretty much no one I'd rather spend a day with, except for my family. Oh, and you, too, I'm sure.

Speaking of you, I'm really wondering if anyone reads this thing anyway. Please drop me a comment if you're out there. It will help me know who to thank when I get back.

Peace.
