Easter in Cambodia Part 2: Orphanage Angel in a Yellow Hat

[Thinking about that kid in a yellow hat. How often has he been photographed, by well-meaning foreign visitors? It's great to have visitors, but what's even better is that at LTS we get to be part of a community that strengthens people like Joseph who lives near this child, and can minister to him, the other orphans, and the STAFF of this orphanage, on a long-term basis.]
Easter 2010. Wayne visits one of his LTS graduate students, Joseph, who is now back in Cambodia leading a pastoral training school. Here is Part 2 of the everyday sights for Joseph in his work which includes ministry with staff and children of the  CPCDO orphanage in Phnom Penh.  

A volunteer group from the Happy Tree organization in Hong Kong was also visiting while Wayne was there, leading the kids in all kinds of fun & educational activities.

I've included pictures of the bedroom facilities for the kids.... funds are currently being raised to move the orphanage to a better facility, where sewage floods will no longer seep into the children's bedroom (as is now the case).

You can see Wayne's full set of CPCDO orphanage pictures here.

    36 He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, 37 "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me." -- another one of Jesus' "action parables", retold in Matthew 9:36-37
