Then it was time to travel by bus to Sihanoukville to begin a week serving at the Milk & Honey English School, where the Redlands College students soared to new heights as they were thrown into teaching English classes to local children and youth. They gained a new appreciation for their own teachers back home as they planned a variety of lessons each day and delivered their lessons with warmth and enthusiasm. The long term vision of the ministry is to help educate Khmer students to be able to help their own people out of the despair and fear they live in following the genocide which happened only 40 years ago. Whilst there the team also helped with painting, gardening, cooking and cleaning. They bartered for produce at the marketplace using Khmer phrases and enjoyed visiting the beauty of the beach and waterfalls.
The most valuable part of the week for the team was building relationships with the Khmer students. It was very difficult for everyone to bid farewell at the end of the week.
A final day was spent in Siam Reap visiting the Buddhist temples before flying out. Arriving back in Australia on 28 September 2016 each member of the team knew they had left part of their heart in Cambodia and they were forever changed for the better.
