Whenever I share something about life in Cambodia, I feel like I’m stepping out on a limb. Will readers who come here for book reviews and Bible discussions be interested in reading this? Is it irrelevant? Is it lack of focus or poor branding?
I don’t know, but this certainly does touch on God’s truths. Remember how I shared about testimonies? A week ago, someone special in my life has wrote her first ever blog post and shared the story of God’s work in her life (link at the end of this post).
‘Ming’ is the Khmer (Cambodian) word for Aunty. in Cambodia, we call each other ‘brother,’ ‘sister,’ ‘grandmother,’ etc regardless of whether or not we are blood relatives. Today, a very special Ming in my life answered a few of my questions about her first blog post.
Me: Why did you decide to start a blog?
Ming: Because this is what God told me to do. Because He told me to share His testimony – the way He worked hard in my life – with people around the world. People who are not Christians can read it and enjoy hearing about the way that He worked so hard in my life.
Me: Is it common for a Cambodian to have a blog?
Ming: I feel like I am the first person! And then I write in English! It is amazing that God told me to do this. It’s AMAZING!!
Me: What do you hope to share in the future?
Ming: I will share the words that the Lord tells me; I’m not sure what that is yet. I have to pray first.
If you’re interested in hearing this story of how God “worked so hard in [her] life,” you can read it here.
(PS – if you want an idea about something to comment on her blog, tomorrow, the 19th, is her birthday. 😉 )
