So sorry everyone — in all of the news and events we’ve had to share this fall, I never finished introducing our team here in Cambodia!
So today, meet Lydeth (pronounced “Lee-Date”). He’s a recent civil engineering graduate who has been working with us since the office opened in April. Since then, he’s been an instrumental part of many of our projects — the airfield in Myanmar, the surveying during Laura’s trip to the Noah’s Ark project, the school, and others. He’s one of the bright young Khmer who make it so easy to be excited about Cambodia’s future!
Lydeth and I are in a core discipleship group (together with Nivo), so we’ve gotten lots of chances to talk through life, faith, and the bible. He’s full of good questions, always eager to learn and understand more than before. Despite his young faith, I’m always amazed (and challenged) by how deeply he thinks about the convictions he holds, and how he wants to reconcile those fully with his life.
One last item — he’s also the only other person I’ve ever met who expresses a love of “post-rock” music (think epic instrumental themes on electric instruments). So that’s pretty cool!
So keep an eye out for Lydeth — chances are good that he’ll keep showing up!
