It was an impulse trip on my end and i pretty much needed a break- Went to look for cheap air tickets and Phnom Penh air tix was pretty affordable. Told Tim(Founder of Feed Starving People) that i will be heading to Cambodia and see if he needs my help with any errands. He asked me to run a few missions for him and i ended up spending more than half of my trip time doing FSP work. :)
We went to this village in Phnom Penh with 11 Families. We gave out basic necessities like rice, noodles. water and etc.
The most memorable instance during my mission trip was this young lady- slightly younger than me giving me the look of envy and anger when my local contact was telling her mum where i came from and how old i am and etc. Most of the families that i went to were really happy and some of them couldnt stop crying, hugging me or holding my hand. This girl in particular gave me a look of envy and anger that upon reflection after the mission trip i felt really helpless and sad.
Made me reflected a lot about whatever i was doing, even though vital for her physical growth(family in need of food to survive) but may be detrimental to her emotional growth. How could someone of the same age to her, be able to provide her with things that is necessary for her family's survival.
