In 2007, we took a trip to Cambodia.
During the second week, I started teaching an English class. It was quite a challenge teaching an intermediate level when I spoke little Khmer. From time to time I would check for comprehension only to find blank faces staring back at me. I taught two intermediate English classes. In Cambodia, learning English is highly valued. It is seen as the language of business. While most people have to pay to learn English, the church offered free English lessons in hopes of drawing people into the church.
We adjusted nicely to the heat in Cambodia. We had an air conditioner in our room, but generally kept it set at 27 degrees C. (81 degrees F) Outside, it was regularly getting up to at least 33 degrees C. (92 degrees F).
As Buddhism is prevalent there, with at least 90% of the people practicing, the people are very aware of the spiritual realm and marvel at a man who can cast out demons such as in the New Testament. The Khmer (Cambodian) people are, for the most part, sincere, gentle and caring people.
