"The weather will be just one of many adjustments I will have to make as I prepare for life back in the 'West'. Seven years seems to have gone by very quickly and I wonder what God has got ahead for me.

Creative signwriting â€“ a peek at life through signs and billboards
26 September 2012
â€œAfter the rather â€œheavyâ€ content of the previous blog post, it is time to lighten up a bit and share with you some amusing signs I have come across since coming to Cambodia. Most of them feature some rather â€œcreativeâ€ English, shown here for your amusement, with no intention of being derogoratory. I probably frequently use equally â€œcreativeâ€ Khmer and the locals are very patient and long-suffering with me! So, please fasten your seat belt, ensure your cellphone is turned off or in flight mode, your seat is upright and your tray table is stowed, â€“ and prepare to take off â€“ to Phnom Penh, Battambang and Siem Reapâ€¦. for a unique look at aspects of Khmer life portrayed through interesting signs I have seen while out and about in these places.â€ link»

Today's missionaries are a long way from the black-clad English clergymen pictured in 19th century paintings preaching to dark-skinned natives. The Anglicans' Church Missionary Society now sends mission 'partners' to regions all over the world - they are usually invited by local dioceses and their desire to work in the third world can be as much about helping the poor as it is about converting the locals. more»
