In the latter part of last year, my daughter made a big decision to move to Cambodia to teach school. The fear that gripped mine and her dad's heart can't really be described. Then we met the folks from People for Care and Learning. As we attended a cookout and heard stories of people who were serving with this organization in the states and Cambodia, we realized that she would not be alone. We left for Cambodia in January of 2012 to get her established in her new home. When we landed there, I was overwhelmed with the fear of being in a strange place and knowing that in 10 short days, I would have to leave her there. On the first full day in Cambodia, I walked into Common Grounds, a coffee shop established by PCL. It became my oasis! The staff there adopted me and my daughter immediately. Their compassion, attention, friendship, comforting words, great food let me know that God had definitely gone before us to assure a peaceful transition. It was life-saving then and still provides comfort to us when we skype or facetime with our daughter or know that she is there getting a great meal. There are so many other ways this organization has touched our lives. PCL, thank you!
