Coming Soon

I promise, I will post on Cambodia. In the meantime, check out this link for some pictures. Or you can visit Jenny's blog and see what she has to say about it. I fully intend to post about Cambodia (with pictures, if possible) before I leave for Costa Rica and Nicaragua.

I'll tell you this much, I had a BLAST!!!

Angkor What?

well i'm sure it will be great when it comes!! So i guess i should ask you the same as i asked Jenny!! your 23 but what do u do?(work student?) are you married? kids?......

First off, Tim, let me tell you that you ROCK!
Yes. I am 23. Currently, I am neither a student, nor am I employed. Let's just say I am spending some time travelling and exploring my options. I intend to get more serious about that, when I get back from Costa Rica and Nicaragua next month. No. I am not married, although due to a language barrier, I am afraid I may be engaged to a 19-year old Cambodian boy (he looked 13 or 14) who offered me watermelon. We weren't sure of their customs, so I politely refused. Needless to say, I'm pretty sure there will never be a wedding between us. And no, I don't have any kids, but I do have 4 nieces, a nephew, a nephew on the way, and a niece or nephew on the way (both my sisters are pregnant). Tell me about you. Same questions...

Ok I'm also 23, I work full time for a company building/testing flight simulators. I'm single so not married, no kids, one amazing little neice that's a real miracle and 2 brothers and 1 sister in law.

And hey it's good to here that i rock! lol

So, Tim, did you go to school to learn to build/test these flight simulators? Is this for airlines or military or just fun? My brother and my dad are both pilots. My mom too, but her license hasn't been current in years. And my brother is the only one who flies regularly and the only one licensed for large airplanes. We used to fly everywhere when we were kids. Both my parents are from Kansas and in the summers, we would load up the Cessna 150 with all our luggage...the 6 of us (tight fit) and set out to visit family. I even have a log book, with about 7 hours logged. Sometimes I think about actually learning how to fly, but it is an expensive hobby.

Ok where do i start? Well when i left school i went to college for a while, got bored so started full time work for 18 months, then changed jobs and got an apprenticeship (where you work and go to college at the same time)at college i studied electronics and did quite well, but i was hating the job i was doing so when i got my qualifacation i quit that job and moved to where i am now. So no i didn't specifically train for this job but i seized the opportunity when it arose!!
We make simulators for airlines and for Military, the one i'm currently working on is for the US military!!
Flying is very expensive I do what i can in the simulators but nothing more because i can't really afford and in some ways it would feel too much like work.
When i finish my days work i like to leave it all behind!! (if that makes sense)
So do you know what u want to do after Costa Rica?
Well i think that Cambodian boy will be chasing you round the world now so you might have to marry him!! lol

Oh and is that a picture of you?

Liz J said...

No, I'm not sure yet what I will do after I return from Costa Rica/Nicaragua. No "real" jobs jump out at me right now. I, do, however feel more and more called to missions in some form. I was really inspired by Anna (our contact in Cambodia) who is the same age as me and doing God's work in a foreign country. I see that I don't have to wait until I get a degree or get married, or until I retire. I can serve right now. Now the question is where? And who do I talk to?

Yes, the picture is me--it's from a youth group snow trip a year and a half ago. I am modeling a handmade duct tape purse and trying to advertise for Coca-Cola (although they printed the can upside down...).
