Reunited Over Coffee
In 2020, we helped a sweet Cambodian lady (who did not speak English) on a flight from Seattle through the transit in Korea. We wound up in the same quarantine hotel, where she visited us and brought us food since she was in the neighboring room. Melissa became Facebook friends with her, and they stayed in touch and communicated through Google Translate.
They reunited this month over coffee and spent two hours talking and catching up. Some of this woman’s family lives in the USA and Canada, and we all hope to have a big meal together when they visit Cambodia! What a joy to be in touch and get to know random people that God connected us with!
The amazing part was hearing about her and her husband’s arranged marriage by the Khmer Rouge in 1978. They shared the story with Melissa, and it was an honor to sit in the presence of this couple who survived and were so resilient through what they experienced.
