Listen in as Jessalyn Denos shares with us her experiences in the Cambodia, Pnome Penh (P-nome Pen) mission!
“This photo was taken in one of my very favorite areas. I didn’t talk about it in the podcast, but it was a beautiful area out away from the Phnom Penh. I had the privilege of teaching and baptizing most of the people in this photo.”
“Cambodia gets very heavy rainfall, and unfortunately does not have a great storm drain system. Because of that it is actually very common for the streets to flood. This photo is somewhat mild flooding relative to what it can do!”
“The telephone wires always captivated me because they are just pure chaos! And truly it is a decent representation of the country as a whole. The traffic is chaos, housing is often built in random places, etc. I just always got a kick out of the wires!”
The sweet sister who was always happy despite very humble circumstances (mentioned in episode).
This is the sweet sister who could not read but learned the Book of Mormon from the children’s picture version on her lap and could tell every story from memory using the pictures!
“I visited that school to see a member who worked there as a custodian. She told me that it was a private school, which shocked me because of the state it was in. Unfortunately this is probably just a reality for the students there. I don’t know if they even know to expect anything different. It was very sobering to me.”
