Morgan is in Cambodia!

Team Cambodia arrived in Phnom Penh roughly ten hours ago, and they are safe, happy, and exhausted.

As you read this, they are probably sound asleep, preparing for a full day at the orphanage tomorrow.
This morning I was able to briefly connect with Morgan via facebook. We hope to skype tomorrow morning, and if it works out, we will actually get to speak face-to-face. 
Additionally, she sent this email to my mom, my dad, and me this morning:

Hi guys! Well we finally got here! I really don't even know what day it was. Went well, they did some crazy drill in the LAX international termnial that scared all of us ( tell you more later.) Has been going well. Today we went to the market. All I can say is that it is 10x worse than the mexico outdoor market. LOTS of BAD smells! The best was being able to see all the kids! They are amazing! They don't let go of you! I'll try to skype you guys tomorrow. Jen is waiting for her computer so, I can't talk long. Totally out of my comfort zone and missing you guys like crazy! Love you!

I've read this email about fifteen times, and every time I read it, I tear up. I am so proud of my sister, and I am so thankful that she is on this adventure.
Finally, Jen Morgan, the long-term missionary, updated her blog today, so please check it out for pictures and updates about Team Cambodia. The pictures of Morgan with those precious children absolutely melt my heart. I am so happy for her.
Please continue to pray for them. And, of course, I will continue to provide updates!
