The week that we flooded

Hey Family. We have regretfully been very slow on our blog and newsletter over the past few months. 

We have been under the pump since our house flooded 4 times in 1 week! Cambodia has an annual festival called Pchum Ben which is in the thick of rainy season and this year was particularly bad. It rained so hard that even when it wasn’t raining the water was coming up through the ground. We weren’t the only ones hit hard, the open sewer running through the city flooded twice and reports say over 100 cambodians lost their lives.

We are now through having major reconstruction on our house to raise the bottom floor up about 2 feet in an attempt to avoid future flooding. We thought that we would share some of our journey with everyone so you can see what it was like. 

Here are some pictures of what we went through over the last couple of months.
