Feet that carry good tidings

From sandals to snow boots and back

      We got back in Norway just about a week ago. Some of the things we definitely had to adjust to again were: * time (we’re ready for bed around dinner time and up early – this doesn’t sound like us at all,…

Picking fruit

The fruit is ripe, but we need a basket ;-)

As you probably know by now, we’re in Poipet, helping out at the YWAM base here. In the past 2 years the team here has built up a great base and lots of connections with neighbors and Khmer people all over the city. They have…

How to treat “your” missionary

Those of you who know our family, know that we are so fortunate to still have our own company back home, so even though we’re are out travelling and volunteering in missions, we still have some income, which pays for what we do and a…

Jen and the Androids


Nobody operates in a vacuum. People have gone before you, and people will come after you. There is only one ‘first cause’ and so even inventors stand on the shoulders of us ‘lesser mortals’. This post is to thank people and it is also to…

Pining for the Pine Trees

1 Kor. 13:13 – Kjærligheten

Men nå blir de stående disse tre: tro, håp og kjærlighet. Men størst blant dem er kjærligheten. Du har sikkert hørt denne teksten en gang. Den har blitt brukt, misbrukt, overbrukt og latt være å bli brukt. Idag fikk den en ny mening.

#peopleofpoipet Dany Ly

Dany Ly

This is Dany. She is the owner of a cozy coffee cafe just around the corner called “Dream Coffee”. She’s a neighbor who speaks English really well. She even understands Chinese – which is likely true, I will take her word for it.

Thai 100 Baht

Money, เงิน, លុយ

It’s sure funny, dealing with three kinds of currencies.

The neon lights of the casino district in Poipet, Cambodia

Jesus loves the little children

So we took at trip by night to check out the casino district of Poipet. It’s a colorful place, only partly because of all the neon light. Night markets are a thing in Cambodia and I am still not used to the concept. It’s an…

The fun of crossing the Poipet border

Monday morning at 10am we were ready packed waiting for our taxi driver to bring us to Poipet. Unfortunately he was waiting by the wrong building further down the road, which we didn’t find out until around 11am, so it took a while before we…

Last day in Bangkok

Bounce bounce bounce Sunday was our last day in Bangkok and since it was unsure what the weather was going to do, we first had lunch again at the Terminal 21 shopping mall and ended up taking the sky train to Phrom Phong station, which…

Big city life

  Our view by day and by night, what a blessing! We rented a small apartment through airbnb and just love love love the view and the location. We’re very close to the skytrain and a big mall with food court, and very close to…

The bum gun

The Bum Gun

Asia har bydd på mange nye opplevelser allerede for alle våre sanser. På godt og vondt pleier man vel si, men egentlig er det kun på godt sålangt. Vi oppdager sider av våre vaner som vi aldri ville tenkt på, men siden vi nå er…

Homo Slurpiens

Homo slurpians

Yes yes…. this western (no, not western as in cowboys and such, just… you know, from the west) family has now arrived in the east, the land of the homo SLURPians (in other words… noodles slurping Asians!). I’ve really looked forward to travelling to Asia,…
