Building relationships in EA

We chose this primary/ secondary school as our project site for Expedition Agape Malaysia 2013... 5 rooms per school out of which only 3 are being used. It is out far in the Baray district of Kampong Thom.

There is a room designated for a library in the school, but there is nothing in it but dust and cobwebs! There are not even shelves!

Our friend who came with us asked, "Why do you only renovate this school... Why don't you travel to different places?" He did not understand that the foundation of what we do is to share love and build relationships. The youths will get to know the children and youths of this school as they teach, paint, learn together and get to know each other.

I was thinking this morning that, maybe if we all did something like this, then such genocides as Pol Pot's, Saddam's, the Armenians etc. would never have happened. Because then we'd know that we are all the same.
