Guest blogger & friend, Marcia, shares her experience in Cambodia, making story ropes with pastor's wives.

"I was part of a team that hosted, taught & made art at a pastor's conference in Cambodia. I worked with the pastor's wives helping them tell their stories through making story ropes.

As the women shared their stories in small groups with multiple translators, the horrors of the Khimer Rouge began coming out.

Most had been little during the Killing Fields. Several remembered the loss of their father. One was separated from both parents at birth. There were many tears.

As the women shared, we stopped, spoke truth into each situation and prayed.

The story ropes were a bridge to get the stories out. All were amazed and encouraged as prayer and truth were spoken into each story.

Hopefully the healing had begun."
