Reflections Day 4

We started our day really early today, leaving the hotel at 630am. Chay Huan introduced her school,Satwant covered the teaching of Model method, we had lunch at the biggest mall in Phnom Penh, then Kok Hoong shared about his school, followed by his lesson on Nets. I got the participants to try our P6 problem sums in ratio. We then had a closing ceremony and had a buffet dinner with our hosts. 

I guess one of the highlights of the day was when I had to, I repeat, had to... resuscitate one of the participants who fainted outside the lecture hall. It took me almost a minute to get outside as I had not initially thought much of the situation. By the time I got to where the participant was, she was not breathing (I quite sure about this) and I could not feel a pulse (it could be that I could not locate the pulse at that time). Her mouth and eyes were closed and colour had drained from her facial skin. I did 2 blows and 3 compressions and thankfully she took in some air and awoke. We got her to drink some water, drink some sugar water and eat banana. I think it could be due to the heat, lack of water, sugar or potassium, but of course I'm no doctor. I'm glad she awoke. I remembered, in the anxiety of the moment, that life and death are in the hands of the Almighty. I'm glad that in this instance, she kind of came back to life, I was praying real hard, I tell you. Phew!

Now I'm feeling really happy about these 2 days of training. Everyone did really well. Our leader May is also taking a much needed rest. Get well soon! 

Agenda for tonight:
Skyping my wife and daughter(if she's still awake)
Read "The Hole in our Gospel" by Richard Sterns
