Here's what we've seen happen in the construction over the past 3 days:
Chhunly, the manager has dreamed of having a spirit house and flag pole in the central area of Honour Village, surrounded by ponds filled with lotus flowers and encircled by benches. Thanks to a very generous donor, this dream is quickly becoming a reality. It should be completed within the next two weeks.
