I thought I was in paradise

Last month, 18 girls from Hagar's Recovery Program visited Bokor Mountain, a two hour drive south of Phnom Penh, in Cambodia. The field trip was designed to fresh body and spirit, and to help the group grow as a team. Here are what a couple of the girls had to say:

"I really loved being at the top of the mountain.  I thought I was in paradise. It was very cool, but I felt warmth. I felt the warmth of being in a family." -- Srey Phreak

"I felt so excited on my way to the top of the mountain. I felt like I was on the way to heaven. I loved the fresh air, the clouds, the flowers that I could touch. I felt so refreshed." -- Kanga
