On the way to Kompong Som on August 28, 2012, the group dropped by in Phnom Penh at Banteay Prieb, a technical-vocational training center for the physically challenged adults administered by the Jesuits. The group were offered lunch by Fr. In Don Oh, SJ, the center director and had given a tour to various training courses such as carving and sculpture, garments and textile, computer, electronics, metal works, and wheelchair production. They had also visited the souvenir shop where all the products are displayed to sell.
The long one way trip of about 8 hours from Nikum to Phnom Penh and then Sihanoukville and vice versa plus the visiting time at the mission places in Phnom Penh were undoubtedly tiring. However, Bro. Blas and Fr. Manoj, who took turns in the long driving and of course the youth, were happy to have the retreat and the mission exposure trip. Indeed, it was a nourishment to the spirituality and encourages social concern to each of the participants
