We have just completed THE most fantastic two weeks!
- We went with a small team on outreach to the province of Phetchabun, where we helped college students with their English finals and accompanied them on their weekly trek to a local women’s prison.
Oh, the questions we answered! These college students were curious about America and Jesus! Since my Thai is far from conversational, it was nice to be able to communicate with them in English. I was honored to give my testimony and hopefully plant a seed or two in the hearts of these young men and women. They were an inspiration, and I now have about a half a dozen new Facebook friends!To sum up our time in Phetchabun, I think Jaynee posted it best on her Facebook page: “just got back from a prison ministry. it was really fun. more fun than i thought it would be. with a bunch of people from chiang rai. really really fun outreach.” (It was really, really hard not to correct the capitalization and grammar here, but I managed to resist … because I’m trying to be a cool mom.)
- Last week I took the form of a minion – at least that’s what my co-staff member called me all week.
