{photo diary} Thailand weekender

weekend trip to an Akha village

In between our two weeks of teaching at MoPoSo we were given the chance to visit a local Akha village up in the mountains. It was such a blessing to meet the people there and their hospitality and generosity was amazing despite their limited resources. We attended their church and worshipping with other believers was so refreshing in a country that is almost entirely Buddhist. A small bonus was the incredible food and hilarious children that we played with all weekend.

Still more to come...

lots of lovee

p.s. leaving for Japan in exactly one week? MADNESS.

{photo diary} Thailand: provision

First leg of the trip from LA --> Seoul (14 hrs. with the girls)

Witnessed a rainy baptism our first Sunday in Maesai

Most delicious school lunch ... all for $1

Sharing the gospel with our students for the first time

break time everyday at the school complete with 10 baht ice cream cones

dinner visit to BBI

cute children everywhere in thailand :)

The past three weeks have been pure blessings. It is hard to believe that last week I was sweating in Thailand and now I am layering sweaters in LA. I wanted to share some photos from our first week because if I tried to post all of my photos here my computer would most likely yell at me and then freeze. That first week truly taught us to rely on God first and in turn felt His provision for us at every turn. Whether it was worrying about how many students would show up to our afterschool program, trying to find a classroom to hold our time (we held it in the rain outside once), or our health, God was constantly answering our prayers.

More to come...anticipate :)

lots of lovee

In 2 hours I will be down at church preparing with the team to load up the vans.
In 4 hours I will be checked in at the airport preparing to board.
In 6 hours I will be on sitting in a plane probably fast asleep from exhaustion.
In 16 hours I will be waiting in Korea for a flight to Bangkok.
Tomorrow I will finally be in Thailand.

For the past 6 months everything has been leading up to this trip. All of the planning meetings, supply shopping, evangecube studying, and teaching-clothes shopping. I am nervous sitting at home writing this because I know that for the next two weeks I have the opportunity to completely rely on God. He will reveal my weaknesses and my inadequacies (but after the past 6 months I am used to that).

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
John 14:27

Thank you to everyone that has been supporting me on this missions trip. I feel truly blessed :)

see you in 2 weeks!

lots of lovee
