Hope you are doing well!
The ministries here in Thailand have been wild with kids camps, and our regular ministries. We spent a lot of time working with kids around chachoengsao since they are out of school for the summer time. This also means it is hot season – making the days feel longer than usual.
Good thing we got to experience the yearly celebration of Songkran during the hottest time in Thailand! Songrkan is basically Thailand celebrating Thai new years with a nation wide water fight for an entire week. You also get past smeared on your face, which the Thai people still managed to reach my face a couple dozen times.
There is one other celebration that comes with Songkran. And that is the pouring of water on elderly hands, which is a blessing. Many families participate in this celebration -where their sons and daughters pour water over their elders hands and ask for forgiveness and give thankfulness as the elders bless them. We got to do practice this celebration with the elders of the church.
I mentioned early that we spent a lot of time doing kids camps, and even a family camp with some of the Mb churches in Thailand. Here is some pictures to give you an idea of some of the things we were doing.
Playing games with the kids, and I think they got my name wrong (people call me shaggy)
We also visited a Zoo with our Thai friends.
Thank you all for following me on this journey.
Please pray that:
- We finish off our last month strong
- Our friend Knots’ mother passed away, please pray for strength for him.
- and that God continues to open doors for new believes
