The adventure continues here in Thailand with some new events. Here is the latest update of the Month of February of my Trek journey 2016!
Koh Samet (Trek Mid-term retreat),
Half way through my time in Thailand, my trek team and I got the privileged to travel to a island called Koh Samet. Our leaders, Sam, and Lisa flew over from Canada to join us on the couple days of our retreat. We took the opportunity to spend time with our team, relax, and most importantly straighten our bearings right so we can finish off our final months strong. I expected to spend my time reading, yet the Lord had other plans for me. I learned some new goals to work through, such as serving out of the heart and not out of duty. I also met some new friends and got an opportunity to share a bit of my testimony. Pray that seeds will be planted, and cultivated in the people we encounter.
New Teaching Opportunities
When we came back from our Mid-term retreat we were all given a new schedule filled with teaching English. Some of our leaders here in Thailand talked to the local schools in Chachoengsao and organized us to fill some classes with an English class. It has been a wonderful experience to teach English, get to know the kids, and even some of the teachers. Please pray that seeds are planted and that we continue to build good relationships with the schools in Chachoengsao.
More Ministries and Experiences
We got to attend some parts of a Thai wedding, and help bless the happy couple by giving a hand with cleaning up after. Blessing the couple was not the only thing we got to do. We were blessed to have the experience of what a Thai wedding looks like, and enjoy some new Thai foods. This was also an opportunity to grow with are fellow Thai Christians in Christ when we came together for the celebration.
The other ministry opportunity this month was quite random. On a Saturday we drove outside of Chachoengsao to join some of our Thai believers in a evangelistic outreach. At the end, two people came to faith! We celebrated with games, a meal, worship and prayer. Continue to pray that the new believers become strong in faith, and that they are guided on their new journey.
My Spiritual Journey
It has been a great month, and the Lord has been teaching me how to serve with the heart and not out of plain duty. I also have been reading lots, and now trying to digest all the new information I have learned. Please continue to pray that the Lord continues to Mold me, and to help me be ready for the work he has prepared for me here in Thailand. Let God’s kingdom come, and will be done.
- Please pray that our relationships with the schools flourish and grow strong.
- Pray for the new believers who are coming to know Jesus. Pray that God will help change their lives.
- Pray that we end off our last three months with strength!
Thank you for all who support me.
