Breakfast with the girls at The Center right before running off to school. Only Pblai has to go to the doctor today. As it would be a normal case for children with HIV, each child must have frequent check ups involving blood tests and other physical precautions. It has become a normal routine for us to visit the hospital 3- 5 times a month.
Thailand's rice field during the heart of rainy season. Thailand's rice farmers are diminishing due to high cost of living and lack of profit when selling rice. Only the middle man makes a profit when it comes to selling rice.
The girls are all ready for school in their uniforms. Wilai was able to sew on all of the patches necessary for each of the girls uniforms. She thanks God for her past experiences of sewing patches with her mother. That skill was quite handy for the occassion.
Wilai is checking all of the girls homework. Many of the girls at the orphanage must catch up to grade level and Wilai is diligently helping the girls to get there. :)
“Chai Yo!!” means “Victory!” The children were getting ready for Sunday School. When I asked one of the girls, 'What is victory in Jesus?' Nan, my 10 year old said, 'It means Jesus takes care ot us, we don’t have to fear ghosts anymore! ' When a society is full of superstitions, ghosts and spirits were something that they believed to be lurking at every spirit house and every tree. Thank God that with the message of God’s salvation and deliverance, we can have freedom and victory in Jesus!!
