By the last week of March, Thailand's soaring heat announces the ushering in of summer. The sky is foggy...Cannot see the mountains and the hills nearby. The sun is a red ball. When we are glad to have the founder of the children's home coming for a visit. The girls have been enjoying their summer break with lots of different activities: playing, swimming, gardening. The older girls helped with sewing dresses for special show to welcome Uncle Bill.
A week or so before school is out... the volunteers and staff of the children's home took a little trip to enjoy nature and have a special time to be encouraged by God's Word.
The girls are all dressed up in their hilltribe outfit for a picture taking day and to say good bye to special friends who are leaving Thailand after many years of service.
At the Bible school, students and teachers get together to prepare meals for each day and some special events. On this day, a team of ladies from Canada came to hold a woman's seminar for the female students. There were prizes for each girl. I took a couple of girls from the children's home to join in to worship and learn about living, loving and praying with God's Word.
Taking girls on an outing to the dam. A lovely day in February. We had fun just roaming around... climbing, walking, talking....
Wow! I am SO behind in my blogging... So sorry, friends, I have been having some touch family issue that caused me stress and fighting for peace. Here is the closing of 2018 picture of me telling about the wonderful Christmas story at the Buddhist school. An awesome time! Then new year lights in our neighborhood and finally me helping one of our girls with a letter/card to her sponsor while my hair is all wrapped up in coconut oil...trying to get rid of lice...Yikes!!! Yes, it was bound to happen...
Happy time at the children's home as team from Foothill Church and our college students came to join our little girls in celebrating Jesus as God's Amazing Gift to us all.
Warm clothes for the cold days...A big 'thank you' to my dear friend in California for collecting these jackets for me to bring for the girls... A few jackets are left for us to send to the children at the refugee camp in Myanmar. We are so thankful...
I am thankful for the beauty of life and the beauty in nature...that in every situation of life, God is there to see me through. But most of all, I am thankful for my family and friends, in Thailand and in America. They all mean so much to me and have made my life colorful and meaningful. I love you all...Happy Thanksgiving!
Getting ready for an outreach at the local market... The Bible students prepare songs and testimonies to share at the open market. Over 60 students and staff caravanned to Lumpoon, a nearby province to share the Good News, pass out flyers and pray for people. A wonderful time!
