We have deemed November 15th of each year to reflect on the memory of a special young girl who loved orphan girls. Thank God for Breanna Joy Moritz that allowed us to have a wonderful children's home for over 14 years, called Breanna's House of Joy.
So thankful for friends at the Bible school where I volunteer twice a week, for allowing me to make grilled cheese for all the students and staff. We made over a hundred sandwiches and lots of smiles...Yum!
A little jungle at the base of a hill... We set up camp for the girls. "Lost in the Jungle" was the Bible theme sponsored by a special short mission team from Colorado.
We got to learn that Jesus is the answer when we are lost, when we are afraid, lonely or when we face problems. We had a wonderful time learning and growing together... Thank you, Springs Church. We will always remember you in our hearts.
As soon as I returned from my trip home in the States, I have been hitting the ground running with doing things with the girls. I did not get to see them for nearly 2 months. It was good to be in Thailand and care for the little girls again. Little gifts from America, chocolates, bracelets, then I started a crocheting projects and sharing at a church service at the children's home, while the girls were on an interim semester break...
Nothing better than spending special time with loved ones...Even though we have little time to spend together, making good memories. Other special people also that I want to see before time to return to Thailand... Thank God for each one.
P'Suporn is my friend and sister in the Lord during my college days, so long ago. She is a gift from God since then and continues to be such a blessing to me and my family. She and her husband, Pastor Savang has a Thai Laos church in San Rafael in California. They came to visit me at the Children's home and has been supporting me ever since... I got to visit them and the faithful people at the church. They love the Lord and is making a difference in the lives of people there in northern California. Thank you, P'Suporn and Pastor Savang for the wonderful hospitality.
Lovely ladies and new found sisters in the Lord... looking forward to seeing you again next year. Lord willing...
Each little girl has her own special story to tell about the past. As I interviewed each of of the 33 children and help translate their stories, I couldn't help but to ask the question... "What would have happened to them if they had not come to the children's home at Breanna's House of Joy?" These once abandoned little girls would have no future and no real home where they belong. Thank God, and thank sponsors who made it possible for them to have a place to live, to learn and to thrive.
God always bring very special people to the children's home. It is such a privilege to translate for each team that comes. A team may come for many reasons... to bless our girls, to bring training for the staff and to partner with us in the ministry. Each person leaves with us joy and encouragement. Thank you for visiting us...
We use coconut oil and tree tea oil to combat the lice. We usually have to do this about twice a year. The oil treatment is good for the hair and skin and drown out the lice. After a few hours, we comb out their hair to get rid of the pests and the eggs.The girls are such troopers as we have to do this 2-3 weekends in a row!
Last week, we had a lot of excitement about the big cave rescue of the soccer team in Chiangrai, our neighboring province. It gave an opportunity for all the students who attended the weekly morning worship service to pray for the 13 lives coming out of the cave and all the divers and rescuers. We talked about how the rope in the cave is like the life line of God's Word to get us out of the darkness of sin. We discussed the power of unity; with one cause, united with one heart we can overcome all the problems.
