Hi from Krabi, Thailand!
So, today is Jamie’s 21st birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are finally here in Krabi, Thailand, which it’s own Province (kind of like a state in the U.S.) and we are loving it! We are staying in 3 different houses from people at the church. They have been so good to us and are serving us any way they can. We came to serve in all of the places we have gone to so far and we are surprised in every place in the way they serve us! It is a very humbling experience to say the least. Jamie and I are staying in a house with two little boys, 12 and 8 years old, and can’t seem to get enough of them! We both have always wanted little brothers and no we have them!!! The two boys go to a bilingual school where they learn math, science, and health in English. The 12 year old, Ohm, is completely fluent in English and Thai when his younger brother, Oak, still in the process of learning English. He’s not as far along, but he’ll learn. Today, Saturday, August 4th, we are cleaning the church all day. Tomorrow, we have church, and Monday and Tuesday we will be conducting an English camp on the beach! There will be about 90-100 kids total! From there, we will get to have a few days of our own before we leave for Chang Mai! God has been so good and faithful to us. We are so blessed and even though some of the trip has been tough with being home sick some days and missing people, I wouldn’t change anything. I know that going through experiences like this builds character, not just for me, but for everyone on the team. Thank you all for your prayers and your words of encouragement. I hope and pray many blessings of peace and joy on all of you!
