You’ve been there several weeks now and several weekends. What is the local church situation? Are there many churches? Are there evangelical churches, both in native language and english? If the answer to the last question is yes, how are the pastors trained? Is Thailand a country that needs the gospel or has it been well evangelized but rejected?
And on the lighter side, when you took pictures at the market, did you ask permission or take stealth pictures?
Thanks Dad for the great questions! That’s what I’m talking about and looking for. I’ll now do my best to keep my end of the deal and answer as best as I can and as far as I know.
If you guys have anything in particular you’d like to know or see I’d love to tailor my posts to what ya’ll want rather then just kinda ramble and such.
Just Ask Away!
Hello everyone! I am doing splendidly. Since conference ended late last week I’ve been filling my days with a random assortment of work and play.
This past weekend and into this week has been the celebration of Thailand’s new year, “Songkran”. Thailand has a very unique way of welcoming in the new year. The entire country shuts down and has a giant water fight.
Its one of those things you really can’t explain, you just have to experience it for yourself.. and what an experience it is! All businesses are shut down as people flock to the streets and alleys buckets and water-guns in hand, ready to soak anyone and everyone who crosses their line of fire.
Darin and I went into downtown Chiang Mai and got completely soaked by the many truck loads of people as well as fortified bystanders with their large drums of ice water.
It was nuts.
Well lets see. I’ve got a space up here in the studio were I have busily been working on my own personal web projects as I wait for our clients to get back from their vacations. So I haven’t been doing a whole lot for their foundation yet, but it does look promising.
We went paint balling the other day at an arena here in town so I got to meet a couple more missions folks. We’ve also been playing softball on Sunday afternoons so I have really enjoyed that.
All in all it looks like April is going to be a pretty quiet month as a lot of our clients are out of town and people generally stay inside due to this month being Thailand’s hottest.
Thanks for all your prayers! Hope to get some pictures posted as I have opportunities to shoot.
