Chaing Rai for us, has been an incredible chance to come to understand the culture of Thailand. Casey Wright, our contact and friend of Ted’s here, has lived in Thailand for 3 years, so we’ve learned a lot from him! (Besides, he is married to a Thai women, so that helps).
Ted and I have learned a lot about compassion, hospitality, loyalty, friendship, and love while being here. We have been challenged in many ways on this outreach: in leadership, in marriage, in communication, in our character, in our weakness, and in our strengths…basically it would not be an exaggeration to say we’ve been challenged in a little bit of everything!
As we headed out from our guest home, I couldn’t help but cry. It’s hard leaving such a beautiful place and friends. Oh golly.
Please pray for our team as we head out tonight for a 12ish hour bus ride. I’m not sure if we’ll have internet our last week, so we shall see. If so, then I will update you with more photos, for i have a lot more to share!
