A definite highlight of our trip was our work at Krasang Peam (KSP) village church. We held a 2-day seminar on “Why Is Jesus Necessary?” Sharon and Siriporn had a wonderful time teaching the children songs and games including “Jesus Loves Me” in sign-language. It was a wonderful experience and we got to meet some great people. Communication was difficult at times, but with smiles and joy in our hearts and eyes, it seemed as if the language barrier wasn’t a major issue. Their meager living arrangements (homes, food, clothing, etc) plus a lack of electricity or running water didn’t appear to steal their joy. We all have so much and often don’t realize it, taking our many, many blessings for granted. Come bedtime, Sorn Thy, a church leader was so kind to share his family’s sleeping area with the four of us. We unrolled a bamboo mat, strung-up our mosquito nets and enjoyed the rain’s soft patter on the metal roof. The next morning, we awoke to crowing roosters, oinking pigs, and mooing cows. Although the experience was hot, muggy, and tiring, these Christian brothers and sisters encouraged us greatly. They filled our hearts with joy as they shared their blessings with us. It is our prayer the Lord blesses them for their faith and sweet servant spirits. We can’t wait to go back!
THERE ARE SOOOO MANY GREAT PICTURES TO SHARE…WE WISH WE COULD SHARE THEM ALL…HERE ARE ONLY A FEW!
