Life for now
Another weekend and another week gone. How time flies when you are having fun.
The end of May has been busy with work and ministry. We have had some wonderful experiences talking to the Burmese, Nepalese and Indian tailors and market workers. They are so grateful for time we spend with them talking about the bible etc. What a contrast to the UK, US, France, in fact everywhere we have lived before. THIS is what it is all about. Everything else, is secondary. What a wonderful privilege we have to be here.
We are very much enjoying the use of our new pool. Nick and I swim most mornings before we go out on the ministry or start work. Today we have a rainy day but everyone is swimming anyway. Cool! The girls make good use of it too in the afternoons. Mr Pong, our landlord, has just fixed the lights too, so now we can swim at night.
My sweet and gorgeous little nephew is doing much better. He is still in hospital and his poor parents are exhausted but he gets stronger and stronger every day. He is slowly learning to feed properly and we are praying that he will be able to go home very soon.
Next week is our first visa run. Our plan is to drive down to Malaysia. It's a 9 hour drive from here but we will just do it in a day and then stay in Ko Lanta for a couple of days on our way back. It will be nice to see some more of Southern Thailand and to have a change of scene for a week.
We are having a party tonight, yeah! Our lovely friends, Mayumi and Yomiko, are leaving to go back to Japan so we have invited some friends over to say goodbye. Hopefully it will stop raining so some can swim. I love our international brotherhood here. Tonight we will have friends from Japan, Australia, Thailand, The UK (of course!) and the good ole US of A!
