These are some more stories that I have meant to update you on.
Marine Reach DTS Team & Shan Project DTS Team
We at YWAM Borders have such an amazing staff team. I am so blessed by them. Aum and I had already committed to going to teach down South but we had 2 teams that wanted to come to us to do ministry. Our staff team prayed and they all felt like it was going to be so much work but that God was saying to take the team and that it was actually a special opportunity to lead a outreach group while NOT having Aum and I here 🙂 Which is awesome because Nirut and I usually have to take care of so much with teams that come. And of course Stephen, Angela, Max and Tom did so Awesome! I’m so impressed and so thankful. Nirut made it back to be with the team the last week they were here so that was fun. We also had one of my past students in Bangkok named “Beer” come up for that week to help cook for the teams and for the camps that they ran. I think it was fun having him. He loved it so much that he decided that he wants to come back on as Staff for Borders. 🙂
We had 22 people staying at YWAM Borders at the same time. Which makes for a pretty crazy time. The Shan Project DTS is a DTS from our good friends here in Mae Sai that we are starting to do more and more with. They came and spent the week at YWAM Borders and worked with our team and with the Marine Reach team.
The teams together did an “ART” camp for the kids. Teaching them how God is the Creator and how we can create with Him. They taught the story of creation and taught painting and a day on Music. It sounded like it was SO much fun. The feed back from everyone was so good.
Teaching in the Shan Project DTS
The day after I got back from the Myanmar Conference I started teaching in the school I just mentioned above. I only had 3 days with them but I felt that it really was a good time. It has been special to go deeper in our relationships with the crew over there. It seemed like God was working on peoples hearts while I shared. I had fun anyways 🙂 I pray that God used whatever I shared for His glory.
10 Years in Thailand
We have a new team here right now and have had an AMAZING weekend that I will write about later but I keep thinking about how crazy it is that I have been here for 10 years now. Thinking about what God has done and the excitement for what He is doing. I decided to start reading my journal from 10 years ago and it is amazing to see my prayers in that as a 23 year old. Tonight one of our friends was over at our house and I was sharing about the picture I had 10 years ago so I got one of my journals out and showed the picture that I drew. It was neat to see that it has really been happening and that Gods love is reaching out to the people of the Golden Triangle. He is sooooo GOOD!
The picture on the left is from my journal in 2005 on the right is an ASEAN 2015 guide. Looks like it picked Mae Sai as a hot place for all kinds of activity. But we are believing it is the launching point for God to use to reach the Nations.
