Dec 19, 2018 - To Bangkok

Yesterday morning we were all feeling a little sad. It was a beautiful morning and sunrise over the river heading to the train station. Myunhong Lee and Netnapas took us. We were a little relieved it was only them, because Lee posted our leave times on the Congregation Line. But like Ma'am said it's too early I not get up. If we would have gotten more we would have probably cried. These friends have truly taken our hearts and we have such close friends here. Even though we barely can communicate because we are still toddlers in the...

Dec 17, 2018 - Final days in Ubon

Saturday would be our last day in the ministry. We worked a business section of the city. I placed several tracts. One place was obviously an old restraunt. If you walk in the door it was dark but the doors and windows were open for light. They had traditional thai style charcoal grills going outside in the back. But much of the smoke was coming into the restraunt. It smelled delicious but probably not good for the lungs. But the lady accepted a tract and meeting invitation. Also the brother with me was able to continue a nice conversation...

Dec 13, 2018 - This week

This week has been relatively quiet. Monday after service Emily left us and went with Sky on return visits. Then they went to play basketball, and badminton. Badminton is very popular in Thailand. Often many from the congregation get together to play. Sky didn't bring her home til after 10. I think they had fun. We've been mostly catching up on school work. Were now getting to our last week in Thailand. We bought our train tickets to Bangkok. We got 3rd class for only about $5 each. It's a daytime travel. So by the evening we will be in...

Dec 8, 2018 - International Convention

The last two days have really been a bit of an international affair. There we're 105 at the meeting on Friday night. And as Brother Lee put it, this is an International Convention. Ones from all sides of the Earth are here in this congregation. One highlight. On Friday morning in the ministry I placed a tract with a man sitting by a food cart. A little bit later a sister from Korea that is here for the campaign tried talking to the same man. Only she gave him a meeting invitation. He came to the meeting last night. I think he was impressed...

Dec 6, 2018 - International dinner

So a wonderful sister from our congregation invited some of the campaign guests who are here for dinner. I want to say there were about 25 people in her home last night. It was very beautiful to see. These were of the first group of visitors to be here. A few more arrived this week. Altogether we had ones from Wales, Australia, Korea, Japan, Canada, US, and Thailand represented. Sam, and La are from the gold coast of Australia. He owns a beautiful area of land that if anyone wants to go to Australia and go camping, it would be the perfect...

Dec 5, 2018 - Suprise

So I have been getting up at about 3 AM to go to a public area downstairs to start tutoring. It's been working good. I get a quiet space, good internet signal and I'm not waking everyone up. Then yesterday and today I go and take my morning walk. I usually will head towards a nearby market. Scout out various meats on a stick, and sticky rice. I found these things that looked like potatoes wedges from KFC. But they were breaded and what I thought was chicken turned out to be banana. A pleasant surprise. It was crispy, and soft an melty...

Dec 3, 2018 - Going too fast

Its hard to believe we only have 18 days left in this amazing country. It feels like 3 months have gone by so fast. The last 2 days have been special. We have the first of the visitors here for the campaign. Sunday after the meeting we had a special entertainment evening at the KH. Much like what would happen for an Assembly Hall during the time of an International Convention these days. They will have such every week for the campaign. Over the next 3 months there will be 124 from Korea, Australia, Japan, USA, Canada, Switzerland, The UK...

Nov 30, 2018 - Anna

We think we have figured out why Anna hasn't been feeling good. Jenny discovered Anna has a loose tooth. It may fall out soon. But underneath it is a new tooth trying to push through. But it hasn't broken the skin yet. So that should be good news. It would explain a few things liken why she hasn't wanted to eat. I did get her and Emily out today for a little walk. We went to our favorite lunch place. It has a waterfall, and green area. Quite a pleasant experience. I don't know the name of it. But if you walk past Tesco there is a noodle...

Nov 29, 2018 - Hello

Hello, just checking in. It's been an interesting week. I'm trying to get 2 online teaching jobs started. But it will take a little time to go through the initial stages. Plus the times I've been logging on the Internet servers seem to be down. Or being updated. So that hasn't helped. Anna's getting over a bit of a stomach virus. We don't think it's serious. But it's slow going away. Each day she's getting a little better.

Nov 25, 2018 - End of the week

The end of a wonderful week. Unfortunately Anna ended up getting fever after the meeting today. So her mommy stayed in tonight. The weather is changing again. Several in the kH seem to not be feeling great. Its been cooler,and windy which kicks up dust. So Im sure its messing with us all. The kingdom Hall was packed today. I didn't get a look at the attendance today, but it might have been near 100. We had a deaf Bible study cone today. As well as a visiting brother from Bangkok sign language. He came to visit Tamami and Toto, and help...

Nov 23, 2018 - Busy week

It's been a pleasant week. Today in the ministry I feel like everyone is getting tired. There is a relatively nice breeze blowing today. And everyone seemed to stoonlonger in shady spots. I thunk the highlight if the day was a nice old monk that had the biggest smile on his face. He is of course Bhuddist. But they often like to talk.He accepted literature, and just looked at me often with a smile. Toto and the monk reasoned a little. The main 5 laws and rules of Bhudhism actually come from the 10 commandments. Just not the commandments...

Nov 20, 2018 - CO visit

It's a wonderful week so far. We are enjoying a spiritual week. Last night the KH was packed. And the singing was loud. The CO and his wife are I'm guessing in their 60's. But very mild and humble. He has a pleasant smile. And I can tell he is a very loving brother. Today we went in the ministry. He has set the Fs meeting 10 minutes early. At 8:50 instead of 9.it gives an opportunity for us to meet and get to the territory without taking too long. I worked with Dreams Father today. We had fun. We talked to quite a few people. We probably...
