Question of the day:
What language do you speak if you're an American in a Mexican restaurant in Thailand?
Weekends are nice, because we get a chance to relax and refresh. I haven't even been here a week, so at this point there isn't a whole lot that needs recuperating from, but once we really get into the throws of the school year, these weekends off will be just what we need. This afternoon I went swimming and enjoyed a nice lunch at a Mexican restaurant.
This morning we went to an English-speaking church in the area. Being in a country with huge Buddhist and Animistic influences can become very heavy on your soul, but it is very refreshing to be able to go somewhere and hear the truth of Scripture taught. That is what I hope to become with my students once classes begin. As a teacher in a Christian school, I will have all liberty to share the Word with my students. Please be praying with me for these children now, even before I meet them.
