Thailand Episode 7--Winding Down

Today we went on yet another touristy adventure, visiting the umbrella factory where you see how the paper parasols are made and also can get pictures hand-painted on any surface you want.  So we got them to paint an elephant on Paul's Bible cover, a tiger on Steven's computer case, and so on.

Life in Thailand has been more than fun and fluff and fellowship, just so you know.

But a lot of projects going on all around will be more successful if they aren't broadcasted online, so it feels like I'm rattling on about stuff that doesn't matter as much and silent about stuff that does.

I mean, JUST HYPOTHETICALLY HERE, if you were taking supplies into a prison camp in that country north of South Korea, you probably wouldn't post on Facebook, "Slipped past the guards with 25 pounds of medicine and a bunch of grenades, ha ha ha."

Not that anyone is venturing into N***h Korea.

Some places aren't open to change or help of any kind, or of the truth being told, shall we say.

So I decided not to name names or tell stories of that nature.

But when you get to Heaven you need to sit around with some of these people and hear all their stories.

Meanwhile I post about elephants and food and hot weather and shopping.  Which are also important in their own way, I guess.

We leave at midnight tomorrow night.

Thank you so very very much for all your interest, encouragement, and prayers.


  1. No one could ever accuse you of being lazy or wasting time! And I've so enjoyed hearing about all your adventures.

  2. Me too! Thanks. God bless your flight(s) home.
