More Shopping Adventures

Success!  I not only got off in the right area this time, I got off on the exact street.  That’s a big improvement from getting off three miles away!  But, that’s the end of the story. Monday was a quiet,…

Sunday at Long Koad

The children  lined up with eager faces, holding their bowls.  They had a special treat for Sunday morning breakfast.  Ramen noodles — or their equivalent.  Yes, Brother Anond went down the line handing out a package of noodles to each…

Friday Adventures at the Grocery Story

Another lovely day in Thailand. Would you like to follow us through our day Friday? We awoke early — about 4 a.m. That isn’t early, here, though. The children have their devotions with Bro. Anond at 5 a.m. He said…

Sunday at Bethany

The smell of woodsmoke wafted through the open windows and the gaps in the bamboo walls, and my bare feet ached a little from the rough cement floor of the church at Bethany.  This church is smaller and poorer than…

An Eventful Saturday

Every day is an adventure! We were up at 4 a.m., as usual — but that is nothing special here.  The kids have devotions at 5 a.m., then eat breakfast, do chores, and are off to school at 6:30.  Bro….
