Horrible Roads — Wonderful People
I gulped and swallowed hard, trying to beat down the waves of nausea that rose to swamp me. No use. Between the curvy mountain roads that were practically a series of u-turns and the deep ruts and holes that jarred us to the bone, motion sickness won, hands down.

We’ve been doing lots of medicine lately. Next week we will be leaving for a month in America (hurrah!). The children are already out of school and visiting their relatives in the mountains, so it’s a good time for us to go. Before we leave, we are trying to visit all the churches, bringing them messages of encouragement, making sure they know we will be back, and, of course, dispensing medicine.

I have lots of cleaning, shopping, and packing ahead this week –then a quick visit to see our loved ones on the other side of the world.We leave on March 23 and arrive there about 30 hours later. That’s longer than usual because of an unusually long layover in Korea.
We hope to see some of you there! Please pray for us on our journey, and for the precious people here in Thailand while we are gone.
