Thank you for remembering us in prayer as we get settled into our new surroundings in Bangkok and begin ministry. This past month we enjoyed a long delayed vacation, and good times of fellowship and teaching at OMF Thailand’s annual conference.
Welcome to the Concrete Jungle
Right after conference we hired a truck and got all our stuff out of storage in Central Thailand for the big move to Bangkok. Just about everything was covered in heaps of dust and the hired hands who came with the truck weren’t exactly careful movers. In any case, a couple weeks later we still have boxes and bags everywhere, and are often not sure where our things are. And because Bangkok is SO big and busy, we’re often not sure where to buy things in the area around us either. There are so many shops, big and small, tucked away into the concrete clefts and crevices of this expansive city that it is hard to know where to find this or that. Folks at the seminary have been helpful in pointing us in the right direction, but it is often still intimidating to try to find anything in the maze of roads. The signage confuses us and it only takes one missed turn to get severely turned around.
