The Korat zoo is a great place to vacation. If you're in Thailand and need a place to rest and relax, this is the place. But I'm not here to vacation. It all started in March...
In March, I was planning on going to Saraburi (Thailand) to visit the Adventist university there. I was so excited! Term break came around, and I was sick. In fact, I was so sick I ended up in the hospital for a day. Needless to say, I didn't go to Saraburi.
Then Pi Mai Lao break came around (that would be this week). I wasn't sure if I'd go to Luang Prabang (north of Lao) for the break, or maybe go to Pakse (south of Lao), or maybe I'd go to Cambodia and visit Angkor Wat. I got an email that changed all those plans.
You've been invited to join the Children's Ministry Team for the 2013 Asia retreat!We will be responsible for programming for 24 children, seven hours a day for five days, plus Sabbath Schools on both weekends and a 15 minute presentation for worship on the second Sabbath.
I'm now in Korat, Thailand, living in a zoo for ten days, taking care of 18-20 children, and sharing a cabin with two amazing people (love you Ebby and Rachel!). The food is amazing, the kids are a blast, and the chance to to spend time with other people who work in Aisa is so encouraging. I'm glad it worked out for me to come here. It's so much better for my character than going on a real vacation. And I might get a chance to go to Pakse or Luang Prabang before I leave. Even if I don't, where God wants me is the best place to be.
