Thailand – Day 3
It is now early morning on Day 4, but here is a summary of our adventures on Monday:
After a wonderful breakfast, we piled into 3 trucks and a van for the start of our drive. The area is so beautiful – mountains, all types of trees, farm land on the side of hills, cows along the side of the road and intermittent rain.
As the roads became harder ot travel, we had to leave the comfort of the van behind and squeeze into the 3 trucks. This includes four young ladies sitting on top of luggage and supplies in the truck bed. They road in this style for a few hours, and thank goodness, it didn’t rain. For those of you who have been on the Mexico mission trip, these roads were equally filled with potholes, curves and excitement.
After unpacking, we were served a wonderful meal, then to bed.
We arrived at Bueng Klueng after dark, so we are just waking up to the beauty. After breakfast, we are hiking to another village and spending the night there.
My scripture reading today is so fitting – to everyone, no matter what situation you are in:
Psalms 9:9-10, The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
May you find His peace today.
Yesterday we left Mae Sot and travelled through the mountains to Bueng Klueng. We loaded up 15 people, medical, dental and art supplies into 4wd drive trucks. With Burma on our right and Thailand on our left we made the trek through the crazy curved road leading us here to BK. This village sits right on the border.
We arrived, unloaded and had a late dinner with members of the community. Due to the heat, many of us chose to sleep outside on the deck of the training center. We fall asleep to a massive rainstorm.
This morning we are up and preparing to hike to a more remote village. We will not have access to internet for a few days. We would love your prayers.
