I am ashamed….

I haven’t updated this in FOREVER! Crazy…

I would like to apologize for that, and then smoothly move on to resuming. 🙂

so here is a post that I’ve used already on my facebook, but I think I’ll re-use it for this. Here we are:

“Well! Everyone! I’m finally back where there is internet! I can communicate with you! I’ve been a bit disappointed that I have had no time to do smaller updates, but electricity/internet is not a sure thing where I was. So. I shall do a nice little review of my entire outreach for you! (Hopefully I get it pretty much all right) (oh, and the week numbers are approximations.) Week 1-2: Thailand. The main things of this week were the kids camp and Song Kran. At the kids camp, we were helping out a Thai Christian kids camp by doing activities, sharing our testimonies, singing songs, teaching art and drama, and helping do worship. We learned a valuable lesson at the kids camp: BE FLEXIBLE. It is amazing how every plan we made did NOT happen, but we just had to deal with it and roll with the punches. In the end, what was important was how the kids saw our team. Were we displaying patience, or were we letting the difficult situations get us down? This would prove to be a consistent theme throughout the outreach. Song Kran: handed out evangelical dvds as blessings to people at the huge water festival here in Chiang Mai. It was super fun! Week 4-5: India North V. We helped out with a bunch of different things up north. We stayed at a guest house, and almost every morning we went to a school/widow’s home to help out there. My favorite thing we did was paint a nice mural for the school. I’ll show a photo once I get myself organized. We also showed the Hindi evangelical movie to the widows and at a leper colony. I fainted at the leper colony. That was humbling. I had always thought I wasn’t bothered by blood and stuff, but as soon as they showed us how to clean the limbs of the lepers there, I fell to a crouch and desperately needed a bathroom. How embarrassing. I thought I was so tough. 😛 Another favorite thing there was to visit house churches and worship with the people there. Indian people are so hospitable! Us westerners can surely learns a thing or two from Indian culture. And that’s partly why we were there. Not to come knowing all the answers, but to come saying “I am interested in you. Teach me, please!”

There it is. 🙂
