Greetings from Thailand!

We are here in Bangkok Thailand waiting for our visas to be processed before heading to India for outreach! We started our trip on Tuesday March 23 where we traveled from Belize to Cancun and spent the next day there. On Thursday morning we flew from Cancun to Philly, Philly to New York, New York to Qatar, and Qatar to Bangkok! We didn't get to Bangkok until Saturday morning! Needless to say we were all exhausted but have finally gotten over the jet lag.

Bangkok has been wonderful. We have had some great opportunities to do some ministry activities here so we are making the most of our time. We have done work in the slums; working primarily with elderly people. Earlier this week we took a trip out to visit some of the Buddhist temples and did a lot of intercessory prayer there. Today we got our hands dirty and picked up trash outside of the YWAM base where we are staying.

The Thai culture is great. I have absolutely loved the SPICY food, the cheapness of everything, and the warm and hospitable people here. Among some of the more adventurous things I've done are eating a grasshopper (yum!), having fish suck on my feet to remove the dirt (Thai style pedicure), and getting a Thai style massage (they use their feet and everything). Today I went and got my hair cut which cost about $4.50 US. It's crazy!

Anyways, things are going really well and we are loving it here but are definitely excited to move on to India to begin our actual outreach. We've been doing a lot of prayer about our time in India and actually feel led to spend more time in Delhi as opposed to Pune, which was the original plan. So, we will leave Bangkok on Tuesday and head to Pune for about a week, then go up to Delhi. Our exact work there is still being determined but we are really praying into it and trusting that God will lead us!

That's all for now! Happy Easter to you!
