Mission Trip to Mae Sai, Thailand

Today is Friday, and we left Mae Sai a couple hours ago by bus, and now we’re at the bus station in Chiang Rai about to meet some people to go to a mountain village for the weekend. Here’s some of what happened the last couple days in Mae Sai…

The most northern part of Thailand, very near to the Myanmar (Burma) border...

On Wednesday morning, we started out with the kids at Home of Grace at 6:30am with worship, Bible teaching and prayer.  After we walked with them to school, we visited and prayed for sick and hurting people, some were very extreme cases.

We're believing she's healed and God will be massively glorified from this testimony.

That afternoon we visited and prayer-walked a huge Buddhist temple overlooking Burma (Myanmar).

We met up with the kids after school, walked with some of the kids to Chinese school (about half also attend this six days a week in addition to regular Thai school five days a week).  Then we went with the rest of the kids to a park and played. That night at Home of Grace we did our drama, shared testimonies, and had a big dance party.  It was awesome!

On Thursday morning, after prayer and worship time with the kids, we prayer-walked around the streets of Mae Sai.  That afternoon we explored a large market area, finding some snacks and treats for the kids at Home of Grace. We spent some quality time together at a coffee shop, then connected with the kids at Home of Grace for English lessons.  It was a blast.  Those kids are so smart!

Cameron bought necklaces for the girls in this picture at the market.

And that brings us to Friday, today as I write this.  We had a good time with the kids before school this morning, and some good team time together before we left Mae Sai.

Now we’re heading to a mountain village that a few of the girls from Home of Blessing are from, and they’ll be joining us for this weekend’s ministry.  We’ll be staying with a family there, and everyone seems to be very excited about it on all ends.
