Here are some pictures from my last trip to Asia. I left on April 4th with 27 people, most of whom are doing an internship program at my home church, Christian Life Assembly in Langley, BC.
We first flew into Hong-Kong and then the team made a few trips into mainland China. The mission was successful!! Thank you Jesus!!!
The Thai team that I co-led with Avin worked with Imagine Thailand in Mae Sot, a town that runs a long the Burmese Border. We were originally going to help with a massive youth Camp in a refugee camp but our plans changed so we did a 4 day Camp at a Karen School. It was a great time that Dave and Loralee Hanson with Imagine Thailand helped organize.
We played lots of freeze tag, duck, duck goose, some pretty sweet kids songs with actions, crafts of all kinds, Bible lessons and even had a graduation type ceremony for the kids, followed by Ice Cream and in Thai tradition, joined in the 'Song Krahn'
(A nation wide water fight) spirit, and had a big water fight ourselves!
We visited a Church in Chonburi where Justin Reimer preached and after that rode Elephants in Pattaya and ate dinner by the Ocean,
After the CLA team left for Canada, Avin and myself visited my friends in Sriracha, where I lived for 5 years. Then we headed to Poipet to visit Harley and the rest of our Church family. It Was a brief but really good visit and its awesome to see how Jesus is continuing to change lives there and build His church.
After we spent time in Bangkok visiting Avins friends and fellow missionaries and got to ECB on Easter Morning.
Thanks for praying for us.
