The Cafe on the Ground floor

Bright and early after breakfast, we embarked on a 15 min brisk walk to Our Home Chapel, home base to the Foursquare Church in Thailand.   We were warmly greeted & introduced to the various staff that run the show, as well as got a taste of what was served in their brand new cafe.  From English teachers to ministry & admin personnel, everyone had a story on how his/her life came to be in Christ. The rest of the was the morning had us in a detailed briefing for the Freshy English Camp we’ll be attending & helping at next week.  Bangkok is home to the largest university in the world, with a student population of over 400,000 students: a great well &  harvest ground for outreach.  We are to  be the bridges in these relationships that we are yet to form at camp, to help connect the campers to the Thai staff & to share Jesus in a relevant way that will be meaningful to them.

We finally decided to hit the Mall by 3pm.  There were those who braved the walk under the hot sun & there were those to chose to go by car…however, I think we got there around the same time thanks to city traffic!

Flea Market under tents.

Flea Market under tents. Great deals both inside the Mall & outside under the tents at the flea market. There was something for everyone...I think.

After shopping (we caught a cab back by the way), we toured the rest of the Home Chapel Study Center where English classes for various age groups were going on.  We visited with the children & practiced speaking English with them.  A group sang the Thai national anthem while we sang ours.  We played games, asked & answered questions…& of course, laughed a lot!

Shaka!!
