Market Places and a COOL STORY!!

Hi everyone and thank you for being so understanding about last week!!

So, today about THAILAND!!!

So, we got to go to these really cool market places where we would hand out tracts and pray for people.

We went to this one market and my Mom felt like she was suppose to tell this one girl working there that she is like a rose.  She didn’t know but, she got a translator and told her that.  She said that was her favorite flower, even though roses are not native to Thailand, and we got to be able to pray for her.  I am really glad my Mom did that because that could  have changed that girl’s life forever.

We also went to this Sunday night market which was pretty cool. We got to drink out of a real coconut, eat at a two-story McDonald’s, see a little girl dancing, singers, guitarists, a person playing a violin, and even a guy playing a junk-made trash set!!

There was so many cool things!

Here are some pics:

The first is of my Mom, my sister, and the coconut. ( Can’t leave the coconut out.)  🙂

The second is of me, my sister, and one of our friends at the market. 🙂

Also, we got to go to a cat cafe!  It is a cafe where you  can order lemonades, coffee, and other stuff plus, there are bunch of cats everywhere!!  You could pet them and play with them too.   I got a strawberry lemonade and so did my sister. Our friend that took us, well, I don’t remember what she got.  It was a lot of fun!!

Here are some pics!!

The first is of me and a cat at the cafe.

Well, that is all for today.

Taking a Break This Week but, coming back next week!!

Elephants and Markets

Hi everyone and I hope you have all had a wonderful week!!

Today, I am going to tell you about what we did on our fun day in Thailand  🙂

Anyways,  on our fun day, we took a break from doing mission work that day and we got to do something awesome.

We went to an elephant sanctuary!!  We had to drive for awhile and we even stopped for tea, coffee, and a bathroom break but, then we were back on the road!

When we got there, before we met the elephants we wore this shirts that was similar to the shirts the people wore in that area.    Now, I think you want to meet the elephant family, right?

So, there was one male, two females, and one younger female(  think a kid elephant. )    We were also lucky enough because one of the female elephants was pregnant!!  You could actually see the baby moving inside of her, it was kind of cool!

We got to feed them sugarcane and bananas.  I got to touch the male’s tusks.  They were super smooth!

Here are some cool pics.!!

 

The first is of a friend of ours, my sister, and one of the missionaries.

Then we got to go into the big mud hole and we got to give them mud baths!   We would spread mud all over their backs and they really liked that.  What do you do after playing in the mud?  You have a bath, of course.  🙂  We went down to a small creek and got bowls and through water at them to wash them off. An elephant also sprayed us with its trunk!  We ate a delicious lunch and then went back to our hotel.  It was an awesome fun day that I will never forget.

We got to see such beautiful and wonderful creatures that God created.  I love seeing his beautiful and wonderful creations.  We also need to remember that we are his creations too and created in the likeness of him.  In Ephesians 2:10, it says ” 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” 

That is such an incredible thing!

Thank you for praying for the people of Thailand.  This week, let’s pray for all the missionaries in Thailand and all that they are doing.   I will talk about markets next week because there was so much going on in this post.

NEXT WEEK:  Markets and stories

THE WEEK AFTER:   Villages PART 1

See you then!!

Sah wah dee khaa ( Which is what women say to say hello) :)

Hello everyone and welcome back to another post about Thailand.

 

I thought you might want to know a tiny bit more of their culture before going on.

First, to say hello in Thai is..

  • Men say hello with: sah wah dee khrap! (short and sharp finish)
  • Women say hello with: sah wah dee khaa… (drawn out finish)

Also, when you are saying hello, you put your hands together and do a slight bow, like shown in the picture below.

I found the pic. and the info on:  https://www.tripsavvy.com/how-to-say-hello-in-thai-1458400

Wai in Thailand

The main religion there is Buddhism and the language is Thai.  They are ruled by a king.  There are cities and villages.  Also, it is impolite to show the bottoms of one’s feet or to touch the top of another person’s head.  The head is considered sacred while the bottom’s of your feet are considered dirty.

 

These are just a couple of facts to get you started. 🙂

 

While we were in Thailand, we went to one of the biggest temples in Chaing Mai, the city we were in, to see what they believed.  It was sad but, we went to Thailand on a mission trip to share the love of Jesus with others.

 

Here are some other pictures from the temple:

Above is a picture of a giant staircase leading to the temple.  Also, there is a couple of other pictures.

 

Anyways, we also went on many different outreaches.  We went to one of the university’s there in Chaing Mai.   We were able to pray for different people.  One time,  me, my Dad, a translator, and another team member got to pray for this one student.  We got to pray for them and then tell them about the Thai church there.  We went to markets and handed out tracts.

 

We also went to malls.  We would go and pray for people there too and sharing the love of Jesus everywhere we went.   Here are a couple of more pictures, before I wrap up.

 

Enjoy!!

From left to right)   There is me, my Mom, my sister. and the my Dad. I am pretty sure we are at one of the Thai markets.

 

NEXT TIME: We get to meet a family of elephants and go to markets.  Also, anther cool story!

NEXT NEXT TIME:  We go to villages and Jesus moves in such a powerful way!!

 

Stay tuned!  I hope you enjoyed this week’s post!

 

This week, let’s pray for the people in Thailand and the missionaries there.   I pray right now, that the love of Jesus will touch the people of Thailand’s heart and that they may know you as the true God and the King above all Kings.

 

-This is Kaelyn and may you life be filled with joy and worship to Jesus!!

BYE!  🙂

THAILAND TIME!!!!!!!!!!

IMG_3146.JPG

 

 

WELCOME TO MY FIRST EVER POST ON MY MISSION TRIP TO THAILAND!!

It was in the year 2016 and it was summertime.  It was my first ever mission trip and I was exited!!

We first had to drive to the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport.    We then had to get on an airplane to Qatar,  it was like a 15 hour flight!!  NO JOKE!!   We then had a flight to Bangok, Thailand which was about 8-10 hours.   Finally, about 30 min. – 1 hour flight to Chaing Mai, Thailand, our final detestation.

 

We got out of the airport with our team to meet the missionaries there.   We all then got into sun-cows(  That is how they sound but, a bit more Asian. 🙂 )   They are like a van with the back completely open with benches on each side.  Here is a pic:

This is my family in the back of one.  From left to right, it is my Mom, my sister, our missionary friend, my Dad, and then me.  Also, at the top of this post you will find a picture of a part of one of the biggest temples in Chaing Mai, Thailand.  We visited it while we were there to see what the Thai believed.

Anway, on our sun-cow( I don’t really know how to spell them. LOL!! ) , we went to our hotel which was really quite nice.   Thailand was a developing country for sure.  While the city was quite modern the villages were not.   Amway, our hotel had a pool, a coffee shop, and a really nice breakfast cafe type of thing.

After our first night, we went to breakfast and we also took off our shoes.  In their country and other countries, people take off their shoes  before entering some places.

Here is a picture of me on our first morning there:

I felt pretty rested even though it was a 12 hour time difference, from home!!

IMG_3248.JPG

Also, here is a picture of us at a Thailand market.  We would do a lot of outreaches there. We would pray for people and hand out tracts.  It was a  great place to tell others about Jesus.  I am in the macaroon shirt.  🙂

 

I hope you enjoy my first post about Thailand.

 

THERE IS WAY MORE!!!

 

That was a two-week trip so, a lot can happen.  See you next week!!
