Hello Everyone!, Outreach is officially over, and we have returned to New Zealand. This week we closed relationships, processed what God has done, sought God about the future, celebrated the goodness of God and His faithfulness during our DTS, and graduated! This DTS has changed my life for eternity. God had showed himself so faithful to me, his son. He showed me that He has always loved me and always will and nothing will separate me from His love. He healed ...
... I find out the artist used white color to represent Buddha's purity. The small mirrors symbolize Buddha's teachings that people should search their own minds and "reflect" kindness to others. The entire large buildings and statues on the grounds are connected with riddles, Buddhist philosophy and teachings. A bridge leading to the temple takes me over a pond surrounding the temple, where dozens of white and black fish swim, guarded by statues of ...
... I will look for some. I am grateful that nothing happened to us and Juan did a wonderful job of protecting me. So in the end I am grateful. Tommorow we plan to go to Chang Rai.

I was flying with Norwegian Air from Edinburgh to Bangkok via Stockholm. Despite a bit of a slightly panicky start involving a sprint to the gate after I heard my name being called whilst still in the toilet, the Edinburgh to Sweden flight was amazing and I was beyond excited to find that there was free Wifi internet on board!

Anyway, we wanted to get back into the centre and out the other side to a national park where we'd seen on trip advisor as there being some waterfalls/ areas to swim. 1st Sŏrngtăaou said 400, we had in our head 200, he wast having it, down to 300, then away we walked.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMaekok River Village Resort Thaton
We would highly recommend this resort. Every attention to detail was made. The grounds were beautiful, the service was superb, the food was marvelous, the owners and staff so genuine and helpful. Yet it felt so much like old Thailand all around you - the gentle fog around the hills and mountains, the gently flowing Maekok River at your door, the stillness and silence of small town Thaton, yet the call from the Wats in the hills made the experience almost otherworldly and magical.
