These last few days were spent in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Chiang Mai is in northern Thailand and known for its many Wats and handmade Crafts. Unfortunately, Nick got sick our first day in Chiang Mai (we think from something he ate) and we took the time needed for him to get better and get his strength back. The next day we visited a few factories where we saw how they made umbrellas, silk, jewelry, and ceramics. We also visited a few wats, including the famed Doi Suthep, a wat on the hilltop, overlooking Chiang Mai city. There are many Buddhist statues there and considered a bit of a "pilgrimage" for Buddhists. Nick and I both felt that we were to pray for the people there, both the avid Buddhists and also for the tourists visiting. We also visited The Agape Home Orphanage (one that Nick visited a few years ago) where they are doing amazing things for the orphans and sick mothers. Currently, they have about 70 orphans who have all been exposed to HIV from their mothers at birth. Right now, the ages range from 6 months to 16 years old and the Agape Home is willing to care for the children forever- no age is too old! I love that! Today, we are going back to The Agape Home to play with the kids again. Then later today, we leave for Bangkok, but only to fly to Cambodia. We will be in Cambodia for 2 weeks. Please continue to pray for our health, our safe travels, and the Lord's guidance for our trip.
