Doing Some Chores


We had the privilege to spend New Year’s Day in Chiang Rai with our neighbors’ extended family. New Year’s Day is big family holiday in Thailand, so we were honored that Brasong and Nong invited us to join them at Nong’s mother’s house. We spent the day talking, watching the girls play hide-and-seek with the older kids, and seeing some local sites. It was so great to join them for a homemade meal (pictured above) with aunts, uncles, and cousins. It was Thai style where everyone sits on mats and shares everything. The girls weren’t into much of it, but luckily they had sticky rice–old faithful. The highlight for us was when the parents said that all the kids get to do the dishes. The teenage girls invited Brynn to help them, which she was excited to do. Meg was quick to follow. A few minutes later we walked out to the back porch, where they were washing the dishes, and we were amazed that the were actually helping, and enjoying it. The older kids were so nice to include them. The video below will give you a glimpse. You’ve got to love to the flexibility and adventurous nature of these two little girls. We were so proud of how they handled themselves in this completely foreign situation. It was a great New Year’s.

  4. God had used the verses in Ephesians in my life this week. During pyarer time He had led me to pray for my family by name, all of them, those same verses. To open our eyes, to show us the greatness of His power toward us who believe. I then prayed for my church family. He knew all the names. As I prayed the verses in Ephesians for my family, and church family, He blessed me with His presence and the knowledge that this is His will. He wants to do this for us, even more than we want it. He desires to open our eyes.
