two weeks!

In two weeks, I will begin my journey to southeast Asia. I will be living in border village in Thailand for a little over three months. I'll be teaching farming in an orphanage and working on landscaping the orphanage grounds.

Two nights ago my community group at Barefoot threw a going away party for me. It was great. I was able to say goodbye to some good friends, eat some real tasty Thai food, and share about my trip. I was able to talk about the orphanage and the children I am going to teach.

These children are from a forgotten people group. They aren't allowed to get passports or leave their country, but they also aren't really allowed to stay there. They are an extremely persecuted people. These children have witnessed their parents death because of their ethnicity. They have no one. This is about as much as I know now about these children, but I'm really looking forward to getting to know each of them and learning their stories as well.

Thanks for the prayers so far and please continue to pray for the children, the nations, and my team in SE Asia.

  2. It still blows my mind that it's only two weeks away. Clint and I will both be praying over all of that while you're there. I love you!

  4. Hi Maggie. This is Sandy. I just wanted you to know that I received the journal today. I'm glad you enjoyed it and I'm sure you will enjoy the other three journals in the series. I just wanted to say even though I have not known you that long, I think you are one of the most amazing and lovely people I have ever met. You seem so sure and confident in yourself and that is so beautiful. Enjoy your "adventure" and know you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Take care of yourself.
