Lahu Mission Trip 2010 (8th-14th April)

Postby yehosaphat » Wed Apr 21, 2010 10:21 am

Dearest Bro n sis, this year's Lahu missionary trip has been a refreshing and rewarding trip for both our Lahu bros n sis and all of us. This is our third year in Saenmango church and it is God's grace and love that we have seen so many lives being changed and revived this year through this short missionary trip. Here are some photos to share which can only tell so much of the wonderful and amazing experiences we have encountered with them and with our almighty God. Took over 1000+ photos so its not easy to sort them out so do have patience with me ;)

#1 - Flew up with the main batch of bro and sis on 8th April. Welcome first timers and Pastor John!
Image

#2 - Our early morning flight at budget terminal
Image

#3 - By the time we reached Chiangrai, it was past noon. Waited for pickup with hungry stomachs, but manage to force a smile ;)

#7 - This is where we are.. Chiangrai, Thailand. Before we get to engrossed in our food and acitvites. I took some time to ponder how God led us here. The place, the people, their lives.
Image

#8 - Ok.. back to our schedules. Hmm... pirated Vitagen?? Joking hee...
Image

#9 - As usual, we would start our preparation at Makro buying all the stuff and food we need for the camp. Those chicken wings you see here.. were gone after we finished gathering them into our trolleys!
