Besides sending the rains, God has also been sending abundant opportunities for friendships our way. Brian now meets once a week with Keo, a young man we met while running on the exercise track at one of Lopburi’s many army camps. (We realize that exercising at the army camp sounds a little strange, but it is a beautiful track!) Brian practices Thai, and Keo practices English.
Across the street from us is a sweet-spirited Thai woman named Pittayapohn whom Bekah is getting to know.
We are also forming a friendship with a young couple from whom we buy iced coffee on really hot days. ҉ Their daughter is just a little younger than Karis.
Our Thai is so limited, and Buddhist thought patterns are so different from ours, that at times we feel it is just a dream for any of these new friends to become Christians during our year of language school. BUT we are asking for their salvation from “him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think.”
