Team FBC from Visalia, CA

This past weekend, a team from Faith Baptist Church in Visalia, California came to minister in Kabinburi. FBC is the sending church of our ABWE missionary friends, Rick & Lisa Caynor. Here are pictures of their time with us.

The team arrived on Friday afternoon and did odd jobs
for us like: putting down rocks on the driveway...
... and cleaning our whole house/ministry building.
Saturday ministry day started with a game.
Telling the story of Samson with a Biblical moral application.
Learning a praise song.
Teen English class.
On Sunday afternoon, we all drove down to Cha-Am (three hours south of Bangkok) to help the Caynors prepare their building for moving in. On the team's last day there, Kelli (a team member) got baptized in the Gulf of Thailand. Kelli really desired to be baptized by Rick as the Caynors were instrumental in her spiritual growth. Ed and Pastor Aang assisted in the baptism.

Another English Camp, Another Opportunity

On June 29th, we were given another opportunity to get our faces and names known in the community when we helped out in an English camp at a public school about half an hour from us. Sixty kids from five different elementary schools participated in a government funded/issued English camp. All the teachers pretty much let us "go for it" for the entire day, allowing us to change whatever we wanted to in their pre-set program and schedule. How gracious, they are! They were so excited and honored to have native English speakers come and teach the children. Our co-worker, Jenni Starkey, was able to take the day off school to help us out.

Seventh and Eight-graders who were not part of the camp played and babysat our three boys for the whole day. The boys enjoyed interacting with Thai kids - playing with toys and computer games, or just chatting with them.
