Thailand: first thoughts

Hey folks!

So here's me being real with ya'll, which is kind of hard for me, but here you go: what sticks out to me most about Thailand is all the little things that remind me of the middle east. As some of you know, I spent 11 of my growing up years in Dubai. Obviously, Thailand is really different. But there are these little things that keep poping up that are like, "BAM." Some of the plants, the Nissans and Sazukis, the weather 🙂

But at the same time, like I said, it is very different here in Phuket. Some of the SHE staff talked to us about what we will be doing, dos and don'ts, stuff like that, and a little later, we prayed as a team. It's got me to thinking about what a crazy battle ground we are going to be stepping onto. I don't know about ya'll, but spiritual warfare isn't something I think about all the time. Not never, just not often. But this one area of Patong, these couple of streets, contains so many human vices that the enemy uses to attack us humans. Lust, self-gratification, looking for love in the wrong places, a lack of God-given dignity and self-worth, greediness, love of money, and so many others that the people that come to this area embrace and live with every day. Satan is deeply entrenched in Patong. And God is asking SHE and all those who volunteer with them to fight this with His love. One of the staff members, Liz, said that SHE is founded on prayer. So I just ask that you all would be covering this ministry and all the teams and individuals here with prayer. Please pray.

But Satan is not restricted to Phuket. God has called us all to pray and love where He has us. Life itself is our missions field, where ever we are. So I just want to encourage you all to be seeking God's face and spreading His love where you are.
