We're on our last full day here. Tomorrow evening we fly home. Yea!!! It's been long, but good. The night train from Chiang Mai was an experience-- not too uncomfortable, but noisy. I didn't sleep that well. They never turned off the lights and I couldn't close my curtain because it got too hot. At 4:30 in the morning I remembered that I had an eye mask in my purse, dug it out, and did a little better, but I was very stiff in the morning.
We visited Global English School on Tuesday. It's a Christian school, full of Buddhists mostly. They have to pay for the education and send their kids there because it teaches English. They also teach Christianity. It was a big contrast from many of the other ministries we've seen thata minister to the poor and outcast. But, the rich people need Christ too. Thailand is a country that is about 99% Buddhist, especially here in Bangkok. We might try to visit a Buddhist temple tomorrow before we leave.
We also traveled down the main river by water taxi. Bangkok has its share of traffic issues, so water taxi is a much nicer way to travel. Ate dinner in a mall.
On Wednesday we taught English to some college students in half hour segments. Our group taught US geography and had them practice answering/asking questions. These college students were 20-22, had 3 more years of school, were mostly tech students, had never had jobs, and had horrible English, but it was still fun.
In the afternoon we visited a ministry that does gospel presentations in the schools and then follows it up with a correspondence Bible course for kids. The schools are open to these presentations, and they're having a small impact.
Katy seems to be at the end of her rope, not feeling well this morning. Pray for her.
