Coming back to this place of love and peace is like coming home…. I have never felt so at home in a place that isn’t my home!! Unlike Zac Barr, who has beaten me to the second Blog of our life here, I am not doing split shifts. I am just a split person….. This week I have nursed babies and cooked in the kitchen, where I am finally learning the ingredients in thai. Many thanks to the cook who won’t allow me to put anything in the wok unless I can say it in thai, with out any help from her. Those of you who know me will know not being able to cook kills me so Lumdooin has found my weak spot and I am finally learning thai!!!!!
Praise the Lord…..I have hugged toddlers and I have eaten guava with Cepah in the MBU, my favorite place to be. And lastly and most excitingly, I got to clean copious amounts of rice porridge one poor little man vomited from one side of the room to the other (no pictures of that, yuck!). Hallelujah…..
Life at Agape is never still. There are always children going somewhere – to school, to work, to college, sometimes unfortunately to hospital, to church, to eat!!! Very important time, to eat!!!! The food here is fresh, wholesome and wonderful to eat. Why not consider donating some funds to help the kitchen. Anyone from my church be warned, we are having a rice rally when I come home. 🙂
The weather is warming each day as teams from USA, Japan, and Australia are preparing to come and visit Agape. Team time is exciting and for many, it’s an introduction to working within another culture, in a safe environment. Perhaps consider it yourself.
A special hello and thank you to those who have encouraged me on this new adventure… BLOGGING…. It works, the world hears about AGAPE. The day after my first blog was published I met Fran at Agape…she is from Canada and was visiting for the day and is now back home……..how cool is that??? Hi Fran!
1 Corinthians 11: 12-13
The body is a unit, though it is made of many parts and though all its parts are many, there for one body. So it is with Christ for we were all baptized with one spirit into one body – whether jew or greek, slave or free and we are all given the one spirit to drink.
I feel this scripture encapsulates how the volunteers and staff work together at Agape home. Every morning as the rooster over the fence wakes me at about 3am. I wake with a smile knowing it is going to be a good day. And the days only get better here. Every day is a privilege to serve at Agape.
What do you have to say to all of this? I would be so grateful for a note from you here. Ka!
