Busy, Busy Bee

I apologize for the small sabbatical from posting on my blog. We have been very busy with students as well as the Internet going out for a few days. That was a little stressful trying to figure out how to fix it, but it finally started working today!

This past week was a little bit of a blur. We were warned by another CCP team from Birmingham that the second week would fly by, and to our surprise, it definitely did. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night we had the chance to hang out with three different groups of friends play games, eat good food and get to know each other. Tonight [friday night], Sano had bought some desserts and we walked to girls dorms and said hello and talked for a little bit.

One highlight of our weeks was that Stephanie, Courtney, Sano and I had the opportunity to teach English to 3 girls on Thursday night. I definitely think the English language is one of the more challenging ones to learn after this night. While we had so much fun teaching them conversational questions, it was very challenging. We will get to teach these girls every Thursday for a long as they want to show up.

Just real quick, I will give you all a tentative schedule of what our weeks look like: [it was always subject to change at the last minute.
Sunday- 12:00 Lunch at Church
1:00 Worship with Thai community
1:30 Break-off for Perspective time [in English]
2:30-? Hang out wit students, eat fruit and play games
The rest of the night the team usually goes out to dinner or something
Monday- Sleep in :)
Lunch with girls/whole team
4:00 Go to student center/campus to hang out with students
Tuesday- 9:00 Mission Training [Taught by Marc Lewis]
10:30 Pray/ Schedule with ministry team
11:15-2 On campus meeting students
2:00-5:00 Need Of The Hour/Rest
5:00 Back on Campus/Dinner with students
Wednesday- 9:00- CCP Training
Same as Tuesday
Thursday- Same as Wednesday
Friday- Same as Thursday
Saturday- Morning is free/CCP Social [usually at night]

So, that is basically what my week looks like, however, it changes almost every single day. Some days we will get a 4 hour break in the middle of the day and other days we won't get a break at all. But, I like the spontaneity and go with the flow kind of attitude that most Thai people have. Until next time...
