Idol-Mart

Here all over the city of Khorat and the cities of Thailand, there are stores that sell idols, temples, golden Buddhas, statues of Lady Mo, spirit houses, and more.  John and I stopped by one when we were making one of our motorcycle excursions around the city.  As we...

Opposition and Breakthroughs

We set out yesterday to visit a few people.  One of them was a man who had believed in Jesus but had been confused by the teaching of the “men on the bikes.”  It had been many months since Ben had connected with this man, so we decided that today would be...

Our Friend’s First Big Test

On the Streets of Khorat

Missions and Running

My friend John Lovorn runs 3x a week near his home in Thailand for exercise.  Nothing strange there.  But how he does it is what’s strange or maybe even hardcore.  He runs 8 miles at one of the hottest parts of the day on a main highway!  I knew he was a runner,...

Shocked for an Assignment

Seeing the realities of society can be shocking.   But shocks have the power to move us.  A little shock could get us moving when we are feeling satisfied, but shouldn’t be.  It could bring us back to life if we’re dead to the reality of the world we live...
