Day not really sure, it's tuesday here

Hi everybody! It's pretty hard trying to blog because everything is in thai..... but i figure it out. (does anyne know how to change it to english?)

Everyday we have a thai worship service from 9-10. all the women are required to come. we dont understand any of it, so we just sit and pray.

from 10-5 we work.
we have a lunsh break too.
yesterday we counted beads.

today we are not sure what we are doing. at two we are playing a game with the women.... sarah and i are incharge.... and tonight will be ur first night in the bars. we are excited and nervous.
ill let you guys know how that goes. please please pray for us though.

oh and if there is an older white male here, we have been told its normal to assume that he is here for prostitution, especially when he is holding hands with a young thai woman. sick.

Car- May the Lord use you mightily tonight as a bright beautiful beacon of light-a source of hope in a very dark place...I love you and am praying!

Oh I am crying right now...ah! I cant read my words...probably how you feel with the Thai internet!
I miss you a lot. Ryan left a message on my phone last night and he misses you too! We all love you, but know that it is incredible that you are in Thailand. Wow! I only wish I could be there with you. I'm such a mom- I want to be there to make sure you are ok. I need to trust that God will protect you, as you need to. How were the bars?? i cant wait to hear!
I emailed you on carly luvs jesus. I would like your mailing address please.
phil. 1:9-11

Sorry im not real savvy on this stuff... don't get out much. so here is what i said.
your life is a tremendous encouragement. i am proud of you.

And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, "Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses." Nehemiah 4:14

Carly (and Sarah!):

-I am praying for you!
-I am so glad you got to Thailand safe!
-I am REALLY proud of you.
-I second Melissa: we need your address!
-You are missed.
-Keep us posted!

Love to you both. My prayer is that God will use you as a light in the darkest corners of your city, and that He will bring hope to encourage your hearts as well. Keep me updated! And let me know if there's any specific snacks you want from the USA. =)
