Annemarie: InterChange Thailand Update #5

Posted May 13, 2019

This update is brought to you by the letter A, as in Annemarie.

On Thursday we went down to one of the red light districts in Bangkok to visit a mission called Nightlight. This mission focuses on helping Thai women get out of the sex trade by giving them a job with a stable salary, like sewing, making jewelry, or baking. They also work with foreign women who have been trafficked into Thailand, helping them get back to their home country, or if it is not safe there, to another country as a refugee.

Jaclyn: InterChange Thailand Update #4

Posted May 10, 2019

Today's update is from Jaclyn: 

I constantly get the realization that we are in Thailand – like actually across the globe, which blows my mind and just over a week ago we were in Edmonton. A lot has happened since we’ve come to Thailand, and a lot of things that we had heard about in preparation became so much more real. Not just a story anymore – real hurting & loving people.

LEAH: INTERCHANGE THAILAND UPDATE #3

Posted May 8, 2019

Today's thought brought to you by the town of LaCrete, Alberta and written by Leah.

I find it hard to believe we’ve been in Thailand for 5 days already, but at the same time it’s nearly impossible to think it has only been 5 days. We have already seen and experienced so much here, including the terrifying responsibility of attempting to order your own meals while knowing little to none of the language. 

Sarah: InterChange Thailand Update #2

Posted May 7, 2019

We are currently four hours outside of Bangkok. Sarah is today's writer. She gives you an overview of our experience on Monday, beginning in Bangkok. 

We had an early start to the morning as we went out with missionaries to the local market to find breakfast. We all purchased a couple of items and headed back to her house to share our findings. We enjoyed a variety of doughnuts, fruits, meat and a rice dish. Over breakfast we enjoyed the company of Nate and Sarah’s family and were able to learn more about their life in Thailand.
