Greetings from Thailand,
Ok, lets go back to the beginning of the week. On sunday afternoon most of us guys and several of the girls played ultimate. The problem was that the field still had water on it from a recent rain that we had. The rainy season started not to long ago. We played anyway!! Oh what fun we had!! I’m still debating whether to post pictures of that or not!!!

On Saturday several of us guys went to a little road side coffee shop type place that made really good smoothies! If you look closely at the picture you can see that there is more than just smoothies on the menu, but they use yogurt to make the smoothies. These are some of the best smoothies I have every tasted. The best part about it is you get like 24 oz for just over a dollar!!! $1 = about 32 bhat.
Monday was a challenging day. In that afternoon Wendall, Zach and I went with Lanus Dueck to several buddhist temples.

Classes are going well. I am learning that exercise is extremely important in a place like this. Two evenings a week is what we get here. Its usually about 2 hours long so we do get a good amount of exercise in. Its just that I am used to playing volleyball for 3-4 hours at a time!! Tues nights we play footsall and Thurs nights we play volleyball. Footsall is very similar to soccer only its played on a MUCH smaller field with less people. This past Thurs. night it was raining but we played outside anyway. Are you seeing a pattern here? :) I enjoy it but some of the students don't. Ephesians is my favorite class. Biblical Theology is probably next but is definitely the hardest. The book that we are reading is called "Radical" is one of my favorite to read. For homework we need to read anywhere from 0.5 - 1 chapter each day. The next one is Discovering our God 1. This one is good too. The fourth one then is TESOL. For Discovering Our God 1, we are ready through "The Knowledge of the Holy", by A.W. Tozer. The one thought that stood out to me was that God cannot learn anything because He knows everything already. If He could learn something then He would not be God. In our finite minds we cannot comprehend an infinite God!!!
I do have lots more to say but it will just have to wait! I don't have a lot of extra time these days so any time I get to connect with other students here I want to take advantage of that!!
.....till next time, cookie!
