Update from Thailand :: June 16

This morning Cathy, Tracy, and Sabra came up with some tag lines for life here at UHDP. Attire is Campie Casual. Hairstyle is Wash and Wear. Make up trend is Bare Look or All Natural. Daily fragrance is Ode to DEET.

Following breakfast we broke into three teams and each worked with UHDP and ECHO workers to plant banana trees, fish-tailed palm trees, and bean plants, that live up to 50 years. We dug holes for planting with large hoes and used compost produced on site. We enjoyed working alongside those who are so dedicated to developing sustainable agricultural practices here in northern Thailand. 

After a successful morning of planting, we gathered with the entire planting crew (staffs of UHDP and ECHO) for an exchange of greetings, prayers for each other, gifts, and a delicious lunch. We received cool t-shirts with UHDP logos.After lunch our host Tui took us on an excursion to a Buddhist temple, located at the top of a hill. The temple is trimmed in bright yellow and has a tall spire. Inside there are many ornate displays, including many Buddhas. We enjoyed coffee from a beautiful vista near the temple. 

During our evening reflection time, we expressed our great joy in working with everyone at UHDP. Our experiences here have impacted us in large and small ways. We will return to our homes in a few days with new insights and perspectives that will hopefully allow God to work through us in new and impactful ways.
