Hi friends – one of our lovely team members has been writing updates describing our time in Bangkok and Vietnam. We wanted to share these emails with you in case you were curious about what we have been doing these past two months, enjoy!

Thursday, Dec 7, 2006 4:24 pm _ Hello from Bangkok! _ We arrived yesterday Dec 6th at 10:10 am local time, and were greeted at the airport by 2 staff from Baan Jai Daiow (YWAM Thailand) and a blast of hot tropical air._ We loaded our stuff into the vehicles and were taken on a short ride to our hotel._ We’ll be staying at YWAM Thailand for the majority of our time here, but rooms were not available until December 10th, so God has blessed us with hospitality at the beautiful Hotel Avana, owned by local Thai Christians. _ The flights went very smoothly; our nine hour layover in Singapore was such a blessing for catching up on sleep._ Everyone was still a bit tired when we arrived in Bangkok but we had a few hours to settle in our rooms and freshen up before dinner._ Dinner was at Central Market, a_ colorful and very big indoor market._ The Thai people are super sweet and very smiley and friendly. _ We started orientation at Baan Jai Daiow today and are all excited to get to know our new Thai friends._ Thank you all for prayers & please continue to lift up our group that we would accomplish all that God has planned for us here._ _ Love, YWAM San Francisco DTS
