WE MADE IT TO THAILAND!
The first group for PUC Thailand 138 arrived in Thailand TODAY! They were welcomed with beautiful floral necklaces by Pastor Mike and Dara Rasavanh, as well as Khem Saythongkham in Bangkok. Our team is already amazed with how beautiful the country is, and how kind all of the people are. After the entire team arrived, we all loaded up in a large van and headed off to Central Mall, where we got our first taste of the delicious Thai cuisine. When we arrived at the New Life Church, we were welcomed by the entire team of cooks, translators, and many other wonderful people who will be helping us throughout the project. We had a lovely curry dish and noodle soup, and for dessert - a variety of exotic fruits! The entire team is so excited to continue exploring the Thai culture and getting to know the community here and at Ban Huai Yang Elementary School. We will be settling in tonight to adjust to the 12-hour time difference and start work tomorrow! We will be posting here every day, so feel free to keep up with the adventure that we are about to embark on as we begin working toward bringing clean water to 138 kids!
