Shopping time :)
Our third day at the Church turned into a worship and shopping day. We were woken up by beautiful traditional Thai music in the distance; according to the Pastors, this music is typically played during celebrations like weddings or a boy’s choice to become a monk. After drinking Uncle Wit’s famous espresso, we headed for breakfast. The exotic fruit of the day had sharp spines on the outside, and its Thai name translated to “suffering.” The team had dissenting opinion on the fruit: Eva thought it tasted like rotten cantaloupe while Taylor and Cam insisted it tasted either like a strawberry melon or a citrus melon. After breakfast, we had two hours of free time to relax, which was then followed by worship at the Church. We were so excited to see more of the people in the community at the worship and interact with them! They seemed very happy to see us too, which made our day. Then we went to HomePro, Thai Watsadu, and Tesco to get materials for our community outreach and our project. We had dinner at the mall and finally headed back, ready and excited to work the next day bright and early!
