|March 19, 2006 at the Thai - Myanmar Border|
Seems like just yesterday, but it has been 11 years … That’s right! ELEVEN Years since we first arrived in Thailand, and March 19 was our first day in Mae Sai, where this adventure that we call LIFE all began.
Every year since, we have taken a picture at this same spot in front of the border between Thailand and Myanmar. In 2006, Hattie was 8, Louise was 6, Lil’ Harry was 2, and Nellie was 8 months. We look at the picture today and we can’t help but realize that God has given us a heart and home here in Thailand.

Since our beginning with ARLDF doing community development, starting Narrow Gate Farm and Dairy, partnering with Baan Athitaan Church in Chiang Rai and Pha Mii Church in Mae Sai, and with MDE / SEND, we have seen God do amazing things as we share the love of Jesus in North Thailand.
|Road Trip to the Border today.|
Today, we went to Mae Sai to celebrate this anniversary. We shopped along the border, where Louise says, “You can buy CHEAP stuff, that does not look CHEAP…. For a REALLY CHEAP price!” We took pictures at the border, and we ate lunch at the first restaurant in Mae Sai that we had Khao Soi Noodles at. It was a fun day to just play, and reflect on God’s goodness. We even took a “Card-board Hattie” with us to celebrate, since she is in the States!

It has been a busy few weeks at the farm… We have hosted livestock training groups from ARLDF, Business as Mission groups with OMF, next week we will do site assessments for a partner in Myanmar, and we will be working through some planning projects with our Thai staff. As we look back on the past 11 years, be in prayer with us for the future, and remember that God is Good, all the time!
