Sorry for the long break from posting!
Many, many, many things has happened since I’ve last posted. I’m not even sure where to begin. I write in my journal daily. If I was to update everyone what’s been going on these past few days, this blog would be a book! So I will try to keep this blog current.
My mentality coming into this trip was thinking that I came to be of service for the locals and help them, but its really me who they’ve helped! It’s difficult to explain with words, it’s only something that can be understood by feeling.
The students and strangers I’ve encountered have been truly insightful. Tomorrow is day 6 of teaching. Teaching basic conversational English has been a struggle. The language barrier is the greatest obstacle, but thankfully the students are smart and eager learners. They crave knowledge. They arrive to class earlier than expected and stay longer than needed. These students are simply amazing.
I’m beginning to get comfortable in our little hut in Singha Village but the time here with them is already coming to an end..
P.S. – I love how we are constantly surrounded by so many animals.
