1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.

We got up this morning and headed off to teach the little ones, which was a lot of fun. It is great to see our kids engaged with these kids. David even helped by leading an improvised game of Simon Says and did great. We are now able to get most of the kids repeating after us and actually speaking, which is great.

After getting home from school we were able to do a bit of schoolwork with our children and then Wat took us into Nan to see the night market and to get some dinner. It was so funny because Wat dropped us off in the front of the market and then went to park the car, we didn’t even get out of the car and two soldiers where trying to snap a pictures of our kids. So we were able to get a posed picture with them!


There were so many people and different vendors that the options for dinner were limitless. The first thing we got was a watermelon smoothie (served inside a watermelon). This sounds as wonderful as it was, but because it was so large and we needed the kids to still eat dinner, we only ordered one for the kids to share. We should have known better…this became a constant fight over who got to hold it, who was drinking more, who spilled it on someone else, etc. But we were able to distract them with a (kind of) waffle. This was not a traditional waffle but rather little pods (honestly they looked like a honeycomb) filled with whatever you chose (we got one banana and one strawberry). These were incredible! The kids (and us adults) devoured them. As we moved on through the market we stocked up on various different Thai foods and then sat down at a table to eat. There was music and dancing happening up on the stage, as well as various vendors selling clothing and toys, shoes, and anything else you can imagine. This was such a happening place to be and I can’t wait to come back again soon.
