"But What Do You Dooooo?"
Have you asked yourself, "Okay, so they moved to Thailand to 'fight human trafficking', but what do they do on a day to day basis?"
Well, no worries! Our families even asked the same question! So ask no longer... Here's the scoop :
If you haven't picked up on this from our previous posts, we don't actually live at the children's home! Cole and I are required to work a busy 40+ hour work week. But we go home at the end of each day, and we get weekends. It's a blessing, as this work is pretty taxing spiritually, mentally and physically.
Ephesians 6:12 isn't joking when is says "Our struggle isn't against flesh and blood, but...against the spiritual forces..." We are in a fight, but we have the King of Kings on our side.
Each morning, first things first - we make ourselves a cup of joe while reading our Bibles and drinking our daily smoothie. Or we hold the coffee and grab some on our way to work from the gal who owns the coffee shop right across the street from us. Her name is Ming!
Both mine and Cole's jobs have a wide variety of what "work" looks like, so here's a bit of a taste.
Some days are office days - sitting on our computers, Cole doing media, me doing NextGen (children and youth) ministry prep. Other days are busy with work meetings, prayer meetings, worship meetings, and other MEETINGS! But on other days you'll find me working in the coffee shop downstairs, running a trade-school program and cafe. And you'll find Cole taking photos and videos of the latest and greatest happening at ZOE. And on days that I'm really lucky, I get to hang out with the kids and youth - doing games, activities, outings and sessions.
Two days a week we have Thai lessons. But most days we'll just stop at our local market for our dollar dinner, go to the gym, sweep our dusty (oh so dusty) floors and be off to bed!
What a blessing of a life we live, huh?
If you have more questions, PLEASE ask! We love sharing about our lives, ZOE, and all God is doing. Thanks for tuning in to this crazy life we live!
