|First Family Vacation|
|Wednesday, 28 March 2007 10:25|
Sun & I are finally enjoying our first real vacation since our
honeymoon almost two years ago. With the pregnancy and Joshua's birth,
there was never really a good time to get away, not to mention all of
the busyness involved with preparing to leave for Thailand. Joshua is
at a good age now where we can start to do a few things with him and we
all, especially me, need a break. OMF has nice holiday home on the
beach in Southern Thailand that is available for missionaries.
We've enjoyed sometime to sit back and relax, read, go for a swim, walk on the beach, and play with Joshua. Sun's had some time to do cross stitch and I am working on some books that I've been meaning to get to for a while. I am slowly working my way through Revival and Revivalism by Iain Murray but I got sidetracked by a book of sermons by J. Gresham Machen that I found in the library here at the OMF holiday home. There is also a book on Calvin's life here but I don't know if I'll get to it before we leave in a few days.
Our next holiday probably won't be for a while because when we get back to Lopburi, we only have two or three months of language study before we move on to our ministry location (yet to be decided). After we move, we'll want some time to settle into our new city and get to know people before we would want to take any vacation. So, we are trying to take advantage of this break now before we are back at it next week.
Here are some pictures of what we've been doing with ourselves on vacation.
