Village Life

These are photos taken while visiting some rural believers in Northern Thailand this past week.
I took lots of pictures and it is always hard to choose which to share but these, I thought, captured the people and their lives .

This young lady was doing some weeding near her home
and had such a beautiful smile.

~ Karen lady & her baby I was delighted to hold  ~  
~ lady with a tub of clothes to hang up  ~
These believers have very little in material possesions
but they have the joy of the Lord.

~ Typical village home ~    ~mother & child~
~ Larry helped dig a hole where they are putting up a new home ~ 
 ~ the pastor and his family ~

Meeting new brothers and sisters in Christ.

The Lord used these visits to challenge my heart in many ways again.
I needed to be reminded of how much I have and thank the Lord for blessing me with comforts so many do not have.

"for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Matthew 6:21

Thanks for sharing the pictures....sure is a very different lifestyle than here in the U.S.
I am sure the people were encouraged by your visit and you by them as well.
