Throw back to this sweet memory.

IT IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE.

November 2013, I have a chance to visit Chiang Kong, Thailand, together with my wife, my parents and a sweet old couple.

Having great time with these energetic teenagers

This trip was special because we were going to bless someone in this trip. Before we come, we have made preparations to bless these little churches. Blessing not only in the form of goods, we also brought in some materials to strengthen their faith in God.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Let the picture speaks and become my sweet memory.

Visit the Ming Mo Church at a place called The Starry Skies (满星叠). At night, the stars will cover the skies, which was just stunning.

Sumptuous Korean delicacy prepared by a Korean Pastor who lives here. He was formerly NIKE senior manager who resides in China. God has changed his life when he was at his lowest point of his life. He has dedicated his life to God. The kids (orphans) like him so much that they call him PaPa.

We also took the chance to visit some trade mark places over here.

Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge

Queen Sirikit Botanical Garden
This garden is stunning. Due to it was near to winter, the weather was cool, and the garden was covered in mist.

The Castle behind was the Queen's castle, where all her things are kept there un-touch. Some Thai people will come and kneel and pay respect to her even up to today.

The Legendary Khun Sa Museum
The room that Khun Sa stayed still remain, and we can go in to that room. Picture below showing me standing by his make up table.

The hall where the soldiers gathered. It was told that behind the red cloth, there was a secret passage for them to run, but the passage was bombed and no longer exist.

After 5 days 4 nights, we came home satisfied. We come here to bless people, but instead, I feel that I am the one that was blessed by them. Their passion, determination, energy has influence me lot.

Thank God and love life!
