The lights leaving Bangkok are much brighter than the lights upon arrival in Yangon, but the Yangon airport is looking much, much spiffier than when I first started flying there just two years ago.
Most of today was spent greeting Lutheran Theological Seminary (LTS) Hong Kong alumni now teaching at Karen Baptist Theological Seminary:
|Theology under the young mango tree|
|Theology in the clothing shop|
|Karen culture textiles|
|Karen culture handwoven clothes|
|Heading out for lunch|
|The daughter of Dr. Christopher... who waited three long years for her Daddy |
to return from his Hong Kong studies.
Wayne will be teaching a seminar on healthy families and I'll be his healthy assistant :) Actually, I'm going to be doing a unit on church-based sex education, based on the Master's degree thesis from another Myanmar LTS alumnus. Please please say a prayer for us! May we listen, and learn, and perhaps be of some use in our teaching.
