One week already!January 28, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C
We're off to play with the elephants! What a beautiful drive. It was my final wish of the week to get out of the city into the beautiful dense green areas! Our group was around 25. For the morning we fed and got a little acquainted with the elephants. Learned their names and how to dodge them when they moved around. They provided a wonderful lunch and then we went to the mud ponds to bathe them. Tyler was kind enough to throw their droppings off to the side, although I'm sure the water had a lot of ingredients we weren't aware of! They would roll in the mud and spray us, even sneezing right in my face! It was an educational experience! They are amazing creatures!
For our final dinner we went to Tyler and Mical's favorite place. The grounds look like botanical gardens. Orchids everywhere! Even the bathrooms were beautiful!!
Well we start our journey home today. It will be sad to say goodbye to the best tour guides ever! We've been so blessed to be with them and get a feel for their life this year. It's easier to know how to pray more specifically for them. God is going to do amazing things with them as they demonstrate Gods hands and feet to these people! 🙏Read more
