last week update

tomorrow marks the 7 day count down till we head home. i cannot believe it. where has this summer gone? i am not ready to leave here at all! but, its not over yet! here is a little update on life the past week or so...

milk and i heading out to go to the freshy games on the first night... the theme was pj party!

since we couldnt be home for the 4th of july, all of CO-T headed to the pool and enjoyed some relaxing time and American desserts!

later that night our whole team got to stay a night at the Pullman Hotel! it is the only 5 star hotel here. let me tell you... it. was. incredible! i have never been so happy to jump in a bed in my LIFE.

this was katy and i's view from our window! i've fallen in love with this city.

later that week milk and i got to go over to P'Rung's house to cook for some girls we have gotten close with! its always a smorgishboard when we do... spaghetti, thai casserole, brownies... who know!

this is a pretty crazy story. i've known i dont have the best of teeth, but i didn't think they were this bad.... last week we were sitting in d-group and one of the girls brought some cracker jacks her mom had sent her from the states. so, of course, i was eating them. i thought that my tongue kept getting stuck on a kernel in my teeth so i reached my finger to the back of my mouth to scrape it out and to my surprise, in stead of pulling out a kernel, i look at my hand and see half my tooth just sitting there!

we headed to the hospital later that day to get the hole in my mouth fixed. it was quite the adventure. instead of making you work the whole time like they do in America, the Thai's have this nifty invention... i like to call it The Tongue Clamp. its like a pair of tongs and they clip it on your tongue and then use a pulley system and it holds your tongue out and up so it doesn't get in the dentists way! it was the strangest thing ever but slightly hilarious. no worries, all my teeth are now solidly in place!

this is at more freshie games! the theme was 'evils' (obviously)... it was great fun! videos will be up soon of the cheers! they are unlike anything you have ever seen.

earlier this week i got to do a photo-shoot with a bunch of girls! it was SO. MUCH. FUN! i got to do their hair and make up and dress them all crazy! i loved every second of it. and afterwards we all went and got coffee and talked about things that girls struggle with cross-culturally. we talked about where we find our confidence, what qualifies us as beautiful, weight struggles, boys... all of it. and by the end of the conversation all the girls had heard the Gospel for the first time. i love seeing how the Lord works! (from LtoR: Oui, me, May, Dong, Nammon, and Yohjo)

this is one little clip from our day out...

THEN some of the girls on my team were sweet enough to let me do a photo-shoot with them during an afternoon that we had off! i really could do this all day long! i love getting to admire how creative God is!

thats about it for now! my roomie and i just finished yet another criminal minds (episode "100"... easily my favorite so far) before we go to sleep! pray for our team and the CO-T team as we try to finish strong our last few days here! God isn't done yet.
