Hello! My name is Anna, and I’m thrilled to be serving the people of Khon Kaen, Thailand this year by teaching at Peace Music Academy. I’m taking a year off from being a student at Andrews University where I study Music Education. It’s an honor to let God use me and my talents to be a missionary for Him.
Student Missionary for 2016-2017, serving the Central Thai people of Thailand.
It’s a struggle at times, but I’m learning how to celebrate Christmas in my new environment. Though there seems to be a sever lack of holiday cheer in Thailand, there’s something about being in this country that makes the Christmas story come alive.
I’ve purposely left out from this post all the feelings of despair and discouragement I’ve experienced in the past few weeks. I’ve come to realize that complaining about a situation doesn’t make it any better. I’ve done my fair share of weeping over Khon Kaen, just like Jesus wept over Jerusalem, but crying about how lost these people are isn’t going to help them find their way home.
The end of the week has come again, and I feel like time is racing away from me. However, the clock is ticking not just for my time in Thailand, but also for the rest of this world’s existence. We only have a short amount of time left on this earth – what are we doing to take advantage of that?
