Love in Thailand

It's Sunday. It's a beautiful Sunday. I have the opportunity today to spend time with family. It's going to be a good day.

For so many men, women and children around the world, though, their options aren't anywhere near as vast as mine and that gnaws at me. Every time I am able to enjoy a gift from God, I think of those who do not have that choice and it bothers me to no end.

That's why I do this blog. That's why I donate my time and money. That's why I will continue working for as long as God will allow me, however He wants me to.

A friend of mine told me about this site today. NightLight is an organization that works directly with the women in the bars in Thailand's red light district. In addition to offering the love and hope of Jesus Christ, they offer these women an alternative to working the bars.

They make and sell jewelry.

I have yet to buy a piece to see its quality but the pictures are beautiful. There is one piece in particular that I want so I am going to order it. I'll let you know what I think once I receive it.

In the meantime, head on over and read through the site yourself.


Proverbs 31:8-9
