Welcome to PlaaPlaaPlaa!

So you may be wondering why PlaaPlaaPlaa? What are those strange fish symbols above? What is ปลา and what does it mean? In short, this is a blog site, so surely there's going to be plenty of rambling. Unfortunately BlahBlahBlah was already taken, so I had to settle for the 'Plaa'. But there's actually more to it then just ramblings. The first fish symbol is actually a Christian symbol meaning ICTHUS - a greek acronymn which means "Jesus Christ is God's Son, the Saviour". The other strange letters you see in the last fish is actually the thai word for fish which funnily enough is pronounced "Plaa". So when you put it all together, this site is going to be my ramblings in telling people about how Jesus Christ is God's Son, the Saviour in Thailand (with plenty of good stories about food in between). Happy reading.

ANOTHER case of dengue fever

Don't worry, it's not me that's come down with dengue fever, but poor Kim. It's actually the 3rd case of dengue fever in the past month with friends from church. Despite some really bad body aches and headaches in the first couple days, she's now feeling lots better apart from the constant ache in her left arm due to the drip and constant injections of medicine. Please pray for Kim as she recovers, that she will do so quickly and won't have to stay in hospital for too long.

However, the dengue fever has given her an 'extension' on doing her cell group sharing this friday. Personally, i reckon she should still do it, as we can all meet in her hospital room (she's in a massive room on her own) and in the next few days, she really has nothing better to do with her time :) haha the other option i'm encouraging is for the cell group to go visit her in hospital on friday night, then head over to the Holiday Inn hotel across the road for their friday night seafood buffet!! It's definitely THE BEST value seafood buffet that i've EVER been to! here's just a sample plate of what you can get :)

if you manage to come visit me over here and love seafood, i'll even let you take me out to dinner there :)

Sorry, got a little sidetracked there :) Back to Kim, please pray for her in her recovery from dengue fever, as well as for wisdom in her prep as she prepares to lead the cell group in the near future (yet to be determined).

In other news in the past week, have been doing a bit of stuff for Wycliffe Thailand of late, in helping with a bit of graphic design (yes, even that amuses me too cos i really have no idea what i'm doing), and being part of a team that's looking at doing some radio evangelism, through using people's testimonies as to how they came to Christ and how the Bible has impacted their lives. it's still early days yet, but it's also exciting to see Thai Christians taking the initiative to reach others with the gospel in ways that they've never tried. It's kinda interesting sitting in on meetings that i don't fully understand, but hopefully as time goes on, i'll start to understand more. It's been exciting for me though, to be able to show them some of the things that i've done in the past when i worked at TVS to get them even more excited about the possibilities of what can be done. Please pray for wisdom for Ajarn Chumsaeng, Pii Miu, Pii Tor as they think about the future of this project. Pray that i'll have wisdom in knowing how much to be involved and how i can be involved as well (they're keen for me to do as much as i can if i can).

anyway, thought i'd share some of the graphics that i've been doing for them tonight - they're needing a new foundation logo. What began as a logo looking like this

i've now done up a few options to look like this. Hope it's better :)
