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.

So, last year it was All the Single Ladies, this year, we decided to do another video for the SMBC End of Year Dinner, which we did to a tune from Mulan, renamed 'SMBC'll Make a Missionary Out of you'. Was heaps of fun filming, recording and editing this years video with lots of great memories from the past couple years. If you want to check it out, you can check it out on youtube here. Hope you enjoy :)

End of College

It's hard to believe that 2 years have come and gone and i'm now finishing up college. It's been an amazing time! i've learnt so much, made some amazing friends, been challenged in ways that i never imagined, and to finish up my time at college i even got to present my project from the same platform as Don Carson at the college Projects Fair. Here's my proof (and no, i haven't just photoshopped my name onto it)


It's been an amazing privilege to be able to take a couple years out to go to college, learn from God's word and be surrounded by an amazing community of people, but now i am ready to get back into the 'real world' and am really looking forward to heading back to Thailand. There's lots of prep that still needs to be done before heading back. Top of the list is to start partnership development and start sorting out all the logistical aspects of getting visas, sorting out budgets and finance, cleaning out my room, getting all my shots, spending time with family and friends etc etc etc. I'd really appreciate your prayers for all of that.

Accepted

The past few months have been busy reading articles, writing my final essays and my project as i finish up at college. I've also had all my interviews with Pioneers and Mission Partners and have now been approved and accepted by them, so it's all systems go in heading back to Thailand. Well, need to finish my project first, but once that's done, i'm sure you'll be hearing from me.

I've also I also got interviewed by Mission Partners recently. The interview can be found here. If you want a laugh, there's also a pretty bad photo of me too.
