New from Thailand

Where ever Recapture goes, whether here in the states or internationally, we want to go into an area that already an organization there with relationships in place. We feel that is vital to understanding the situation that we are going into as well as the people and culture that we are to touch. As you guys might remember, we were working along side of Campus Crusade for Christ in the northern city of Chiang Mai. Mike and Judy are on staff there and were responsible for helping build the huts on the islands that we visited as well. Before we had left we had printed a few extra pictures of some of the people in the trade areas we had introduced to you, the readers, to in this blog. Click here to read the post we did and to see the pictures mentioned. Our intention was to go back to those hard workers and give them those print. Unfortunately, we ran out of time and was not able to make it happen. Judy said, instead, she would do it for us! They have been busy with trips to Vietnam and projects that they have been involved with, Judy did not have a chance to do this. We just received an email from Judy, here is what she said:

“Just want you to know that I finally got your pictures delivered to everyone. Every single delivery was so fun and the people seemed so thrilled that I was giving it to them as a gift. They all tried to pay me for the frames- which is quite funny…..I took the one to the little old lady stringing her flowers. She had gone back to her home village- but her daugher was there (and) said that she would deliver it to her and thanked me

Yesterday, I took them out to the handicraft road. The lady making the Sa papaer had also gone home to her village- but they called out to her husband who also worked there and I gave it to him. I had my new camera that day- with the battery charged and got this photo of him. Sorry- no smiles- but you know the culture well enought to know he was still happy. We also went to the umbrella factory and I showed the next photo to a few people and they all called for this lady and she came out to see me. It was their lunch break. She was so proud of it and kept looking at it. I took photos of her too….Just wanted you to know that I have completed my assignment!”

Judy took pictures of the husband of the Sa paper maker below. If you notice in his right hand, is that picture, framed. 


The picture below is a picture of the umbrella maker with Judy. 

Thank you Judy for sharing these stories with us!

You are in big trouble- Miss Katie!!! I thought that message and picture was just to you and Chris– not to the masses of thousands who check out your blog. If I would have known that- I may have tried to be a bit more professional in my note and photos!!! I gotta think of a way to get you back. Maybe I’ll post on my blog a picture of you from my archives!!! I still love you!!!
