Yellow Shirt Day!

[As this last picture suggests, I've been riding the bus recently. Yesterday morning I had my first "successful" bus trip - which was the way I got to church this week. : ) I discovered that it costs 8 baht to take the bus (which is generally just as fast as a taxi) to get to the MTW office/church in comparison to the 35-60 baht I was paying to take a taxi. The cheapo in me couldn't resist!]

You make me proud. Yay for you to take the bus and made it to church successfully! Isn't it much better though? That way you can also minister and get to know the people who ride with you. When I took the bus, I did that and built some pretty cool relationships. =)

You can think of it as another ministry opportunity. =)

I'm just so proud. Now we'll really have to take the bus when you get home! (Would that be fun?) LOL

Hugs. Miss ya.
Love always,

I have a question,

You mentioned that the King likes yellow so everyone wears yellow on Monday. Is this an optional thing? Or is it a law there?
(Some countries have funny laws, so I was curious about some laws that are different than ours.)

Hey Catherine,
Love the pic from the bus with all the yellow shirts!
About the yellow shirts...the King was born on a Monday and Mondays color is yellow..thus all the yellow. However, this year because of the King's 60th anniversary as King he has ordered that all government workers wear yellow every (Friday, I thought but I am thinking it might be Monday now.) At any rate, the Thais are caught wearing yellow any day of the week; there are always a lot of yellow shirts around.
