Thailand Update 6/20

We started teaching English to the Burmese kids three days a week. Even though that wasn’t what we intended to do at the home, we saw it was a good way to spend time with them and they will also be learning something that will be useful to them. They are catching on, but even more than that it has given us a small glimpse into their lives. After our teaching sessions, we’ll have times where they are singing and dancing. And when I hear 30-70 kids singing music in their own language, it brings tears to my eyes. I put myself in their shoes, and imagine having little to no family around, not knowing the language, and then the rest of the Thai students not appreciating the Burmese kids being there. I want our classroom to be a place where they feel loved and feel safe enough that they can show their true selves and bring their culture and its beauty to life.
