2 1/2 Days Down, 165 To Go: A REACH Update

By Lacy, REACH Team Thailand
“Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.”

—Walker Evans


Team Thailand arrived safely with zero problems throughout our nearly 40 hours of traveling. YAY!

We have a handful of days left before language school begins and so far we have spent a lot of time taking in all that Thailand has to offer. Along with being the team leader, I have also had the privilege of being a tour guide for the last few days, showing the girls places that I’ve missed for the last six months, and it has been so fun!

I am so proud of the ways that everyone is diving right in and trying all of the food, no matter how oystery or spicy it may be. Today at lunch Morgan sat down with Tom Yum Gai (hot and sour chicken soup) and as she took the first couple of bites, proudly exclaimed ‘this isn’t NEARLY as spicy as I thought it’d be!’ Before too long she piped up with a ‘I spoke too soon! The more I eat, the spicier it gets!’ but that didn’t stop her from finishing every last bite!

“It’s wonderful to think about how our team, despite being made up physically of five ladies, each carry communities of people who have poured into us, walked beside us and have sent us off.” We are still fighting jetlag and I’m personally hating the ‘no naps in the first week’ rule that I gave the team upon arrival.

Our apartments are quickly feeling cozy thanks to some new plants, and all of the pictures lining the walls. There’s a whole lot of love and support looking at us in those images. It’s wonderful to think about how our team, despite being made up physically of five ladies, each carry communities of people who have poured into us, walked beside us and have sent us off. Thanks to all of that love we have received, we are able to be here and give it away freely!


Please pray for Team Thailand and all the REACH teams as they adjust to their new living spaces. Pray for rest, unity, health, and that God would use them as his light in these locations. Pray for peace God’s provision for Team Eurasia especially as they wait to receive visas for their outreach location and hope to arrive there next week.
