Hi friends!! I haven’t written a blog post in a few months and I apologize for that! But this will be a gooder and I held off for a reason, its been in the works for the last coupleish months!
Currently I’m at the Vancouver Airport because I am g o i n g back to Victoria. Am I coming home to stay? No I am not. I am coming home to raise more support, working at the daycare I was at before leaving for Thailand and visit with family & friends for the summer. I am only home for 2-3 months till I head back to THAILAAAAANNDD. Bangkok Thailand!! Bangkok has become home super quick, I was in Bangkok for 9 months today! 🎉 I’m so joyful its not over. Not over.. I’ll dig into that. 🎉
Over the months that I’ve been in Thailand, I’ve learned alooooooot of things, you learn more about yourself than you think, its kinda cooool. I’ve prayerfully decided about my future in Thailand. What that looks like? I’ll give you a general picture; Going back to Bangkok and starting something completely different, opposite, new & MY DREAM JOB!!!!!!!! Honestly guys, I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t belieeeeeeeve it when the door opened and I went through it and got accepted right away. This is within the lines of my passions & calling. The EXACT thing I knew I wanted to do with my time in Thailand, or at least hope to do. Right now, I don’t think I can publically give you specifics on my job because of the nature of my job.. But I can tell you my role, organization and who we work with. Buuut if you want to know what my job description is, you can always ask me!
I will be a Case Manager. If you know social work or if you’re a police officer oooor know how cases get solved haha, then you know what I’ll be doing. The organization is called Nightlight international. Nightlight helps women who are negatively impacted by sexual exploitation. Women who have been trafficked or are in prostitution. We work with Thai women and international women. I am required to stay for a year and this is a full time job, because of the nature of my job, full time can look like 50 hours a week rather than 40. Although I am required to stay a year, I do plan to stay longer than that. I see Thailand being home long term, and if all goes well with Nightlight, its where I’ll stay! Future is b r i g h t ✨ I am so so excited!!
This opportunity scared me, shocked me and got me excited. Feelings all in order^ haha, because this is a dream and something I thought I wouldn’t be especially in another country on the other side of the planet. Right now, Im happy and excited and still in disbelief but Im fine heh🙈
As Im home for the summer, if you’re the type of person to pray.. these are some things you could pray for, you can pick one or all or none. Power to ya ✌🏼
- Fundraising/ working for all the money that needs to come in.. comes in because I still am a missionary with the PAOC.
- Cheers to reverse culture shock.. not.
- Time with family and friends this summer will be restful rather than anything else.
- Me as I prepare for something completely different, I feel unequipped but thats the beauty of God and how He calls people. Yay Him.
If you do want or feel like supporting me financially, here is PAOC account link! This is how you can support me that way.
My bio hasn’t been updated (sorry PAOC🙈) but from reading this blog post, you know what I’ll be doing in Thailand. Thanks so much friends!!!
Cheers to summer 2018🎉
Much love ✌🏼abbs
