Wanna visit? We are flying to the states in June and would love to chat with you or your group about what God is doing here in Mae Sot! We are not only looking for supporters, we're looking for advocates - people passionate about seeing God's Kingdom reign in some of the most untouched places on earth.
Invite us to share at your church.
Let us set up a table in the lobby.
Give us a mic at your youth group.
Introduce us to your bible study, sports team, or club.
Share food or coffee with us.
We'd love to connect!
Shoot us an email and we'll set something up.
Hey guys! Lauren here! It's been a busy 5 and a half months since arriving in Thailand. Paris and I jumped straight into teaching English with the team here at Outpour Movement, and last month we launched our own English program called SucSeed. I feel the need to list off all the things we've been doing since we got to Mae Sot in order to explain why we haven't been blogging, regularly sending out updates, or staying in contact with all the people we care about, but in the end they would all be excuses. We have been busy, but who hasn't?
Over the past few months, Lauren and I have been working hard and playing hard here in Mae Sot.
Let's run the numbers:
Now let's take a look at it from a different view. Here is a photo recap of the past few months. Enjoy!

After getting married in September, my wife and I were headed to Thailand to work with refugees on the border of Myanmar. That left us with a lot of loose ends to tie up before we took off - including what to do with her car.
Upon looking at plane tickets, we made a bold move and pulled the trigger on cheap tickets from LAX to BKK (check out Scott's Cheap Flights for amazing deals on airfare). Not knowing how we were going to make it from Charlotte, NC to Los Angeles, CA we came up with a plan.
Over the next couple of weeks, we took our unassuming Ford Explorer and converted it into our own adventure mobile - equipped with a foldable sleeping platform, kitchen, comfortable mattress, tons of storage, and more!
With a modest budget and a lot of elbow grease, we turned "Dora the Explorer" into what we believe is the coolest car camping solution ever.
Planning a wedding is stressful, but planning a wedding around a hurricane is another story. We knew our wedding day wasn't going to look the way we originally planned; the rain and wind forced us inside, and many of our guests were not able to attend. But at the end of the day, surrounded by family and friends, we said "I do". Afterward we made our way toward beautiful Dilworth to spend the next couple days holed up in our new favorite AirBnB, The Cozy Cottage.
