Day One in Thailand for Britt
Brookie just posted: Another Brandon in Thailand!

Here's a few excerpts of what Brooke wrote:
Yesterday morning my little brother Britt (who isn't so little anymore!), came to visit Thailand. We've already done so much in the last 36 hours.... I can't believe he just got here yesterday!


On Day 1 we visited a village about 45 minutes away from the city. My team has spent a lot of time with these Thai friends already... but we are starting a new activity on Saturdays. This was our first one.... going out, playing with kids, telling a story, doing a craft project, and talking with their families. Britt raised money to bring footballs and frisbees to these kids... he and Greg (one of Britt's best friends who now lives in Chiang-Mai) did a great job playing with the kids. We'll go back again next Saturday and leave the toys with the kids... so they can introduce American football to all their friends! :)







DAY 2 in Thailand: Went to church at a children's home called House of Blessing. We had several hours to play with the kids. This is the home where Britt raised $1,200 last year and I was able to give toys, craft supplies, underwear and shoes to all 123 orphans for Christmas. It was a great opportunity for Britt to meet the kids there. We were joined by a high school volunteer team from Texas.... this is the school that I attended all the way from Kindergarten through high school. Britt used to go to the same school as well, up until last year when my family moved to Austin. So, Britt has enjoyed reuniting with some good high school buddies in Thailand. Crazy! They attacked each other in hugs last night when they first saw each other in a local park. :) Enjoy the pics below at the House of Blessing. You'll see the high school team telling some stories for SS and teaching the kids how to make a necklace for a craft.STAY TUNED for more pics this week! :)Posted by Brooke at 9:41 am on her blog:



UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Britt met up with his high school buddies at this orphanage---and they are halfway around the world!
Stay tuned for Brooke to post more pictures every day this week. Thank you so much Brookie!!!!

Isn't it amazing how you can really see what's going on and how your boy is doing. I know you're proud of them! Love, Annette
