ABQ in Thailand for a Teaching Mission!
Dear ABQ Readers:
Just want to tell you why this blog has been EXTREMELY quiet when the biggest event in the UNIVERSE is taking place in Russia. It’s because I’m on a teaching mission to Thailand at a Christian media school called Media Light. Been here since the end of October and will stay til the 3rd week of November 2013.
Very much like an international beauty pageant, people from all over the world come to participate in Media Light. The students spend 2 months in Chiangrai City, Thailand learning how to make viral videos and short documentaries. My husband Ron and I teach voicing, audio for video and blogging. This year we have students from Britain, Cambodia, Italy, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, Uzbekistan, and USA. All we need now is a stage, a make-up artist and bikinis to have our own pageant here! (Panalo ang ‘Pinas for sure! LOL!)
This is an annual commitment that Ron and I have made and it’s part of our Christian walk to teach and serve others. To be honest, it feels like a big sacrifice not writing about Miss Universe. Duty before beauty, right? But this sacrifice is extremely small compared to what other have done for the faith, so at the end of the day, I close my eyes with thankfulness in my heart because I am blessed beyond what I deserve!
But I haven’t been completely absent from writing! I was able to send off 3 articles to Rappler which you can read if you click on the links below:

Meantime, scroll down to see photos of our teaching sessions and the sights we’ve seen so far.
Krap kung kaaaa and love you all…
