At first glance, Thailand is the land of smiles, the land of beautiful scenery, beautiful flowers, beautiful beaches and beautiful women!  However, when you dig deeper into the culture and begin to acquire life-long friendships, the despair and hopelessness surface.  The beauty is fleeting and the sorrow that accompanies generations of Thai’s worshiping false gods and bowing to idols can become overwhelming.  But God has made it possible for all people to come to Him and when I witness a Thai woman discovering her destiny according to God’s plan,  beauty radiates from within her – and through her eyes, I behold the beauty of the Lord.
