It is the very rare person who looks forward to multiple, multi-hour flights to get to a destination half a world away. But, the Thrive Volunteer team members were willing to put themselves aboard those long plane rides because of the joy of serving the women who will attend the two Thailand retreats. By 4 pm on Thursday afternoon, the team had assembled in our “office space” to begin our time of preparation. Times of worship and prayer will balance our times of training and preparation. We’ll enjoy bonding as a team as we get to know one another in this beautiful setting just a few blocks from Phuket’s famous beaches.
