This last Monday I was humbled to receive the Kon kon kon award for showing mercy to the poor. Fancy being honoured for doing what we are commanded to do.

At the ceremony I was presented a small Buddha statue, to represent small Buddha, who needed to go to heaven, but he wanted to stay in this world longer to show more people the way to heaven. I was also presented with 50,000 baht.

They made kind speeches, citing that I was singled out because I was a Christian and a foreigner, showing Thai Buddhist people how to live and love.

I had my students cook dinner for the people, as well as translating for the guest speakers.
