CHIANG MAI, Thailand Friday, March 4: This week was final-exam week, and it went well! I think everyone (myself included) still
isnt convinced that the school year is over already.
We finished up exams on Thursday, and Friday afternoon we took the students bowling. They went one time during the Feast and have been wanting to go
back ever since.
We went to an enormous shopping center in Chiang Mai. The bowling alley was on the very top floor and had lots of blacklights, so anyone who was
wearing white glowed. The bowling balls were fluorescent, and there was lots of dance music, so the atmosphere made it a lot of fun too.
This Sunday is the end-of-the-year awards ceremony. Everyones looking forward to it. Were having the ceremony on Leon and Gloria
Sextons property and then going to dinner at a restaurant. After that Im going to stick around for the next week to pack and say my good-byes.
Friday, March 11: This was my last week at Legacy. Since the school year is over, some of my students have already left and are staying
with friends or relatives in the area during the break from school.
Of the five graduates, two will be staying here to help at Legacy, two will be going back to Burma to help teach there, and one will be helping an
organization in Chiang Mai.
I will be leaving this weekend. I know that it will be so incredibly hard to say good-bye. Ive had a really great time teaching and getting to
know the students, and I will miss them terribly.
I am leaving here on Saturday night, and I will arrive in the States on the evening of the 13th. I will give a presentation at church next week (the
Im sad to leave, but Im glad that I get to speak about Legacy and share my experiences with everyone back home.
