Jessica gives her final report datelined Chiang Mai
By Jessica Wilson

In this issue The Journal publishes the final report from Jessica Wilson of Tyler, Texas, a 22-year-old student at the University of Chicago. Until recently Miss Wilson helped out at the International Leadership Training Center, operated by Legacy Institute in Chiang Mai, Thailand, serving there with the aid of a scholarship from the Church of God Big Sandy.

CHIANG MAI, Thailand— Friday, March 4: This week was final-exam week, and it went well! I think everyone (myself included) still isn’t 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. Everyone’s looking forward to it. We’re having the ceremony on Leon and Gloria Sexton’s property and then going to dinner at a restaurant. After that I’m 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. I’ve 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 19th).

I’m sad to leave, but I’m glad that I get to speak about Legacy and share my experiences with everyone back home.
