Myanmar and Thailand borders each other. It probably takes 3 hours on car to get to the nearest border of Myanmar. As a result, many of them comes to Thailand to work. So, we have friends who have families affected by the cyclone and that's really sad.
I spoke to Joel and Ethaniel about how the cyclone has affected the Myanmar people. Challenging both of them to understand that these people are without food, shelter, hygiene facilities and many people are dead and they need our help.
Me: Would you like to donate some of your monies to help this people?
Joel: Yes. I will give them THB500 (RM50 / USD18)
Ethaniel: I don't think so.
Joel: You know this people are very hungry and without food. How would you feel if you don't have food to eat? Huh? Huh? Buying ATV is not more important that food, you know?
Ethaniel: I don't know. OK. I will give all my monies (That is almost THB4,000 (RM400 / USD150)
After a little bit of conversation regards to the people of Myanmar....
Ethaniel: I think I will give THB100
Me: That's OK. However much you give, it will make a difference to someone there. Most importantly, it comes from your heart.
This day, my children get a lesson to care about others more than themselves. I hope that they will continue to learn lessons like that all throughout their lives. The same lessons that Jesus has been teaching us, all throughout the bible and through His life.
