Sawattdee Ka! Warm greetings from Northern Thailand! Local people are celebrating the reopening of the border of Thailand and Myanmar which has been closed for three years. Initially, the closure was due to the COVID-19 pandemic and then political unrest in Myanmar.
Hi, I am Brenda Halk and I “work” with Canadian Baptist Ministries. At other times in my life, I have worked in education, in business, at home as a mother and homemaker. I have worked as a caregiver, as a volunteer and I love to work in my garden, where even the simplest tasks like watering or weeding, remind me that we are called to work, to be co-creators with God.
