I have traveled to other countries many times, and I never know what to expect. I try to keep an open mind and be ready to adapt to any situation I might find myself in. I recently had the opportunity to travel along with my co-worker, Stan for the ministry I work with and be part of a unique experience.
One principle of the ministry I work with is cultural relevance. We talk about culture in countries other than the US, but this trip was a little different. Our production team from Thailand was invited to film the testimony of a Thai-American dentist living in St. Paul, MN.
It was a rare and interesting opportunity for them to offer a reversal for our US mindset of missions and show us what cultural relevance looks like as our Thai co-workers did “missions work” in Minnesota.
