Even though I am here in America for awhile, I have been working on the project in Thailand. Unfortunately, the guy who had promised to do a lot of work for the children has turned out to be a total slacker. He promised to organize meetings and didn't. In addition, the head monk has not been assertive (which of course monks never are) and the teachers at the school are not performing their jobs properly. The new headmaster is going to start soon, but it may be too late. The donor for the school, who happens to be in a different part of the same organization as the slacker, is frustrated that the school has not gotten its' act together and may pull the funding.
Sandy and I are considering making another short trip back to Thailand to try to get things back on track before we go to another country. We will decide soon enough.
