They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”
                                     - John 8:33

I came across this scripture while I was out taking pictures and having my quiet time.

One big point of pride in Thai history is the fact that they were never colonized by the British...or French..or anyone. 

Coincidentally, they have the hardest time with English, while countries like Lao can speak English quite well.

How the Jews responded to Jesus though would almost be how a Thai person would respond. 

"A slave? to what? We've never been ruled by a non Thai!"

Yet as I read this, I watch many many people enter the temple to make merit.

Slaves to sin, to fear, to works...it's all here! 

Please pray for their slavery to end!
