Thai vendor represents the art of tea pouring & Forgotten Foundation props

HT: 22 words on the vid. But I want to use this post to drive traffic to the new and improved Forgotten Foundation website (www.forgottenfoundation.com). They have some new videos up, courtesy of Josh Montoya, and tons of info, links, and opps to buy some new shirts. We all need some new shirts.

The Forgotten guys are doing great missionary work among the Karen people of Thailand. First off, they're not over there bible thumping a bunch of people they don't know or love. They are bring God's word in a way that meets ALL the needs of the people. They have initiatives as wide ranging as an organic farm, a school, medical care, and pastoral training. The best part is that they are working with the Karen, learning from them, in a humble posture. These guys aren't 'trained' 'missionaries.' They're some entrepreneurial crazy heads from ABQ, all with day jobs, who have a heart to put hands and feet to their feelings of concern and compassion. They saw a need and decided to do something about it. The church has a LOT to learn from these guys. I can't say enough good things about the cool stuff that the Word&Spirit are accomplishing in Forgottenland. Check them out, buy a shirt or sticker to suppor the work, and go affect your own change in your own world today.
