You meet all sorts of weird and wonderful taxi drivers throughout Thailand but yesterday was the first time that I have knowingly met a Christian one.
Thai people only ever sit in the front seat of a taxi if all the rear seats are occupied. As an Australian I only do this if i want some peace and quiet or am on the phone etc, otherwise it is up front and time to have a chat. I am glad I sat in the front on this occasion as I spotted a picture of Jesus on the cross with the words ‘dying to know you’ and a bible on his dash board. What followed was a great conversation about his conversion to Christianity and how his parents don’t like it. What a great trip it was and as a bonus I am now the proud owner of that picture and the thai/english bible!
