Zu Zu has become a sweet friend. She works with an organization in town called Global Child Advocates, who runs Sojourn Studios, which now hires three women in our community to make beautiful ceramic jewelry.
Last year Zu Zu began to help with Sojourn Studios. About twice a week she comes to our house to check in on the jewelry and the ladies; to give them additional instruction. She helps lead a bible study over tea twice a month.
She is always smiling, frequently laughing, and often encouraging. #agoodfriendtohave
Last week, as we were in the car returning from a training we attended together, she told me this story:
“Before I met your husband, when I had never met him, I thought he was Ed Sheeran.
I went to the office, and he was there. He came to see Kris, and they were talking together.
I asked my friend Ivy, ‘Ivy! Ed Sheeran is here! Why did no one tell me Ed Sheeran is in Mae Sot? That he came to our office?’ And Ivy said that she didn’t think it was Ed Sheeran, but that it was just Kris’ friend.
But I still thought it was Ed Sheeran, so I went to another friend and another, to everyone in the office and asked them why Ed Sheeran was in town and why no one told me! They all said it was just Kris’ friend. But I thought he looked just like Ed Sheeran!
Then I started working for Sojourn and I came to your house. And he is your husband, Stephen!”
This is when the friend sitting next to her piped in, “Ed Sheeran I love so much!” Then they all started singing. Y’know, Ed Sheeran.
