Siam: Kenneth's Letter to Adelle


Kenneth wrote a letter to his mother dated October 19. He describes the city he was in, talks about his evangelistic endeavors in that city, the market, the celebrations and boat races, dress styles, customs, etc. Kenneth gave some 100,000 Gospels in the region. Kenneth met a friend of his, Captain Peterson, while he was in Nakhon. Kenneth was hoping to finish the east coast before the rainy season.
