It is summer in Thailand. We just completed the biggest holiday of the year: Thai New Years. It is also called the Water Festival. Basically it is just one big water throw...for three days.
The original purpose was to "wash away the old" and prepare for the new year.
Thailand is struggling with some old problems politically. In our 50 years of living in Thailand we have seen several events of this kind. Fortunately such events have never adversely affected us or the mission work we do in the country.
During such times we pray for the royal family, government leaders and the nation. It has been our experience that such events soon pass away and the Thai people resume their daily lives,.
We ask for prayers for our nation as well. Pray for peace and stability, for without these, people are often too preoccupied to listen to our message.
Prayer for kings and those in authority is an essential part of our mission work, whether it is the missionary on location or the sending church back home. I Tim. 2:1-4. This is so that we may live in peace and holiness. Have you ever tried to witness during times of political struggle? We have. It is not an easy time.
So pray with us, for God wants all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth.
