Most of you will be aware of the political protests going on in Thailand at the moment. The implications of these protests may be that we don’t get to Thailand in the summer. Right now, the foreign and commonwealth office is advising that no-one travels to anywhere in Thailand, unless it is essential.
I’m worried. I’m worried about the people in Thailand, who are being hurt and concerned by these protests, but, perhaps more selfishly, I’m worried that we won’t get to go. I would be devastated if our trip got cancelled.
If you are the praying type, please, please pray for Thailand. They need all the help they can get, to make the country safe again, both for those who live there and for those who are visiting. People are being hurt almost every day, because of these protests. Pray for peace, for some agreement to be found between the red-shirts and the government. Pray that God will be in the country, showing those who love Him that He has not deserted them. Pray for Siam Care (the organisation we are supposed to be working with in Thailand) that they can do all in their power to comfort those in need, whether because of the fighting, or for other reasons. Pray for their safety as well.
If you are not the praying type, then do whatever you do when in trouble.
