Flooding - an update

I have been going out with the YWAM team and the Thai army. The floods are going down but slowly, some places have really struggled to get basic help such as water food and medication, and the water now after four months is very brown and full of rubbish and sewage.

Flood casualties 615 dead with 4 missing 17 provinces are still affected and 5 million people.

Also we have been using Place of Grace ministry to pack water medicine and food and Christian tracts. Many schools are closed till December 6th

Water, water, everywhere .....

Thank you so much for your prayers for us and messages of support. This has been a really stressful time in Bangkok as it has been going on so long, with the warnings and the lack of clear information.

Floods reach Bangkok

Please pray for the people of Bangkok and Thailand. So many people have lost what little they had and some of the children and teens who come to the Place of Grace have been affected by the flooding. Please look here at some photos.

Opening of Place of Grace

The Place of Grace opening evening was awesome; we prayed for people to come and they did. Thai and western families came to pray and hear the vision. Two months of hard graft by many people made it a very special occasion. We had 55 people during the evening.

The Place of Grace and the community work

Wow what a fortnight it has been. First we signed the contract agreement for six months on the Place of Grace, our new building in the heart of one of the many slum communities here in Bangkok. We have no furniture but we as a team are so grateful that we have a building. Then we had the joy of meeting with many children and young people in the local park near our building (go to photos).

We have a dream, and one that God seems to be opening doors for. The problems for those coming out of prison as well as for those living in the huge slum communities are so big. YWAM is working with a number of families and children in one huge community and has asked us to partner with them to reach more people.

One year in Bangkok!

Can you believe that we have been here over a year now?! It’s been an incredible journey, and so we thought that it would be fun to compile our (publishable!) list of the good, the bad and the ugly about living here!
