Thanks for prayers

Sorry that we haven't been in contact but we haven't had email for the last while.
Thank you so much for your prayers. God is just so good, there have been times when we believe he intervened to stop widespread violence breaking out, and now there is talk of peace. But please don't stop praying yet. This week we tried to go home and John went to the car rental place at the end of our street, and suddenly there was a loud bang and some sort of missile hit the bridge next to him. The street then went mad with police aiming their rifles all over the place. He wasn't sure whether to get down or get inside. Thankfully in all the confusion he was able to drive his car the wrong way down the street (common in Thailand!) and get out of the area.

Today the yellow shirts blocked the road next to the protests to make their presence known. Until the protestors go home the situation in our area remains tense.

We have been staying this week in a couple of rooms given by a family from school so the girls can attend school. Next Sunday (16th) we are due to move into a house near to the school, and we are just clinging on waiting for that, desperate to stop moving around and to stop living out of suitcases, and to pick up building a life here but thankful to God for his mercy in this nation.

We really, really appreciate all your prayers.

Blessings to each one of you,
With love John, Gillian, Leah, Natalie and Joel xx
