Soggy but Safe in Chiang Rai, Thailand

October 16, 2011 Journal

  In case you don't get Asian news:
"Seasonal monsoon rainfall continues to flood wide areas of central Thailand and scattered locations in northern and northeastern Thailand. These conditions are expected to continue for at least several more days.  The Bangkok Metropolitan area has experienced localized flooding in northern and eastern areas and most reports indicate that the flooding risk for the Bangkok area will peak between October 16 -18.
 Extensive flooding in Thailand, especially in Central Thailand between Bangkok and Sukhotai, has caused considerable damage and loss of life.  In many flooded areas, surface transportation has either been suspended or diverted around those areas.  Portions of highways are closed and bus and train services linking Bangkok with points to the north are suspended."  U.S. Embassy Bangkok

There is not flooding in Chiang Rai area, but we are soggy!
Work at the new buildings continues at a snails pace. Teaching continues amid packing up for the move in two weeks. The other teachers have a terrific spirit of cooperation.  We're trusting the LORD to
as our teacher in life's school.
"Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long."  Psalm 25:4-5 NIV
We pray:  We are Your willing pupils in the classroom of Your choosing
with the lessons You plan for us.  Thanks for Your Holy Spirit that teaches us
how to be willing to study in Your school.
