Hello from Thailand

Greetings!

Hospitalization

Dear Friends, I am home today! Thank you God and all the prayers from all of our love ones in America. It has been very hard in the past two weeks. The pain that started on Monday morning, February 1st., at around 4.00 am was the kind of pain I never experienced in my life. I had back surgery some seventeen years ago to remove slipped disc. The pain and the numbness at that time was not compared to the one this time.

Laotian

Dear Friends, Thank you very much for all the prayers you have made on behalf of our Laotian brethren who had to stand the persecution last week. All f them sent their love and appreciation to all. As of today, they all had the investigation" done by the police and local authority. The charge was "Performing Religious Activity Without Permission'. All of the went home safely. They were told not to meet again to worship their God. They will have to wait till they get permission to meet from the Provincial Authority. They day they eat again, they will be arrested.

You may have been following the news concerning flooding in Thailand. More than 300 people died in the flood. 28 provinces are under the water. The pictures of people swimming to get food, water and help are common in the country. All the hospitals in the afflicted areas had to move all the patients to hospitals in other provinces.

Also, it rains is coming down very hard at my house. The sea level will reach the highest point in two days. The water right in front of my house is now more than three feet deep. They expected the water level here will reach six feet. It means that the water on the first floor of my house could be four feet deep. Today, young people from BSLI and RCC came to help me move the furniture from the first floor up to the second floor. The dining table and kitchen items are too heavy to move.

Dear Truitt, I attached the second quarter work report for you to read. This quarter was a great time for the work. My family grew closer together because Penjai started to be able to help me prepare for the trips more. I am not talking about preparing my suit case, but trip planning and the lessons. Yes, I admitted that she help me with the lessons I taught. The idea from the wife is great. Prae start to come to our BSLI full time. She graduated from Bangkok University three years ago. She worked with two different companies.
