Prayer Updates from Bangkok

“Thank you for praying. There is so much need around the world, but it is inspiring that you still have time to pray for us. Our hearts go out to all who’ve lost loved ones or struggled because of COVID-19. There have been many losses globally and much grief and frustration. At the same time, we’ve been blessed and amazed to see the goodness and generosity of so many rise above the challenges.

It is a time of great shaking and exposure. Though all of this, we have the opportunity to find out what is essential and what [or who] we can really look to for hope and purpose. God is good in the midst of it all, and we celebrate His goodness. He is our hope and anchor.”

“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” [Psalm 27:13]
