Our province - Samut Prakan - has largely been spared damage from these floodwaters, although parts of our province are now becoming flooded. Samut Prakan is the last province the flood passes through before spilling into the ocean. We are immediately south of Bangkok and at the mouth of the Chao Phraya River. That is to our advantage - at least the floodwaters had somewhere to escape (i.e. into the ocean).
Below are some images of the flood in Thailand. I stress that none of these pictures are my own, I have merely taken some off the Internet. After viewing the pictures, could you please note the prayer points at the end of this blog and take a few moments to PRAY for THAILAND!
It's sad what people cling to in a crisis - this person clings to 120 baht (around AUD4)
Prayer for Thailand
- that believers would continue to be 'His Hands and Feet' to the vast numbers of people in need;
- that people would see help coming from Christians as coming from the the Living God, the Only One who can help them in their time of desperate need;
- as floodwaters gradually abate that water-borne diseases would be controlled (note: there are already reports of people in the Central Plains suffering from water borne diseases).
