Brandy in Thailand...




As most of you probably know... my 18 year old Brandy has gone to Thailand for six weeks on a missions trip. We have been very excited about this, because since she was two years old, Brandy has told me she was going to go to other nations and tell people about God...although I admit to moments of doubt when we had some teenage difficulties with her the last couple of years...
However, God is good, and she is in Thailand, where she is supposed to be for about six weeks...
We have had some concerns though...The same day that she arrived in Thailand, we heard on Canada AM that there were some serious demonstrations going on and people were wanting to overthrow the Thai Prime Minister. Apparently there are several hundred people who are trapped in Thailand, and fifty or so people have been hurt in demonstrations. The major airports where Brandy is have been shut down, and they weren't letting people out of the airports. There was news that the military was planning on closing in. We were a little concerned...obviously...but last night we heard from Brandy, and all is well. She was actually not all that aware of what was going on there, and didn't realize it had become somewhat serious! They were flown in to a military airport, and actually never came near the violence, and they are staying at a slum area, where they are ministering...so she is having a blast so far..and enjoying her trip....That is all the information we have for the moment..
but we are grateful to know she is ok, and all is well...

Have fun my girl and honor the Lord...

I can tell you that the media does make things bigger than they are. So, I was not surprised that Brandy didn't know what was going on. I am glad Brandy is safe and all is well.

Dear Robyn,
How wonderful, Brandy is doing fine! I'll keep praying for her missionary works.

And - last but not least - my warmest congratulations for your new baby - Autumn is SO SUPER SWEET! I am checking in your stuff time by time but didn't comment - sorry for that...

Have a great weekend!
