Please keep Thailand in your prayers. Clashes have intensified in Bangkok just within the last day or so and it’s hard to say where it will lead.
In several provinces and other areas outside of Bangkok, a state of emergency has been issued “in a bid to ensure security for the general public.”
A state of emergency have been issued several times over the 4+ years I’ve lived in Thailand, so that in itself doesn’t necessarily mean anything. But the possibility of more conflict breaking out throughout Thailand is high. Still life here in Chiang Mai seems to be same old same old. Which is a good thing. It’s hard to say what’s below the surface though. But my point in writing this update is to ask for prayer for the fighting going on in Bangkok and that there would be a peaceful resolution to all the on-going problems in Thailand.
