It is very difficult to determine the ins and outs of what is going on around us in Mae Sot–what is political or corrupt or happenstance; what is large scale and what is small; what is permeant and what is temporary.
And while we try to sort it all out, it’s even more difficult to communicate it in a way that honors our host country and government, our home country and government, and everyone in between.
More often than not, we just don’t say it.
We can say that we’ve learned a lot about the situation that occurred in our neighborhood last week, and we are understanding it more and more. We are understanding our options, evaluating our concerns, and praying through future decisions. And today we want to say ever-so-vaguely, that we received some very hopeful new this week about such circumstances!
Have I confused you yet? Or simply piqued your curiosity?
For now, we just want to say that we are hopeful for the ways God is answering our prayers. Please keep praying them with us! We don’t at all believe that our time here is done, particularly in this lovely little community that surrounds us, and we love it when we hear news that is promising for them! Keep the prayers coming!
