Beginning on November 1st Thailand is set to once again welcome international tourists from 46 countries without quarantine provided they have been fully vaccinated. New cases of Covid in Thailand have dropped below 10,000 per day and deaths now are dipping below 100. That is good news! However, there have been some new clusters of Covid in Chiang Mai and that is limiting travel to some degree. Please pray that those who are wanting to receive the vaccine will do so soon. The number of international tourists visiting Thailand in 2019 was nearly 40 million. But last year only about 6 million visited the country, and this year only about 20,000. This has played havoc on the nation's economy.
But we are pleased to report that God's Kingdom is doing well! And as you will see in this month's newsletter, the Great Commission continues to go forth! Our staff and children at the homes we work with are healthy and for that we thank God!
Thank you for your faithful ministry of prayer and financial support for our ministry in South East Asia! We continue to enjoy good health and are grateful for the honor to serve our Lord!
