Let it Rain

We are currently in the midst of what has been called the worst flood in Chiang Mai history. But it’s not just this city that is under water, it’s pretty much anywhere in the country that is near a river. The weather predictions show at least two more storms coming before the weekend is over. Pray for Thailand.

If I were a real photo journalist I’d be out there shooting some amazing photos for you but instead I’m hiding out on high ground because I’m a bit of a germaphobe. Here are some shots of the city taken by friends:

The photo above is the street where my church is located.

For those of you that have visited Chiang Mai, this is the famous Night Bazaar. This photo was taken standing in front of the McDonalds (not pictured to the right) and last I heard, they are still serving food. Although you have to swim there to get it…

The local hardware store (think Lowe’s or Home Depot) located not too far from my house.

My friend Mark’s daughter standing outside the bus stop. The Ping River on the right is overflowing, causing the flood.

 

Many families are without homes and have lost all they own. There are people missing and several reported dead. Please just keep all of this in your prayers. Thanks!!
