Historic days are approaching for Thailand. Parliament has been dissolved and elections have been slotted for early July.
Last year there were political protests that turned violent, and over 90 people lost their lives. These protestors from the rural parts of Thailand are known as the “red shirts.” Their opponents (the “yellow shirts”) shut down airport access during one of their protests and brought much damage to the nation’s economy.
The world will most probably hear about Thailand in the news again within the next few months. This upcoming election will be a tipping point for Thailand one way or another. In addition, Thai troops have been fighting Cambodian troops on the border over disputed territory, and Islamic violence continues to plague the south daily.
Please pray for Thailand and our people!
