How such a little thing can create such a ruckus! COVID-19, the Biblical mustard seed of troublemakers. It seems hardly possible that life on this earth could be so thoroughly upturned, or that the “kingdoms” of this world, and the high and mighty of this world, could be so thoroughly humbled.
It seems hardly anyone could be unaffected. Our brothers and sisters in Thailand and Myanmar have certainly been impacted, enduring the same fears and uncertainty and the same drastic, government anti-measures as many others on this febrile planet of ours. In Chiang Mai, the Bible Education Centre was vacated in the middle of March as fieldworkers made a premature return to Australia. We have only 2 local, ecclesial members remaining in Chiang Mai – Bro Ebenezer and Sis Ang. Bro Neh Nae and Sis Vicky returned to Myanmar last month after finishing their university degree courses and failing to find suitable work in Thailand.
The spread of covid-19 infections appears to be slowing in Thailand so restrictions may soon be easing there. As of writing, both Ang and Ebenezer are safe and healthy. Ebenezer has begun live streaming of the Memorial Meeting which will involve brothers and sisters from Australia and New Zealand.
