Before we even left Emmaus, we had our fellowship tanks FILLED up! Thank you all for lavishly loving on our family in so many ways: meals, activities, gifts, and most important of all, your time! We have some very sweet memories from our 2020 furlough.
We praise God for going before us every step of the journey back to Thailand.
The next step was getting checked into our quarantine hotel, which was to be “home” for the next 10 days. Once again, Nat had all his ducks in a row and the check-in process was smooth. The nurse checked us over and gave us instructions as to checking in twice a day with our temperatures. The kids soon grew familiar with “temperature check time!”
Many were praying fervently for the two Covid tests we needed to take while in quarantine. Our kids were brave troopers! After getting tested the first time, my daughter came over to me and said, “ouch. That actually hurt.” She was right; it was extremely thorough. I got a text the next morning saying the laboratory had to rerun the results. We immediately began praying and sent the requested paperwork in, just in case. How thankful we were within an hour when we got the results back - negative! All glory to God.
After Day 8 and a negative result, we were able to go to the rooftop. We enjoyed almost an hour of fresh air and checking out the view before the rain came. God’s timing! Because of new restrictions, we couldn’t go back to the roof until the last day. But God in His grace allowed us to endure well, and we know so many precious saints were praying that way!
I’m sure by this point you too can clearly see God’s Hand of blessing. There’s so much more, but I’ll stop there for now. Truly “it is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD” (Psalm 92:1)!!
Living in Thailand is a daily adventure for Anne Williams and her family of five. In between all of the many language blunders, running after toddlers, and giving the neighbors plenty to smile at, she is grateful God’s grace is always available just when she needs it.
