Gaudet Family Update – 9, November 2011

Greetings Brethren,

Beforehand let me apologize for the long e-mail… Your patience is appreciated.

Shipping: Many of you interceded and also gave so we want to report that next week a large shipment of Burmese Bibles is scheduled from here. All of the needed funds to complete the one smaller shipment we were trying to make has been given as well as a good portion toward another! This should about clean out the last container from the USA! We will update you after that has transpired. Actually it is quite overwhelming how it all came together. He is faithful! He wants His Word published and distributed more than we ever could imagine! All Glory to Him, and THANKS to each of you.

Flooding: Please continue to pray for the flooding situation in Thailand. Millions of people have been affected and great numbers have had to live with this for 5-6 weeks now. Areas of central Bangkok are just now being affected. It is estimated that it will be another month until the situation is closer to normal. Thousands of businesses have been damaged and hundreds of major factories are closed until the floods recede and repairs are made. Of course not only are people homeless but out of work. The longer this goes on the worse it will get.

The neighborhood and house we lived in while in Bangkok was flooded. That means Jeff Lange’s house was flooded as well as they still live there. They evacuated three weeks ago and are here in Chiang Mai now. We know of a couple of more missionaries who also had their houses or facilities flooded as well as several churches and of course their members. Pray much for them please.

Translation: A three day consultation with our Hmong co-workers and a Hmong/American missionary just completed today. Several important issues concerning translation were dealt with successfully. We appreciate Ge Chang coming to help with this. It was a sacrifice for him.

Tract Distribution: Over the next two evenings we will be handing out tracts during the annual Loy Krathong festival here in Chiang Mai. It was actually cancelled in the areas being flooded now, but in full swing here. Please pray as most of our co-workers will work on the streets with us during these times.

Survey Trip: We also wish to ask prayer for a survey trip I will be making to Incheon, Korea along with a couple of pastors from the USA. We are looking into the potential for an outreach during the Asian Games in 2014. Funds to pay for my trip have been supplied, Praise God! I will fly to Korea on the 26th of November. Please pray.

By no stretch of the imagination is this everything happening. Just the most pressing issues at this point are listed. We so appreciate your intercession. Your faithfulness to pray for the work here makes a difference. Please don’t stop!

For Souls Still Waiting,
Tom and Krinny Gaudet
