Health Update

We wanted to update you about the health of the team. The health issue that started a few days ago with four from our team was originally thought to be isolated incidents of food poisoning. It has now been diagnosed as a viral intestinal bug. The bug lasts for about 48 hours. We as a team are taking precautions to prevent any more people from getting sick. Dr. Easterling bought some bathroom cleaning supplies so we can regularly disinfect our bathrooms. We will be washing all of our clothes and bed sheets, as well as being more intentional about not sharing clothing, food or drink, going to bed early and getting lots of sleep, drinking a lot of water, and eating regular meals. Jenna, Kristy, and Alicia are all feeling a lot better today after a day or two of rest. Kai is still at the hospital near our guest house and Santisuk English School. Mai Kia was taken there today as well. They are at the hospital not out of severity of the situation but because it is the closest health clinic in the area. We would ask for your continual prayer for our team, especially those who have been sick and are still sick. Please also be in prayer for the three girls at Latkrabang. Please be in prayer for the spiritual well-being of our team. Several on our team feel the sickness is a result of spiritual warfare. Pray that God will continue to protect us against the devil's schemes. Please be in prayer for what God is doing and will continue to do here in Thailand. ~Lauren
