Thailand (MNN)–Thailand remains under a state of emergency following a series of raids on its military. Violent attacks in the Muslim-majority south make some officials fear the scope of terrorist threat in the area. Trans World Radio’s David McCreary explains there has been very little direct impact on their workers. “We know that ministry is happening there. We also have heard from a listener in prison that said 26 prisoners were listening to the programs and also doing Bible correspondence courses. So, we’re quite encouraged by that.” McCreary says while there is concern the unrest could spread north, they believe their ministry is safe. “Our broadcasts come, primarily, from a local transmitter and also shortwave broadcasts from Guam. So, we feel pretty confident that the broadcast is still getting through despite the uprising. We would just ask that people would pray that the broadcasts would continue to reach those that He intends them to reach.”
Thailand’s troubles won’t disrupt the work of the Gospel of peace.
