Starting to Get Back to Normal

LHMT staff worked hard to clean the floor in the bookstore

Although the flood water is still in the homes of some of the Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) staff, the director and her staff were able to work in the office every day this past week.

A few days ago the water level dropped low enough that the water is no longer coming into the building.  In addition to doing some normal ministry activities the LHMT staff were able to clean the floor in the bookstore.  The floor is now dry and doesn’t seem to have any major damage after being under water for nearly one month.  A desk, a cabinet and some of the wooden bookshelves will need to be repaired or replaced, but we thank God that there doesn’t seem to be any serious damage.

The water level in the road in front of the LHMT office is now at about 50 centimeters (20 inches) and Changwattana Road (the main street near our office) has four lanes that are dry.  Only the lanes next to the curb are still flooded.  Some of the boats are beginning to disappear as the number of vehicles on the roads increases.
