Please pray with us for our upcoming Thailand trip 

Hello Friends and welcome to 2021!
 
As you know, Kittikoon is here with us in East Texas working on his flight instructor license.  We are so blessed to have friends here in Texas and Louisiana helping us with aircraft, training, and testing. 

Once Kit passes the flight instructor checkride at the end of February we are planning to go with him back to Thailand.  There are many important projects there that need our attention.  For the aviation department, the most pressing thing is the annual inspection on our Cessna 172 that is due at the end of March.  While the plane is down for the inspection, we are also doing a complete overhaul of its avionics equipment so that it is safer during the burning/smokey season in Thailand.  We are bringing the radio equipment over with us from Texas.  Also, we will begin our drone program that will deliver medicine autonomously to our clinic inside Burma.  This new tool will save our medical team hours and even days of travel when delivering medicine to remote villages.  Sarah also has important projects that need her attention for FBR’s volunteer program.    
 
Currently, Thailand is still requiring a 14-day quarantine for all arriving passengers.  After purchasing airfare, booking the quarantine hotel and providing proof of Covid insurance, we will be able to apply for our visa from the Thai Consulate here in the States.
 
While no one wants to spend 2 weeks in any hotel, this particular hotel stay costs approximately $2,000 per person!  The chart below is from a government approved quarantine hotel. 


After adding it all up for our family of five and converting to the US dollar, we are looking at around $10,000 for our family to quarantine. 
 
We already have the $5,000 to cover our roundtrip flight from Houston to Bangkok.  However, we don’t want to purchase the flight tickets until we know that we can cover the hotel stay.  Please pray about this need with us and that if our Lord wants us to go now that He will supply what we need to get there.  In order to have our visas in time we really need to begin the application process in about a week.  It is crazy to think how expensive this quarantine is so that is why we are praying and trusting the Lord for His direction in this and asking for your prayers as well.
 
So many of you have faithfully prayed with us through these kind of circumstances over the years.  We have seen the Lord work and provide in amazing ways and we are certain He can do it again!
 
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
 
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.  Philippians 4:19-20
Our love and thanks,

Zack, Sarah, and the boys
