Thank you for your prayers

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
for Chandler.  He continues to improve each day and both his Dad and his brother are with him now in Bangkok.  He has lived in Thailand for several years and also has loads of friends who love him and will be there to cheer him on.    Luck was on his side when he arrived at the hospital as a neurosurgeon who was trained at one of the best hospitals in Canada made his way through the battle area to be there to perform his surgery.   Time will tell whether any of his injuries will disable him permanently...so continued prayers are appreciated.

I haven't seen Chandler for 10 years,  but corresponded with him last summer to get a photograph of my cousin's dog to paint for her that I blogged about here.    He also granted me permission to paint any of his photographs.  Chandler is a gifted photographer and journalist with a passion to understand and inform the world of the on-going political tension and corruption in Thailand.  If this subject interests you, please visit his websites listed below.  And keep your eyes open for his film - A Land Apart which should be released later this year.

Trudi, thank you for your update on Chandler's condition. It's comforting to know that family is with him and that his friends will give him lots of love and encouragement. I'm convinced that guardian angels surround us - they certainly surrounded Chandler. BTW - I took a quick hop over to the websites. Chandler's pictures are incredible! What a gifted photo journalist. Prayers will continue. Blessings & Love, Terri xoxo
