Asia-Pacific Regional Office:  The global Church of the Nazarene and the Asia-Pacific Regional Office have been keeping a close eye on the political developments in Thailand over the past week.

On Thursday, it was announced that the military had seized power in an effort to bring calm to escalating protests within the country.

Our in country personnel are reporting that all is currently calm in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, and that the ministry team from Olivet Nazarene University (ONU) that is currently in country, is doing well with no concerns at this point.  Please keep in mind that international media often provides somewhat biased reviews on actual situations.

The Southeast Asia Field, Regional Office, and Global Missions Team are monitoring the situation closely.

Your continued prayers for the peaceful resolution of  the the ongoing political crisis are greatly appreciated!
