After 16 days of being trapped inside the Tham Luang cave, four youths of the Wild Boars Thai soccer player team were rescued last night. The official press conference informed the public that the next rescue mission attempt will start within 10 to 20 hours as oxygen tanks need refilling.

Risks were laboriously evaluated and hard decisions had to be made. The option to wait out the monsoon rains proved more dangerous as it could take 4 months to let the heavy rains pass and all that time could further seal the Tham Luang cave and doom the Wild Boars Thai soccer player team and coach trapped inside. There was zero option to train the kids first in diving before commencing with the extraction as the rescue was deemed a "race against time and water." Weather was favorable the past couple of days. Some water had receded and efforts from the team to pump water out lowered water levels inside the Tham Luang cave. This lessened the time of diving as they gained more ground. thai cave rescue

With difficulty, they decided to bring out the healthiest ones first. This move gave them a better understanding of the situation and the challenges they need to prepare for as they extract the weaker ones later on. This move also hopefully further boosts the morale of the remaining Wild Boars Thai soccer player team and coach. Knowing all safely made it out will heighten their spirits and keep them positive all throughout the dangers of getting out of the Tham Luang cave. thai cave rescue

Container Gardening: Planting KangKong in Pots (Water Spinach)

What Does Romans 8:28 Mean About All Things Work Together For Good?

All things work together for good Romans 8:28 is a well-known verse that Christians usually memorize or list down under "God's Promises." It says, "We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God:  those who are called according to His purpose." Is this really a promise from God? Is this a sure promise that we can claim? Is Romans 8:28 true? Or is the Bible lying in this particular verse? Because, by experience, people know that NOT all things turn out good in the end. So, what exactly does this Scripture mean? And is it for everyone? Let's take a closer look at Romans 8:28 and understand what the verse is actually telling us today. Romans 8:28 in different bible translations We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose. (HCSB)/similar in form with NIV. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who lov

Why Reading the Bible Is Not Enough

Reading the Bible is not Enough Reading your Bible is not enough . Hearing God's message from preachers is never enough. 3 minutes or 5 minutes with God using Our Daily Bread or some devotional books is not enough. We Christians need to stop making excuses for our laziness. We need to deal with the fact that we're backslidden. We've grown cold. There's something terribly wrong when we're comfortable and satisfied with reading a few verses, and content to just sit back and listen to others talk about the Word of God. We need to be IN the Word. You and I need to be students of the Word. You need to hear from God and encounter Him yourself. Receiving encouragement and teaching from others are good but you need to discover and process God's very words yourself. Listening to other people's experiences, ideas, and understanding about God and His Truths can only carry you so far in your faith life or Christian walk. It's your personal time wit
