Praying for Thailand

This is next in line for our short mission trip. The husband has been praying for it years ago. It started when someone prayed for him at the church and saw a vision of him in Thailand. Since then, he has been praying and he's been longing to see what God has planned for him in that country.

We are praying that the trip will happen this year, probably on the last quarter of the year. I've also been reading a lot about Thailand and I know for a fact that the weather there is also very humid. Just like in Sabah where temperature is also super warm and humid, plain walking will get you all sweaty , a natural belly fat burner I must say.

Here are more facts from the CIA world factbook:
RELIGION : Buddhist 94.6%, Muslim 4.6%, Christian 0.7%, other 0.1% (2000 census)
LANGUAGE:Thai, English (secondary language of the elite), ethnic and regional dialects
CLIMATE: Current Weather : tropical; rainy, warm, cloudy southwest monsoon (mid-May to September); dry, cool northeast monsoon (November to mid-March); southern isthmus always hot and humid

Please join us in praying for Thailand.

Aquarium Fish I like

Me and my husband are considering getting ourselves an aquarium fish/es since we can not have dogs or any pets in the house we are renting we thought fish/es would do good. A friend actually encouraged us to have one. He said aquarium fish is not hard to maintain, there are variety of fish that are not expensive and fish food I think is not that costly too.

But what made me thought about it seriously is the benefits you can get for having such. Like the following:

1. It is a good therapy
2. Studies say that gazing at it reduces stress (i need that)
3. It lowers blood pressure

and a lot more. But for the "reduce stress" benefit, I think I'm gonna go for it.

Do you have an aquarium fish? How do you take care of it? Is it expensive? How many times do you clean it?
