In 2018 one of the most watched news stories was the rescue of the youth football team from the Tham Luang caves. A park ranger explained that the caves would get 10 to 20 visitors a day but now visitors number more than 6,000. There has long been a shrine to Nang Non, a mythical princess, next to the cave entrance, where people could make offerings to her spirit. Caves are traditionally viewed as places of great mystical power in Thailand and the seemingly miraculous rescue has enhanced her allure as a bestower of good fortune. Pray that many who visit the shrine will have an encounter with our Heavenly Father, the God of all power and blessing (The Bible, Joshua 4:24).
