Please pray for Pieter Theron, our Field Director.  He is in Thailand for a conference and was posing for a picture with an elephant outside of Bangkok.  The elephant spooked (I do not know exactly what happened) and Pieter suffered a fractured skull and Richard Herring, our regional director, suffered a fractured hip.  Pieter did not lose consciousness and is in the hospital.  Tomorrow they will consult with a neurologist in Bangkok.  Haniki is with Pieter.  We will update more as soon as we know but please be praying for his recovery and how to proceed.

Pieter is from South Africa and a veteran of many safaris into the bush but he had to go to Thailand to have this encounter with an elephant.  Yana.
