During Songkran, the Thai new year national holiday, Thai Buddhists pour water on statues of Buddha. Throwing or pouring the water is meant to wash away bad luck from the previous year, and to represent purification and good fortune. As believers, we know that the only thing that makes us truly pure is the blood of Christ. IMB missionaries labor to share this truth with the nations. IMB Photo

The sun sets overlooking the gondolas at Saint Mark’s Square in Venice, Italy.

Piazza San Marco, Saint Mark’s Square, is the heart of Venice. As the largest square in the city Saint Mark’s Square has always been the location of important government buildings and other facilities central to the goings on in Venice.

Basilica di San Marco, or Saint Mark’s Cathedral, is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic diocese of Venice. It is the one of the best-known examples of Italo-Byzantine architecture.

The cathedral declares the wealth of Venice over centuries with its domes and turrets and gold mosaic standing out over the square.

Saint Mark’s Square, as well as being the largest square, is also one of the largest open spaces in Venice, a big contrast to the winding alleys and lanes within Venice.

The square is at the end of the Grand Canal and the waterfront is a delight going eastwards, a wide promenade.

In front of the square are the water bus stops and water taxi jetties; it is also the most popular location for taking gondola rides. IMB Photo

The Grand Canal and the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute of Venice, Italy. The Grand Canal is a channel in Venice, Italy. It forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city. The Grand Canal of Venice, also known as Canalazzo, is the most important waterway sweeping through this amazing city.

While the ancient canal measures 3.8 kilometers long, it snakes through Venice in a large S shape and splits the city in two. Starting from the Saint Mark’s Basin to a lagoon near the Santa Lucia railway station, the grand canal passes through the central districts of Venice with many magnificent buildings (erected between the 12th and 17th centuries) testifying the wealth and beauty of the city.

Santa Maria della Salute, commonly known simply as the Salute, is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica located at Punta della Dogana in the Dorsoduro sestiere of the city of Venice, Italy. It is one of the most popular churches in Venice. It is prominently positioned near the entrance to the Grand Canal. IMB Photo

The ancient town of Hallstatt in Austria’s Salzkammergut Lake District. It is one of the most famous villages in Austria. It’s also one of the most Instagrammed places on earth. It is one of the oldest inhabited areas of Europe because of the large salt mines. They have dated settlements back to around 1200 B.C.

Hallstatt is a UNESCO world heritage site. The region of Salzkammergut and the area’s salt mines were in use as early as the second millennium B.C. Salzkammergut, which includes Hallstatt, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997.

The quaint village, situated on Lake Hallstatt’s western shore in the mountainous region of Salzkammergut, is home to fewer than 1,000 inhabitants, an ancient salt mine, and unparalleled views of the Austrian Alps.

This view showcases both the village’s catholic and Lutheran churches. IMB Photo
