Parade of homes in northern Thailand

A couple weeks ago I surveyed 13 different villages representing 6 different people groups in northern Thailand to get a feel for how we could serve them.  Needs ranged from water, medical, HIV/AIDS awareness, education, agricultural training and various degrees of economic poverty.  This perfect storm can lead to children being swept out of the villages and into the trafficking epidemic.  Pray for us as I revisit the highest priority villages next week to equip and empower the local churches which will hopefully begin the journey of walking alongside them to transform their villages.

Let the equipping begin!

Last week several students from Ch1na arrived who will be staying at our training center for a couple weeks.  While they are here we will be providing as much training as we can.

Today I started a two day Leadership Conference with a church staff here in Chiang Mai.  This will be the main church we'll be partnering with as we reach out into the Hill Tribes.

Both groups need prayer for wisdom and boldness.

Hello Dear Ones,
