Final phase of construction at Blessing Home Isan

The final phase of the Blessing Home Isan (our second Blessing Home center which is located in Northeast Thailand) is under way.  The sanctuary/large training center is currently under construction.  This building will be used as a sanctuary for the Almighty God UMC as well as for large training events for Blessing Home Isan.  The church has been using the classroom building at Blessing Home Isan, for Sunday worship but it is crowded.  This new building will give much more room for the church to grow.

Here is a video that TMM missionary Carol Fare posted a few days ago of the foundation being poured by mixed and poured by hand.

Please pray for TMM missionary Vicki Brown, who has been having health problems.  Living in Thailand can be a challenge for anyone's health, especially if you work with poor children and families.  Serving at Blessing Home taxes the immune system of missionaries and staff alike, so your prayers are needed.

Carol and Vicki sent out a delightful newsletter from Blessing Home Isan.  Here is a link to download it.

First week of school at Blessing Home Isan

TMM missionary Carol Fare, Prau (assistant to Carol and Vicki), Frame (Prau's younger son), and TMM missionary Vicki Brown
The new school year had begun at Blessing Home Isan and we are very excited that the second Blessing Home center is now fully operational.  It is through the ministry of TMM missionaries Carol Fare and Vicki Brown that middle school and high school students will now stay in school through graduation rather than be sent to Pattaya and other places to work and send money back home to their extended families.  The trajectories of the lives of these teens at Blessing Home Isan is being changed so that these children will not be trafficked.

These are 14 of the 17 at-risk students who are receiving scholarships at Blessing Home Isan for this school year.
Carol and Vicki are helping teens at Blessing Home Isan to thrive in two ways.  First, they are providing scholarships to at-risk teens to keep them in school.  Teens that cannot afford to stay in school end up in Pattaya and other places, and they are at great risk of being trafficked.  Carol and Vicki have discovered 17 teens and children who are most at risk and given them scholarships to attend school.  These scholarships cover their school uniforms and shoes, books, transportation, and food.

Second, Vicki and Carol teach English to a group of 32 students (14 of these are scholarship students) so they will have extra advantages in education and vocation.  English is the language of international commerce, so Thais that can speak fluent English can get jobs that pay very well.

Altogether, there are 35 children in the Blessing Home Isan program in its first week.  What a great start!  Thank you prayer warriors for praying for this ministry.  Please continue to lift up Carol and Vicki in your prayers.

Pray for Peace in Thailand



Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, has been removed from office along with many in her cabinet.  We are requesting for prayers for peace in Thailand at this time.  Because we must remain neutral, we cannot speak to political issues.

Here are some links to news articles for more info.
