Blessing Home Expands Ministry
We want to thank all who have faithfully supported Blessing Home. You are a great blessing to the children who are at risk in Pattaya. Blessing Home serves as a life saving station for children ages 3-12, providing food, clothing, school uniforms, education for those unable to go to school, transportation to school, Christian education and nurture, and community support.
Because of the faithfulness of support for Blessing Home, another staff member has been added so we can increase the number of children receiving services from fifty to sixty four! Next problem to solve is the overcrowding we now have in our two story building. There are plans to convert the flat roof into a third floor enclosed playground and shelter. We will tell you more about this in the future when more details are in place.
This week, we checked on the progress of the Chicken Farm Cooperative at Bowin UMC. The members have done much work. They have started erecting a chicken barn, a house for the caretaker family, and a pump and pipes for all of the waterworks. Here are pictures of the project from several days ago. The caretaker house and waterworks should be complete by this morning, and hopefully the chicken barn will be completed in a week or two. It will probably take a few months to complete the fencing. As the NY VIM team that helped to build the first section of fence, building bamboo fencing is labor intensive.
Please keep us and the church planting pastors in prayer as final preparations are made to planting 4 more churches by March 1st. We are very excited. Future blog articles will talk about each of these new churches.
