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.
