New Futures Thailand – Restoring Hope and Future for the Girl-Child.
We have been going to Thailand and ministering for 30+ years. It has taken us years to understand the plight of the at-risk young girls as they begin to come of age. Crushing poverty is the heart of the matter for so many families in Northeast Thailand. Often a loan shark will target a young girl’s family and deliberately loan them money for years at an exorbitant rate knowing that one day he will collect – by taking their daughter to Bangkok or Pattaya.
We have made many relationships with young ladies in our safe houses in Mae Sot. We also support a ministry in Phayak City. It is our goal to continue to support them in many ways. We like to provide Christmas or birthday gifts. But our larger goal is education.
Pray for Noi and Nan
Noi and Nan are two sisters in Uncle Dave’s house that are gifted both academically and athletically. They recently placed in the regional scholarship contest. At the same time, both win almost every race they enter. They both love the Lord and have great potential to be leaders in the Christian community – IF we can keep them in school.
Pray for sponsors to be raised up for Noi and Nan – to take them all the way through college. Pray also for the other 20 girls that we are helping to care for. Thank you for caring!
