Coats Family in Chiang Rai: May 2009
Scott and Tan are
jointly appointed missionaries of International Ministries and Mission to Unreached
Peoples. From their home in Chiang Rai, they engage in holistic leadership
development ministries among the minority peoples that inhabit the hills of
and neighboring countries. Scott is the founding director of the Mekong
Minority Foundation (MMF).
Scott writes: Our
big news is that our Chiang
is now officially open! We had the Grand Opening on Friday, 20 January. Each of our three kids participated. Though Tan and I are involved in the school,
we thought we would be pretty much just observers at the event. But at the last moment, I was given the task
of translation from Thai to English and English to Thai for several of the
speeches. So, in the end most of the
Coats family helped out at the event.
We thank God for
each of you who have given so generously to make this place a reality. It’s just a miracle. Chiang Rai now has a quality Christian
English medium school that’s legally approved by the Thai educational
authorities. God is so good.
- Pray for Scott and Tan as they minister among the hill tribal people of northern Thailand.
