The project will raise the educational level for numerous children and improve the overall standard of living for their communities in rural Thailand.
Chuck and I have been going through a massive transition since responding to God’s prompting to return from Thailand in October to care for Chuck’s parents.
This project seeks to raise $3,000 for cement blocks for each of the 18 classrooms, and a total of $315,000 to complete the new facilities for CRICS.
After 18 years since our arrival to work as International Ministries global servants in Thailand, we are moving back to the United States next month. Chuck has tendered his resignation from IM and will be stepping into a new role as senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the middle of October. Ruth is in conversation with IM regarding the possibility of a role with IM that will utilize her experiences in Thailand/Asia and allow her to continue responding to her call to ministry.
On August 29th, the CRICS (Chiang Rai International Christian School) 2017-18 school year will begin, marking the 20th year since its early beginnings as the Family Learning Center of Chiang Rai (1998).
