Jeni serves on the leadership team at the New Life Center Foundation (NLCF) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Established in 1987, the New Life Center serves young ethnic minority (tribal) women who are at risk for, or survivors of, human trafficking, forced labor and sexual abuse. NLCF residents are provided with shelter, education, vocational and life skills training and legal assistance. Special therapeutic activities for survivors include comprehensive art, dance and music therapy and individual counseling. With degrees in development and Christian theology, Jeni provides administrative support, Christian discipleship and financial literacy training to NLCF staff and program beneficiaries. In collaboration with the NLCF’s senior staff, she writes grants, oversees the monitoring and evaluation of program outcomes and assists with public relations.
Jeni shares prayer requests and praises –
- March and April are summer break time for Thai schools, so this growing pandemic has caught some of our residents at home in their villages. There are pros and cons to this situation, but please pray for their safety. There is a reason they usually live with us and not at home. This concerns me deeply.
- There are a number of mental health risks associated with lockdown and quarantine. Please pray for me and others who live alone – that this would be a sweet time of refreshing with the Lord instead of a magnified time of isolation.
Praises to Lift Up Together:
- I continue to PRAISE GOD for the faithful provision of God through my Missionary Partnership Network who continue to give faithfully! This generous, consistent display of love, care, and provision is a constant encouragement and ministry of relief to me. I am so very grateful for each one who gives!
- God continues to lead New Life Center and myself into the immediate and long-term future. Praise God for choosing and anointing “Bee” as New Life Center’s director. Praise God for her faithful obedience and sense of discernment, trust, and godly leadership. She is truly a testament and fruit of the investment ABC/IM has made in this area.
