We did it! Thanks to all of you! The financial goal of 11 million baht or around $355,000 to allow NightLight to purchase the building in Bangkok has been raised!
Alise and Mark will serve at the House of Love and House of Blessing in Chiang Mai, Thailand. These ministries were established by IM missionary Kim Brown to serve tribal women and children coping with problems caused by AIDS, disabilities and migration from their rural villages to urban slums. Alise and Mark’s ministry will focus on the discipleship and spiritual development of children and staff, administrative responsibilities and community development.
Kim works with a team of indigenous leaders to manage a multi-faceted response to the needs of tribal peoples: HIV/AIDS prevention education, care for those who are HIV+ (including the House of Love for women and children affected by AIDS), ministry to people with disabilities, youth ministry and education and economic development work among migrants in locations spanning from traditional villages to urban slums.
Kyle will use his gifts to provide leadership, mentoring and coaching with staff in taking part in state-of-the-art information mapping. Kyle will join with Southeast Asia national leadership to seek justice for oppressed populations and to strengthen human rights and dignity.
Karen is the program consultant to the New Life Center Foundation. This ministry, based in northern Thailand, serves ethnic minority women who are at risk for labor exploitation.
