At the end of February, we said goodbye to longtime staff member, Ning, who has been serving with GROW since 2012. I, Faa, have been personally very blessed by her heart for the GROW children. We are all very proud of her and the work she has done here. We pray for the Lord to bless her in her next endeavor as she moves to a nearby city and continues to work with youth.
Our first two children have started college. One is studying accounting at a vocational college in Wiang Pa Pao about 20 minutes from our campus. Her dream and hope is to be able to help GROW in the future. The other girl is studying Chinese Language at Mae Fah Luang University. I am so happy to see these…
In Wiang Pa Pao there has been heavy rain these past few weeks. Last week we had a very bad rain storm, and most of the area in WPP was under flood waters.
In 2012, we began praying for land to expand the ministry. Faa invited people to pray over the land to which she believed God was leading her.
She is the youngest of three girls, her two older sisters have been at GROW for about nine years. The girls’ father is currently serving a life sentence for drug trafficking, a crime with strict sentences in Thailand. He was arrested when she was still a baby. But her life changed when she was nine years old.
The corn field shown in the picture is behind the current boys’ home and is the future site of the new boys’ cottages. The field has been harvested and the ground is in process of getting ready for the building to begin. The current boys’ home has a capacity of 10-12 boys. The new boys’ cottages will be a place for older boys and will house up to 30 boys.
