We'd like to invite you to participate in helping additional children and teens in our village in central Thailand!
The Bible says what GOD means - and GOD means what HE says: “Go and preach the Good News to all nations…” (Mt.28:19) - and that "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. But how, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?" (Rom.10:13-14).
About 15,000 people live in rural Tak - 20 miles around our main "Avoda" mission station. These are 15,000 precious souls for whom the Lord Jesus has died. Many of them are young people - who are searching for the meaning of life.
The Avoda team rescues teens from human trafficking and trains them to become disciples of the LORD Jesus. Then they will join in regular weekly outreaches - to bring the Gospel of Salvation to the people around us.
Now we are facing a serious challenge, AND WE ARE NEEDING YOUR HELP:
the condition of our 22 years old pickup truck is almost beyond repair. For the cost of maintenance we could already make a downpayment for a new car. It is dangerous and expensive to use it.
Also, the police is getting strict with traffic regulations, it means we are not allowed to take more than 7 people in our old car. But we would like to pick up 20 spiritually hungry kids and bring them to Avoda station - to feed them with the Bible Truth they need.
After several years of praying and considerations we know that NOW IT THE TIME we MUST PURCHASE a van.
Too many hungry souls are left out - too many people are not hearing the Good News -
Please take action now! Please - every single dollar counts. Maybe you decide to skip a cup of coffee, or a pizza - for the sake of children in Thailand hearing the Good News of Jesus Christ. Perhaps you are interested in conducting a fundraising campaign and help us in obtaining the needed van.
Please, prayerfully consider to contribute to our campaign, it would be a great blessing for us and the children we work with! Your donation is very valuable, so gifts of all sizes are cheerfully accepted as they are cheerfully given! You can make a difference in a lives of many people!
Thank you for whatever the Lord leads you to do!
(wondering why our totals up at the top of the page don't match the van cost? We've included the processing fees that Crowdrise needs to keep being awesome.)
