Serving the Kingdom in Southeast Asia

Akha Dorm...

One of our good Akha friends here in Chiang Rai is starting a new ministry to Akha teenage boys. We were so excited when we heard about his plans and we wanted to share his project with you, so that you can join us in praying for him and the success of the ministry!

I want to help those who come from poor families and otherwise would not have an opportunity to continue their education by offering them a place to stay and being a mentor to them. Proverbs 22:6 says "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." I believe that God has given me his heart for young Akha teenagers in Chiang Rai and I therefore want to open a house for about 10 young men so that they can live together in a Christian environment and can be discipled. I want to provide opportunity to use the young people's energy to reach out to other people, on campus and in the city.

If you're interested in learning more about this project or helping with financial needs, please check out the Akha Dorm website.
