Fold enters into our 7th year of mission work in northern Thailand. By the grace of God and the love from our supporters, we have been able to guide hilltribe children and young people onto the path of Jesus Christ. We focus on presenting the truth of the abundant and eternal life Jesus has prepared for them, and encourage them to make that pivotal decision to take on the role of disciples. Over the past 6 years, God have blessed FOLD to witness many young people giving their lives to follow Jesus and serve His church. FOLD currently supports 6 Bible college students and a 3 intern ministers. Praise God, in 2023 FOLD received $87,127 in donation。Our expenditure was $90,875.
2023 was the year our students presented greater impact on the spiritual growth of children in our orphanage. Because of the implementation of our discipleship program with FOLD’s college students, their spiritual growth positively impacted the faith of our children at the orphanage. Newly designed activities promote much more connections between students and children, and the examples demonstrated by our students are shaping godly characters among the children.
2023 was the first year of our discipleship program implementation. We received very positive feedback from many students. Our 3 intern ministers felt they were especially built up through learning and sharing during discipleship. We plan to implement new schedules in 2024 to further our disciple making effort.
Our family also entered a new chapter of our path with God. Both of our American daughters are in universities. Our elder daughter Priscilla will be completing her 3rd year as an Literature major and Linguistics minor. She is preparing for an exchange program to Italy next year. Our youngest daughter Paulina will be finishing her first college semester soon. But she has already answered God’s call to become a missionary to Thailand upon her university completion in education. This family of loving disciples have been blessed beyond measure.
Please pray for the spiritual and physical health of our family, the children ,and students we support.
Please pray for our revised discipleship program for the college students in 2024. So more young people will commit to walking the path of disciples.
Please also pray for each child in our orphanage to develop into genuine disciple of Jesus.
