Archidphon is a precious child living in Thailand. He is the youngest among his three brothers and sisters. They are a Christian family and are from the Karen tribe. They live together in a village located in the Chiangmai province where there are many pine trees. Archidphon’s parents both work in the fields in order to provide their family’s basic needs although there income is not enough to pay for their children’s school fees. With the help of your sponsorship Archidphon will have the opportunity to grow up healthy receiving nutritious meals, medical attention, clothing, education and he will learn of Christ’s love for him. Thank you for blessing Archidphon and his family with this gift. God Bless.
The Museekee Hostel is a refuge for children with difficult family circumstances. The hostel provides a roof over their heads along with running water and electricity. Three nutritious meals are served daily to the children. They also receive medical attention when needed. The hostel partners with a local church where the children are invited to participate. A member of the staff shares a lesson from the Bible every day, and children are encouraged to share the Gospel with their fellow villagers as well.
Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country, and many people also believe in the spiritual realm. Children from poor families go to state-run schools where teaching is sub-standard. Their parents normally have little education and cannot be relied upon to help them. School children seldom reach the ninth grade and most end up working in family farms. Since the people have very low or no education, they lack basic knowledge of life skills like personal hygiene, household management, family planning and balancing budgets.
