Pianphipa is a sweet young girl who lives with her parents and brother in Thailand. She comes from a line of Buddhists and lives in a Buddhist household. Her parents are farmers, but they do not own their own land so they rent a plot. To keep expenses low, Pianphipa’s family lives in her grandparents’ home. Even so, there is never enough money to provide for all of Pianphipa’s needs. Pianphipa’s parents hope that she can go to school and receive a good education so she is able to provide for her family one day. Pianphipa dreams of being a doctor when she grows up! Thank you for choosing to offer this young girl hope for the future and for touching her life for Christ.

 

Bright Home Hostel

The Bright Home Hostel aims to help children devastated by their difficult environments. Many children have divorced or deceased parents and have nowhere to stay. At the hostel, children are developed physically and spiritually. The staff help the children with their homework, teach moral and biblical truths, and provide counsel to them. The hostel also partners with local churches to use their larger facilities for Bible teaching, activities and meals.

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.
