Prayer Updates from Bangkok

 

Praises!

We praise God for the new and deeper relationships we are making in the “red light area” as we do food distribution five days a week.

 Prayers!

Please pray for the Central Asian mom and child who entered our program on Tuesday as they wait for country borders to open. Pray that they come to know the love of God in a new relational way. Pray for adjustment into our program and for funding to send them home well equipped for their future.
