New Cartoon Book

creative timeDuring the school holidays, we have no outreach programs in schools, so right now this is giving us a great opportunity to create a new cartoon book. We are so excited to be producing this new book together as a team and the theme of the book is "Change". The focus of this theme is on testimonies of our lives and how God has changed us. We are hoping through this that the children will come to know that God can change them too, that we can all become ‘new creations’.

The project will take us several months to complete, but we are getting a good start on it while the children are on holidays. We have each committed to writing different sections of the book. Some are doing games and activities pages while others are doing bible story pages. We even have science experiments to write up in the book. It is a great project, and a very large task. Please be praying for us over the next several months as we work together on this. 

Bible Correspondence Lessons

We are excited to have another 16 children from a new school wanting to join our bible correspondence lessons. The school is very supportive of the children entering into our program and is helping them by posting their responses to us and distributing new studies to the children when we send them out. 

facing obstaclesVision

Kanchana: I thank God for the calling He has on all of our lives. For me, as I have now been serving God in children’s ministry for many years, I find it so interesting to note that our vision has never changed. We have had to change personally, and we have had to adapt the ways in which we reach the new generation of children, but our vision is the same… “to reach Thai children who have not heard about Jesus”. For all of us, there are many obstacles that we face. I have faced many, but God is always faithful, and your prayers are powerful.


Personal Stories

Prayer Requests from the Team

Kanchana: Please pray for me as I continue to follow God’s calling to work with children through the team and through the church.

Pray also for the 549 children of the juvenile detention centres who participated in the activities of the Nong Rak Club. One of these young people has now been released and has accepted Jesus as her saviour.

Nut & Palm: Working on the cartoon book is still a new experience for us. Please pray that we will have God’s wisdom, anointing and creativity so that children will meet with Jesus as they read this cartoon book. Please also pray for us as we make videos for our social media channels that are not only fun and entertaining, but that also introduce children to Jesus and teach them how to live a good life.
