As of August 2014:
Maintenance to current Plant & Property:
Like any other building site in Chiang Mai, Thailand and around the world, Mother Nature is relentless. Some of our buildings are over 10 years old now. We need help with landscaping, such as leveling and making the grounds easier to maintain. We need to develop a solid maintenance plan. We also need the corresponding funding plan. Do you have Maintenance skills? We need The Plan, The Funds for equipment, small tractor, lawnmowers, hand-tools, etc., and The Workers. Do you fit in there somewhere? Might God be prompting you to get involved? Please send a message and tell us what you’re thinking.
As with the physical facility, the technology used to run the operation, is in need of a good, solid plan and the volunteers to run it. However, the difference here is that some of this work can be done virtually, IF the infrastructure is set up for that. Do you know hardware and/or software? Maybe you could help in some way? Again, we need The Plan, The Funds, and The Workers. With God, all things are possible, right?
The Children: Education and Training, IT Skills, Learning Center:
We have a vision. Our children are growing up healthy, spiritually equipped to spread the gospel around Thailand, and physically and mentally able to do most any occupation. But like anyone else, they need solid education, the tools for learning, and a safe and secure learning center. This takes planning, funding, and volunteers to run the learning center. How has God gifted you in this area? Could you lend a hand, and potentially change lives for generations?
Another group home at Jawaree:
Did you know that we have the foundation in place for another group home at Jawaree? Yes! All we need now is about $50k to build that house. That’s it? Perhaps you could take this opportunity and run with it? Perhaps you could help with the fundraising project. Perhaps your community, church or company would like to get behind this fantastic chance to meet the needs of at-risk families both today and tomorrow. Imagine – a new Ba’an Jawaree building dedicated to the Lord, perhaps with your organization’s name in the cornerstone? You could then come and help build it, and in the future send teams to help the future families live and prosper. It’s a potential game-changer. A world-changer.
