Delights

The Agape Home supports HIV children who live with their family. This Project Lek helps families stay together. Five years ago, Mae Robyn and myself visited several of these children in their very basic home, perhaps with an Aunt and Uncle or just Grandma. I remember one girl who was with her grandma, both seemed in poor health and living in poor conditions.  Just last week, this girl has joined the Agape Home.  It is a delight to see her taken under the ‘wings’ of several of the teenage girls who have helped her settle into her new Agape family. Grandma has died. Imagine trying to cook toast for 100

When He’s Welcomed

I have had the privilege of serving here at Agape for nearly three months – I actually leave to go home a week today. I would like to share one testimony that encouraged me greatly to have experienced. After our first two cell groups with the teenagers at Agape, we had a combined boys and girls meeting for all the middle-aged kids (about 10-14). It started off normally… We worshipped and we prayed, which was so powerful and God’s praise was heard loud and clear as Amnuy lead us on guitar. Avis and the cell group leader, Mae Boom, shared afterwards. However, right as Avis was in the middle of sharing, the electric

So much is happening in the lives of all those around you – the kids finished school this week, some of the older young adults graduated, and for the toddlers, well, watching ‘Hi-5’ every morning just never gets old. Just like any family, we’ve started to have a few more visitors these past couple of days, including students from Macarthur Anglican School from Australia, and even some German students from an international school here in Chiang Mai. Church is always encouraging – I attend A

Seven weeks, here we come!

I am excitedly looking forward to returning to the Agape Home for my 7th consecutive self-funded mission trip. I am so happy to have been granted extra luggage allowance from Sydney to Chiang Mai; to have received confirmation of meal vouchers to take the nannies and teenagers out for a meal at Sizzlers; to have received a bulk supply of metal nit combs, a box of leather thonging off cuts to make leather key rings and to have been given 175 new, cloth fitted nappies for the babies and toddlers at the Agape Home. Any home needs new items and treats. I keep returning to this home of 102 children as it is so rewardi
