About the Field
I will be going to Pattaya, Thailand, to help start El Dream Christian International School (ECIS). I will be working as the principal in order to serve marginalized children through education.
Our goal is to provide excellent Christian pedagogy and instruction to children who are at risk for trafficking, orphans, and missionary kids so that they might come to know God. We want to raise these children up into their new-found identities to then go out into the world to be salt and light.
Pattaya is also colloquially known as 'Sin City' as it is a major hub for gang-related activities, drugs, and prostitution.
I sincerely covet your prayers as I am trying to be obedient to God's calling.
Please Pray for...
- Personal strength and guidance as I serve as the principal.
- Spiritual growth and deepening of my faith during this missionary experience.
- Well-being, growth, and spiritual development of the students.
- Encouragement and equipping for the teachers, staff, and fellow missionaries.
- Positive relationships with students, parents, and the local community.
- Grace and understanding in adapting to the local culture.
- Effectiveness and impact of the school's outreach programs.
- Personal health, safety, and mental well-being.
- Language learning for better communication and connection.
