A Message from our CEo

Dear Friends,

As you know, we in HIS ministry hit a few setbacks in the year 2020, and we found ourselves needing to raise approximately $35,000 to finish the year strong. We set ourselves a goal of raising one thousand $35 donations, and HIS ministry team in Thailand committed to raising 10% of our goal within our community, here in Thailand. These were lofty goals, but they were necessary.

I am very pleased to share the wonderful news that we raised a total of $36,702.25 through this campaign. Thank you for helping us beat our goal by nearly $2,000! I also want to congratulate our team in Thailand for raising nearly double their goal. They were able to raise nearly 20% of our total! We saw the Lord work in powerful ways during this campaign. People showed up at the school asking how they could help, even though they had no previous connection. We even had new supporters come along who replaced the dilapidated black-top surface of the school yard, fulfilling a prayer request of over ten years.

We want to thank you for your prayers and for your donations. Each of you made a tremendous impact, and we are greatly encouraged as we finish this school year strong! Please join us in praising God for His faithfulness and in looking forward to what He will do next.
