Dar, the new caretaker at Nong Tao, is settling in and is proving to be a great source of help and enthusiasm. She has been tutoring children in their school work especially helping them with the Thai language. By acquiring a better command of the Thai language it will allow them to be more successful in their school work. Dar has been very active during worship including leading music and giving the sermon.
Thank you to those of you who sent funds to help meet her monthly salary. It looks like between donations through Hope Bridges and a donor in Thailand Dar’s salary will be covered for the next few months.
Overall the children are doing well with the exception of one child that contracted Dengue fever and was hospitalized for five days. To help prevent further cases of the fever the area round the home was sprayed to kill the mosquitos.
We continue to seek sponsors for our child sponsorship program, Bridges of Hope. A $40 monthly donation helps provide food, clothing, health care and eduction for a child. We have several children who have not been sponsored. Click here to learn more about Bridges of Hope or to sign up to be a sponsor.
