We are excited that the children’s home in Nong Tao now has a third adult caregiver for the 42 children living there. This is definitely an answered prayer! This allows the caregivers some respite time! Hope Bridges would like to provide for a small salary of $125 each month for the new caregiver in addition to room and board. Unfortunately, we haven’t obtained a source of funds to do that yet.
Dar is a graduate of a four-year Bible school, which would be equivalent to high school. The opportunity for her to work at the children’s home keeps her from having to return to her village where there would be little chance for sustainable employment and more of a chance of succumbing to the ravages of poverty such as illness, trafficking, and drug addiction. She is currently helping the children with their schoolwork and learning Thai language because their native language is Karen. She also helps with meal preparation and general adult supervision.
Please be praying for Dar’s funding and if you would like to help with this you can donate here. You can also send a check via mail if you prefer.
