Amy and David serve families and children in an urban poor community in Bangkok. Many of the children here come from broken families, who struggle to make ends meet.
Some of the kids are made to work selling drinks on the side of the road, or they are left alone as their parents go to find work. Unemployment, substance abuse and teenage pregnancies are common realities.
But then hope comes into the picture.
“Each Sunday we have the opportunity to teach a group of children about God’s love for them,” Amy said. “The children get to know the forgiveness we can receive and the hope we have in Jesus.”
The kids have fun playing games and doing craft activities. But they also love reading God’s Word together and talking about how it applies in their lives.
During Covid, Amy and David offered practical support such as food packages to 40 families. And through connections such as these, they now support families so their children can go to school.
“A brother and sister stopped coming to our Sunday classes and stopped going to school, as their grandma had them selling drinks on the side of the road to get money for the family.
“Through connections in the community, we were able to help the family find support so their children could return to school.”
