Dear friends and sponsors,



Twenty-four new students have joined our family, swelling the numbers of precious children in our care to 123. We are very proud of Awe, Quan and Naa, who are looking after our 30 girls aged 6-12 so very well, and to Nice, Thaa and P Baa, who are taking such good care of our 16 similarly-aged boys.


It was a great challenge for three of our new children, sisters who come from a slum on the outskirts of Krasang, to remain with us due to their life experiences to date. We have great respect for their poverty-stricken mother who was gently insistent that they remain with us.


Because of our supporters’ generosity, we recently had the joy of sharing God’s love in practical ways in our local community. We paid for the school fees and expenses of 12 of our village children, helping to keep them in school. It costs $70 to clothe and equip a child who attends primary and secondary school. This is a huge amount for a family who are up to their eyes in debt to the money lenders. We also donated a sum of money to the school which 36 of our tots attend to refurbish their broken toilets.


Additionally, we enabled a former house mother of ours to continue her education to undergraduate degree level for the second year in a row, and we are continuing to sponsor a single mother who lives in the hills of Chiang Mai. She is deaf and dumb and was taken advantage of by a man in her village. We have also helped to support the grandmother of one of our grade 7 boys for many years. She takes care of his severely mentally-challenged mother who was similarly abused and lives a short distance from Krasang. What a privilege it is to share God’s love and provision with these precious ladies!


Our 15 college students return to college on August 4, including our three new students and our five students who will graduate from college in March 2025. They have been a great help to the house parents of our five homes throughout the month of May, and we are very proud of them.


We are deeply grateful to Deycho, one of our alumni, and the paint company he works with for donating 20 five-gallon tanks of paint to Grace Ministries. Duan and her team, ably assisted by our college students, have begun to paint the walls in our homes.


The rains have come, the temperatures have dropped, the trees and shrubs have been refreshed, and the grass is reappearing as if miraculously throughout our compound. Witoon and Thaa and Dtic have planted our rice and will care for our crop through the rainy season until harvest time in late November.




Heartfelt thanks to each of you for enabling us to express the father heart of God to Thai children and to the poorest of the poor in our community and in other provinces. We could not do what we do without your love, prayers and financial support.


Yao & Doi, Ewe & Witoon and Yoke Fong & Charles
