Happy New Year from Thailand! Yes…we just celebrated our third New Year 2023; the traditional January 1 st New Year, Chinese New Year and the Thai New Year which is celebrated mid-April each year. We have included some pictures of the children in traditional Thai New Year outfits.
Ministry Is On A Roll, God Is On The Throne and Life Is Good …It’s like the pent up energy from the frustrating challenges of the last couple years has been loosed. International travel has exploded, people are on the move and things are getting done.
New Land Update … We are thrilled to see the ongoing development of the new property. Since we purchased the property debt free in September 2022, here is what has been happening:
✓ Property was Excavated to our specs for future development. Roadway is graded, parking areas are graded, and major excavation done to prepare for soccer, volleyball, badminton, and takraw courts, as well as restroom and relax area facilities. Paid In Full
✓ Retaining Walls Built, over 400 feet of retaining walls have been constructed. This is in preparation for proper drainage and beautification of properties. Paid In Full
✓ Commercial Electric Installed, 150 KVA step-down transformer supplies ample 3 Phase electric across the property for our future development needs. Paid In Full
✓ Two Deep Wells Being Drilled, we went straight to the top … the head government official for water rights in Chiangmai Province is overseeing the drilling of two deep water wells. He is giving us a 6” bore whereas most wells are only 4” bores. Paid In Full
✓ Thank God for What the Lord…and Our Partners Have Done!
Time Sensitive Project …. We need to pave the roads and parking areas before the rains come.
- Road – 12,495 sq/ft of cement needs to be poured.
- Parking – 6,660 sq/ft of cement needs to be poured.
- Cost – $30,400 (a fraction of what this would cost in the USA)
Can You Help Us with this Time Sensitive Project? … Together we have come so far is such a short time. Tens of thousands of lives will be touched with the Gospel from this property.
You Are a Blessing!
