Update from Pattaya

Kop Khun Kha - Thank You
Kop Khun Kha - Thank You

Ken has developed into our little engineer. At the beginning of the after school program in January of 2017, Ken was of low self-esteem and had a sense of defeat. We learned mom had moved out the previous month. We also learned his teacher at school shamed him often to the class telling him he would never be anything more than poor. The staff of GRACE encouraged and assisted him with his homework. His regression soon transformed into him learning English, finishing his homework in an adequate time, playing with new friends and building impressive structures with Lego blocks (bridges and cranes). His dad works in construction as a crane operator. Mom has since restored their relationship although she works out of town. Ken is always excited when she comes home for the weekends. He likes giraffes, the color blue, eating fried rice with pork and cake, math and playing all sorts of games. Ken's story has always be one of my favorites. It's through generous donations from you, our supporters, that we are able to make such a difference in the lives of children, like Ken, from Georgia to Thailand. His story is just one of many and, with continued support, could be one of hundreds or thousands who's lives are impacted in such an incredible way.

About GRACE in Pattaya: Mai and Chan are making home visits to evaluate each family. Many are suffering with Omicron. Nevertheless, they are excited to open soon for day camp. A couple of our families are moving to their home provinces to help their older generation with work; some are going for the summer and will return before school starts in May. Some schools are providing classes to help children catch up as many fell behind this year. Many of our children were directly impacted as the main public school did not provide an online option and was closed most of the year. Our GRACE day camp program has a strategy to help the children and parents are eager for our opening. Many people have moved to the city seeking work. The cycle begins again as the city is very transient. Mai and Chan have already identified several new children for our GRACE program. Please continue to pray for our staff, kids, and families as they navigate these waters.
