UPDATE 4th JULY: John and Maeo are also rejoicing that young lady from one of the New Tribes Mission churches in their area that they work closely with, who has committed her life to the Lord, has begun a four year course at the Payao Seminary which is to the south of Nakhon Phanom. Her name is Dtaa. CMN has funded her first seminar’s tuition costs (see picture at right) as she studies for a BA degree in Religious Studies and her home church has agreed to raise funds for her food costs and other living costs. Please thank the Lord for Dtaa’s commitment to these studies and pray for the provision of funds for tuition and living costs in the future.
The photo on the left is Dtaa. She is a graduating senior from her high school in Nong Khon Kaen. She has been accepted at Payao Seminary in Northern Thailand. She is asking for prayer for assistance in tuition – approximately $700.00 US for the school year. This includes room and board but does not include school materials and personal expenses. These costs would be about $65.00 US per month. Her family does not have the funds to support her; in fact, as I understand it, her mother would rather she go to work. Her father and mother are both farmers. She has one younger brother in school. Dtaa and Bee have been working together in their respective youth programs, combining activities a couple of times. Bee and Dtaa have attended a seminar in Bangkok and one in Khon Kaen concerning youth ministries. They have worked together with other youth leaders, conducting VBS camps. Please pray for God’s blessing that our prayers will be answered for this girl. Thank you and may God Bless, John
