There are so many ways that you can support the work that I am doing in Thailand.
What I covet most is your prayers: prayers for our partner church in Thailand (The Church of Christ in Thailand – which is not affiliated with the Church of Christ denomination in the USA) and its ministry throughout that country; prayers for the people of Thailand, that their hearts may be open to the Good News that the church has for them; prayers for the Christian Volunteers in Thailand program, that its work may change the lives of those who volunteer and those whose lives are touched by those volunteers; and prayers for me, that I may have wisdom in the work that I do and that my life may reflect the love and grace of the One who has sent me.
When you are with friends, share the stories that I have shared through this blog. Tell others of the work that Christian Volunteers are doing in Thailand. Share the challenges and joys of our volunteers and those whose lives they have touched. Give them information on how they can access this blog. Encourage them to read it and pray for the work that we are doing.
If you or someone you know feels a call to mission service, encourage them to contact the World Mission staff at the Presbyterian Church (USA). We need many more volunteers here in Thailand to share the good news of the gospel and to help the Thai people learn this global language (English). And, for those who are interested in this work, there is more information available on our website at http://www.teachingenglishinthailand.org.
I also invite you to contribute financially to this ministry. You can do so in two ways:
Individuals: As an individual, you can support this ministry directly through the Presbyterian Church (USA) via the ECO account number that has been assigned to this project: E200484. The ECO (extra commitment opportunity) number is for individuals who want to support this program.
Congregations: If a congregation, through its Session, Mission Committee, or other entity wishes to direct its mission support to the work that I am doing, they should use the DMS (Directed Mission Support) number that has been assigned to me. My DMS number is D507551.
To make a gift by check, please mail it to:
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
P.O. Box 643700
Pittsburgh, PA 15264-3700
Be sure to include the ECO or DMS account number in the memo line. The memo line of your check should look like this: “ECO# E200484.” A receipt will be sent to you when your check is processed. Be sure to keep a copy for your records.
