Relevant,

Thank you for your prayers for and financial investment into Safe Haven Orphanage. God is using your sacrificial generosity and prayers to make a huge impact in the lives of the children and staff at Safe Haven! Check out this month’s update…

 

Last month’s Global Impact Sunday

 

On Sunday, May 21st, we celebrated the work that God has been doing in and through Relevant in the lives of Karen people through the Global Impact ministry and looked ahead to where we believe God is leading us in the next year. In case you missed it, check out the 2017 Global Impact Update video we shared here.

Foster/Social Care Worker Certification

 

Over the past several months, Tasanee and Safe Haven have been going through a process for Safe Haven to be a registered “foster care house”. As Tasanee explains it, among other benefits, this designation would enable Safe Haven to continue to be home to and support children living at the orphanage who are over age 18 and who are still going to school in the local village. In May, Tasanee completed the Community Social Development Volunteer training, which is a big step forward in the credentialing process for Safe Haven to become a “foster house”!

Screen printing

 

A couple months ago, some of the children went for training to learn how to screen print as a source of income during their break from school. Here is one of the kids at work and one of their completed products!

Learning English

Recently, Safe Haven hosted a volunteer teacher who spent time teaching all of the Safe Haven staff English. Many of those at Safe Haven hope to continuing learning more and more English.

Umbrellas!

It is officially rainy season in Thailand. Now that the rain has begun to fall, the kids needed umbrellas. Because of the generosity of Relevant and other sponsors, each child received an umbrella!

Prayer Requests

 

Pray for Tasanee and Safe Haven and the ongoing foster care registration process. Praise God that Tasanee was able to complete and pass the examination for the community social development volunteer training. Pray for God’s favor as Safe Haven continues the foster care registration process, which will allow Safe Haven to help more and more children. Pray that through this, Safe Haven’s impact for Jesus in Thailand and Burma will be expanded.

 

Pray for the health, safety, and well-being of all those at Safe Haven and in Thailand/Burma throughout rainy season. Pray for God’s protection in Thailand and Burma during this time of year, when dangerous and sometimes devastating floods occur.

 

– Pray for the children at Safe Haven. Pray that God continues to provide for them in every way they need…for their basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter, for their physical health, education, and most importantly for their spiritual growth, that each child will come to put their faith in Jesus by asking Him to be the Forgiver of their sins and Leader of their life.

 

2 Corinthians 9:8 (NLT) “And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.”
