Check out photos below of the kids heading back to school photos and the new school uniforms Safe Haven was able to purchase for the children, with the help of our financial support.

CELEBRATING “BIG MOM”

 

Tasanee shared ,“My life is for the children. I always remember these words that one of the kids told me, ‘Big Mom, I am very lucky that I have you, Big Mom. If I didn’t have you, Big Mom, I don’t know how my life would be.’”

 

She went on to say “My work is hard and difficult sometimes, but I have to keep going to take care of these children. I would love to thank you for your donations and support. Because of your love and kindness, the children are growing one by one. I’m thankful that we can continue to work together to help the children grow up, have a good future, and then the children can help other people as they have been helped.”

 

Happy Mother’s Day to Tasanee (Big Mom), a wonderful and amazing mom to all of the children at Safe Haven!

UPDATE ON TASANEE’S MOM

 

Last month, Tasanee’s mom mother was sick and in the hospital. We’ve been praying for her healing, after she required surgery to remove gallstones. Tasanee asked to pass along this message: “Send my big love and many, many thanks to all of Relevant Community Church for praying for my mom. Now, she is better. In just a few days, the doctors will take out the last tubes.”

 

 

OUTDOOR WORK

 

Rainy season is just around the corner. With that being the case, Tasanee, the kids, and staff at Safe Haven have been busy. This month, they’ve been working hard to plant some of the seasonal vegetables, as well as preparing for annual flooding expected once rainy season hits by building sandbag barriers.

PRAYER REQUESTS

 

Pray for the children as they head back to school. That they will be able to understand their schoolwork and lessons, learn, focus, be diligent in their studies, and be a light for Jesus at their schools.

 

Pray for Tasanee. Praise God for the amazing “Big Mom” she is to all of the children at Safe Haven and all that she does for them. Pray that God will sustain her and give her wisdom, strength, patience, and perseverance for each day as she cares for the children and fulfills her role as director of Safe Haven.

 

Pray for the health, safety, and wellbeing of all those at Safe Haven and in Thailand/Burma throughout rainy season. With rainy season often comes flooding, which can be potentially dangerous and devastating to some areas of Thailand and Burma. Pray for God’s protection over these nations and people as rainy season begins this month and runs through late September. Pray for Tasanee’s mom continued recovery from surgery.

 

 

Zechariah 2:5 “And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will be its glory within.’”
