The Hmong students from the Foundation planted longan fruit trees. You can find some information about the trees on this website:

We are praising the Lord that we are able to purchase 2 rai (a little less than an acre) of land close to the university in Chiang Rai. This will allow our Hmong college students a place to live while attending. Most of the land is used for rice. It is low so that it allows for water during the rainy season. The only problem is that if want to put buildings on the land, we must put fill dirt on top.
If you are willing to help, we will need $10,000 to haul and put the dirt on the land. If you can help with any portion, it would be helpful. We have a small pond on the land (see videos below) and want to raise some fish in it. It will cost about $1,000 to prepare the pond and purchase fish. We also need $1,000 to change the names on the land deed.
The Hmong students have started their new school year (May-March). We witnessed 9 of the students coming to Christ as their Savior the last school year. We are praying that God will continue to work in the students that returned from last school year and will work in the lives of the new students.
Please continue to pray for a social worker the government is requiring the foundation to have. Somboon’s brother, Chai, is praying about this. He will need to complete a master’s degree. We are thankful he has a BS degree.

God has blessed us with some funds to be able to pour cement and put a new roof over the Hmong Foundation dining area. During the rainy season in the past, the students would have to eat with several inches of water and the roof would leak. We are praising the Lord!

The main needs right now at the Hmong Foundation 1) Help with the Hmong children's schooling. 2) The foundation needs a new roof over the outside dining area because it was damaged during the raining season. Also, there is a need to pour concrete to raise the floor so they would not have to stand and sit in the water during raining season. The pictures tell the story for you. These are immediate needs. Thank you for your financial and prayer support!

We are praising the Lord! This week, several of the students at the Hmong Foundation listened as Somboon shared the wonderful Gospel News with them. Several of the non-Christian students asked about salvation. Somboon wanted to make sure they understood clearly about the decision they were about to make. Eight of them said “Yes, we want to accept Jesus Christ as our Savior!”
Please pray for them. Here are their names and the first seven of their pictures are below.
We are doing well. Kathy’s follow-up colonoscopy went well. They did find two small benign tumors, which were removed. Camden, our grandson, is with us for two months. Thank you for your faithful prayers and support.
His servants and yours,
Duane & Kathy
