Immediate Needs!

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!

Praising the Lord!

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. 
1.Mechai Laowiliyakul
2.Tawaan Sealo
3.Shayut Seama
4.PhimPha Seaya
5.Weesuda Seaher
6.On Seaher
7.Doaw Seasong

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

Poor Hmong Student has Desire to go to University

This young Hmong girl stayed at the Hmong Foundation until she graduated this past year. Her name is Nawaraat Saysong (nickname is Creem).  She has a strong desire to go to university but her family is very poor. Her parents have said no because they do not have the money.
Please pray for her! If you are willing to help, please give through CMC (tax deductible).

Hmong Girls Going to School - May 2015

The Hmong girls at the Hmong Foundation are off to their first day of the new school year. They are leaving from the girl's housing on the campus. 

This is the small road leading into the Hmong Foundation.  

They will walk about 1 1/2 miles to school. 

We are praying for a passenger truck for the rainy season.

Hmong farm in Chiang Rai

 This past January, we had Dwayne Yoder and his wife, Joyce, with us here in Thailand. We have an interest in starting a farm concept in order to help the Hmong become completely self-supporting. Dwayne is a farmer from Virginia who came over to help give us some ideas.

 One thought was to plant date trees.
 Dates from the harvest.
 Sachi Inchi plants were another idea.
It is also known as the "star" seed.
