May these women trust in the Lord with all their hearts and lean not unto their own understanding; in all their ways acknowledge Him and He will make their paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Raising TCK’s (third culture kids) is a complex endeavor at best. Parents’ desires are for each of them to have a personal belief/walk with God and that they grow into healthy (spiritual, emotional and physical) functional adults. Various cultures, transitions (hello’s and goodbyes), schools, parents’ relationship and ministries, settings, and pace, all influence their search for identity, purpose and sense of belonging. Please pour out Your spirit of wisdom, discernment, perseverance, love, grace, humor, patience, forgiveness, and provision as the parents influence these unique kids to become all that You desire them to be. It is definitely a faith journey for all involved.

THAILAND: Thailand means Land of the Free which is tragically ironic as the country is known for the rampant corruption that permeates society. Child abuse via prostitution and slavery plagues the country. Over 90% of the population is Buddhist whose social and cultural web makes it very difficult to follow Jesus without family consequences. Church growth has occurred largely among those of Chinese descendants. We pray that the church and its leadership would be lights of truth and boldly confront the social ills of the country. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
