Even though Thailand is a popular tourist destination there are very few Christians living in that beautiful country. There is a desperate need for Bible workers. The President of the Adventist Mission has requested funds to sponsor Bible workers in the South of Thailand in addition to those working in the North. It costs about $240/month to support a Bible worker in Thailand.
Imagine a TV broadcast in Asia that will allow production in over 80 languages and have the potential to touch over a quarter of the population of the world!
The focus will be on health, family and lifestyle issues, and the Gospel presented by and to each nationality.

Give the Gospel "wheels" by sponsoring a bicycle for a native worker in India. These dedicated workers face tremendous challenges in finding transportation in the remote areas where they labor. Many of them walk 3-10 Kilometres (2-7 miles) between villages where they witness. Some walk farther than this. For just $80 you can provide a bicycle to a worker in North India. 25 Bicycles are currently and urgently needed.
Since moving to the country where there are no taxis our orphan children need a vehicle to get to school and to Church and town. And since the used car market is rather treacherous we think a Force Cruiser 15-passenger SUV will be best.
We have 11 precious children who are complete orphans, most of them do not remember their parents at all. They are currently living in a small house but we have purchased property in the country for them and are awaiting the end of the school year, and to finish drilling a well, to move them to their new home. You can sponsor the basics of one child for just $25/month. Some of them need sponsorship to go to High School and later College, Lord willing.
