What an exciting day as we packed up 2 trucks and a van full of equipment and a mission team from American. Along with our local volunteers and staff, we took ten Breanna girls to a small village in the hills of Chiang Rai province. This was the village of one our staff at Breanna's House of Joy. On this outreach, our goal was to bless the villagers with a swing set but our mission went further. We ministered to the people, played with the children, feed anyone who would come with meals by purchasing a whole pig to feed the whole village. We talked to the people in Hmong, Thai and English, (with a lot of translations.) Our girls and staff went through the village talking to people about the Priceless cube, ( a tool to teach them about the danger of human trafficking.) We invite all to come to a special evening service at the church. They all came dressed in their tribal costumes. We had a wonderful time to share with them the Gospel message through songs and testimonies. At the end, the sturdy swing set is set up, which will be a special place for all ages to enjoy and we planted the seed of faith in the heart of the people. We prayed with the local pastor there for a harvest...
When a visiting team from America partners with Joy to the World Foundation Thailand's ministry by investing and building swing sets for the villages that we come in contact with, the partnership produced great fruitfulness. We come early in the morning and stay on to the night. Building the swing set in front of the village's church brings people from all around to come together. They have never seen anything like this. Men and women join in with helping hands working along side the foreign missionaries. Some have never step foot on the church property before, but on this day, they come to build something lasting: friendship with Breanna's House of Joy and a bond with our mission team, who gave to them. Our hill tribe girls have the liberty to go on an out reach as teams of 2's & 3's to share the message of the "Priceless Cube", to teach them about the danger of human trafficking, freedom found in Christ and invite them to the evening service.Their hearts are grateful for the swing and the feast that we provide for all who come. They come to the evening service, to hear the Gospel message. They learn about The loving God and The Savior of the world. They come to know Breanna's House of Joy as a safe place for them and their children.
