New Land for ZOE!

There has been land for rent adjacent to the ZOE Children’s Home in Thailand for more than five years, and ever since then ZOE has wanted to buy it for agricultural training and a vocational training center.  However, because it was not yet for sale, we had to settle with renting the property.  ZOE has waited patiently for the past five years until the two acres became available.

Within the past few months, the land had become available, but ZOE did not have the cash to purchase the land outright.  Prayer was our only option because if the land were purchased out from under us, not only would we lose this option for student training, but there would also be a serious risk to the security of ZOE.

With the unfailing faithfulness of God, the Regency Lighting family, who had already purchased the new Boys’ Home at ZOE, committed all the money needed to finally buy the land.  Last month, ZOE’s children’s home manager and Chief Operations Officer went to the Land Department to make the final purchase.

Now that the land is in ZOE’s possession, we can expand our efforts to become self-sufficient through our garden, to begin carpentry, auto-maintenance, and other vocational trainings, and to train our kids how to grow an assortment of fruits and vegetables.

Thank you again to Regency Lighting for answering the call to further the efforts of child care and rescue in Thailand!

What an exciting way use a a few acres and a little perma-culture to build a self-sustaining generation in Thailand! A little land to build a lot of kids.
