Adonai Child Rehabilitation (ACR) is a Christian faith-based ministry in Myanmar that was established on May 20, 2016. This ministry creates a place of rehabilitation for children and teenagers from various backgrounds like orphans, unwanted children, street children, and poor children. We are partnering with them to help provide nutritious food for their 11 orphans this year, as well as some other basic necessities like school supplies, clothing, and bedding.
Thanks to our donors, Henry and Lisa Chang and Grandma Chu's Love Fund, our fundraising goal for ACR this year has already been met!
TFish representative John Kieu visited the Kampong Cham Children's Home in Cambodia on June 4, 2016. He met the orphans in the current home and also saw the new dorms being constructed that we are helping to build.
The Taiwanese church that we support is bearing fruit not just in their prison ministry, but also in their outreach to the local Vietnamese community. On Sunday, June 12, 2016, this church baptized a 95-year-old lady.
It all started when the 95-year-old's Vietnamese caretaker became a Christian at the church a few years ago. At first, the caretaker's boss (the elderly lady's children) treated her very strictly and didn't allow her to have Sundays off. She cried out to God, as she desired to go to church on Sunday. The church also prayed fervently for her and this situation.
Three months ago, the caretaker asked her boss if she could bring their mother to the church service, with the condition that if their mother didn't like it, she would never ask again. After the first church service, the elderly lady really liked it. Despite her hearing problem and language barrier, she has not missed a church service since then.
Praise: Job Provided for Hýõng
Again, praise the Lord for his answer to our prayers. Last time Hýõng pleaded in prayer for a job. Within a few days, she found one. The experience really strengthened her trust in the Lord.
Upon leaving for the workforce, she reminded us to provide the phone number and address of the church near her factory.
Prayer Request: Healing and Jobs for New Group
Please pray for another group of workers that just arrived at the shelter. So many workers are mistreated, and as they suffer, their families back home also suffer.
For example, three men were illegally assigned to work at a big restaurant and were forced to work from 5am to 8pm with no breaks. They were paid 12,000 NTD (a little less than $400 USD).
Another example is a lady who just left the shelter to care for an elderly man. The elderly man just liked to sleep in the same room with her and took his clothes off. She couldn't take it and went back to a shelter at a different location.
Stories similar to these abound. These migrant workers not only need jobs, but far more than that, they need God to heal their hurts and wounds.
