VISION AND PARTNERSHIP

We are Marc and Andrea,  missionaries to Thailand.  We have 6 kids, and 5 of them are adopted.

     God believes in adoption; it is what He does. We believe that God is turning the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers.  

     Thailand is full of unwanted, endangered, and broken children. There are 67 million people in Thailand and only 1.6 percent are Christians. Over 5 million of Thai children are enslaved in child labor, and an increasing number are becoming victims of sex trafficking. An estimated 20 percent of girls and even boys between the ages of 11 and 17 become involved in the sex industry.

     We lead a study abroad program called APSAI, Asia Pacific Student Abroad Initiative.  Every year, American students come out to Thailand and spend a semester with us reaching the unreached, teaching English, working in the slums, serving in coffeehouses, and teaching dance to children.  For four months, we get to pour God's heart into these students and bring out their identity and destiny in Christ.  We want these students to be wrecked in the presence of God and get a heart for the unreached of Asia Pacific.  Our heart is to teach them to pray, soak in God's presence, and hone the ability to hear God's voice and develop deeper intimacy with him.  Yes, these students receive college credit through classes, cultural trips, and language learning, but our passion is to see these students come away from each semester with a renewed passion and love for God and what His heart beats for.  You can check out this amazing program by visiting APSAI.org.
