Heidi and Joan Headed to Thailand This Week!

The simplest message is oftentimes the most powerful message: one “we love you”, signed by the small hands of the ones who remind us what unconditional love looks like.  This banner, shown above, signed by our own Grace Church kids will be making it’s way around the world this Friday to the kids of GROW in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Though Heidi and Joan will leave our banner in Thailand, they will be returning with a new banner signed by the children of GROW.

GROW’s mission is “to rescue at-risk children and youth by supporting, educating, and providing them with a safe place to live, grow, and learn about Christ.” Grace’s partnership with GROW involves short-term trips to build relationships as well as financial and prayer support. This Friday, Heidi Christner and Joan McCracken are leaving for a three-week trip to visit the children and staff at GROW. We ask that you join us in praying for their safety and health in addition to God’s blessing on the relationships that will be strengthened during their trip.

As you keep Heidi and Joan in your prayers, remember to keep praying for the ones whose little hands will be receiving the Grace kids banner. Pray that as they read and trace the names of our little ones with their hands that they would know they are loved; pray that this love would help guide them to the higher love of Jesus Christ.
