We are told that “it is Satan’s regular employment to hinder the work of God, and to work for the destruction of the race.” Praise God, we are also told that “a guardian angel is appointed to every follower of Christ. These heavenly watchers shield the righteous from the power of the wicked one.”
Having this knowledge makes it easier to maintain a calm in the midst of the storm. In this case, literally. You can read more about our storm here.
In spite of the distractions, we are finally able to share how God is blessing His local workers here in Asia.

1. 2014 Karen Bible/Medical Missionary Training.
Our three month Karen Bible/Medical Missionary Training began March 16 with fifty-four students.The students are receiving practical knowledge of God’s word in connection with the medical missionary work. Many students are applying their new knowledge of Bible, Health and Media to advance the Three angels Messages in Asia. After the first month, six students were transferred to the foundation in Mae Taeng to begin a six week Media Evangelist course.
We are in need of a small solar system at our Mae Ta Woe Learning Center.
We have purchased a couple of solar panels and batteries to test and have found them to be a great alternative to turning on the diesel generator to run lights, projector, and charge batteries.
The cost of the system will be $3,500.00
To contribute, please visit the donate page and mark your gift “solar”.
2. E. O. F. Media Evangelist Training Program.
Education Opportunity Foundation’s first six week Media Evangelist Training Program began this month. We are planning to continue with a series of training programs designed to build a team of knowledgeable, consecrated workers who are enthusiastic about using media to reach the people of Asia. We are thankful to have Jesse Norris here for a few months to share his knowledge of media with our local workers.
The Education Opportunity Foundation is in need of two more iMac computers for our Media Evangelist Training Program. It will cost $3000.00 to purchase the needed computers.
To help us supply the local workers with the tools they need to be efficient workers for God, you may mark your gift “iMac” and send it to the Leading to the Light address listed below. You can also donate on line by choosing the “Thailand Projects” button and writing “iMac” in the message box.
3. English Camp at Education Opportunity Foundation.
It was time for English Day at the E.O.F. dorms. They had just finished their final exams the day before and this day was to be a celebration with a practical component. We invited our friends the Knechts to join us. After a short morning worship and introductions, we split up and each took several children to practice their English for an hour. We all had a great time getting to know each other and are looking forward to continuing our friendship when we return from break. When the day ended, we all felt thankful to have found a purpose in our lives centered on service for others. We are looking forward to the students return this week.
The highlight was the interactive games we played. Here is a short video clip of our fun day.
4. Htee Kho Village Church Dedication.
In 2012 we made a call for our partners to help five Karen families from the mountain village of Htee Kho build a church.
The agreement was that Leading to the Light would help supply building materials and the five families would build the church. I am happy to report that the church is finished and last month we were blessed to attend the church dedication and baptism of the first members.
This church plant was the special project of our EOF dorm students headed by Mrs. Phamor. The students spent many Sabbaths ministering to the people of Htee Kho Village located forty-five minutes from the Foundation. God has blessed their commitment by reaching the hearts of five villagers. On the dedication Sabbath, five people from the village and two students from our EOF dorm made a full commitment to obey God through baptism.
Here is a short video of the event.
