Making disciples among the unreached

Shan Mountain Village

In: Southeast Asia, Thailand
ID: 21170

In a remote jungle, more than 1,000 men have made the desperate, brave decision to seek help for the drug addiction that has shattered their lives. Though there is no more room in the rehabilitation camp, several new people arrive every day. The pastor who runs the camp, himself a former addict, does not have the heart to send them away. They roll out mats and sleep shivering in the cold mountain air. You can protect them from the elements and jungle insects by providing sleeping bags, which cost just $13.75 per person. (800 needed/$11,000 total) 

We have asked God for five years now to open a door among Shan men, that they might take the gospel to the heartland of this unreached, Buddhist people group. Here is his answer! 

In this camp we have complete freedom to share the gospel by telling these men the stories of the Bible and of the Christ who can set them free. We also can demonstrate the love of Christ by teaching them sustainable agricultural practices so they can become self-reliant by producing their own food. 

Over the course of a five-year program, we trust that Christ can replace the deep shame these men feel with the honor of a dignified life in body, soul and spirit. But the center currently resembles a rough refugee camp. You can help turn this camp into a sustainable, holistic rehabilitation program by providing the funds for: 

• Galvanized roofing and cement walls and flooring for a dorm to safely house the few women at the camp. $2,577 

• Hydro-electric power. Currently there is no electric power source and the men live in the dark. $1614 

• Restroom facilities. $936 

• Worship center and dining hall — roofing only, as all wood structures  are sourced from the surrounding jungle and constructed by the residents. $2061 

Shan Mountain Village agriculture training

• Seedlings and other materials used to teach sustainable agricultural practices. $1,000 

• Goat husbandry. Nubian goats, $171 (20 needed); two goat houses, $1000

• Bibles and Christian literature. $5 per person (800 needed) 

These and other needs total $34,158. That's about $43 per current resident, to provide hope, freedom and the life-changing message of Christ.
