Pray for more native English speakers to volunteer as teachers in Thailand. Helping Thai people learn English is a major government initiative across the country and children who can speak English well have many more future and employment prospects than those who can't. Pray that this could also be a way for Thai people to be introduced to Jesus Christ.

Pray for Good Kids Preschool (read and watch a video about them here) as they try to give less wealthy families access to excellent bilingual education and the love of God.

Pray for the Radical Grace team as they seek God's guidance about how to best use Shalom House (read more here) to bless those they are journeying with, the community and the local church.

Pray that the youth and those who are already coming to Shalom House would find community and a place to grow in relationship with others and God.

Pray that Shalom House would be sustainable in its programs as well as funding (the initial funding provided by SIM International has enabled this one-year pilot , but to continue Shalom House beyond 2017 Radical Grace will need to raise the required finances).
