On January 2, 2024, The Ivy Table embarked on our first organized missions trip to the country of Thailand with a group of 10 people. The first half of the trip was spent in Mae Sot (northern Thailand) working with refugee students, most who have been orphaned or separated from their parents as a result of the war in Myanmar (Burma). The second half of the trip was spent in Pattaya (central Thailand) working with children and families who live in the poorest areas of the slums.
While there, we hosted free food distributions, community dinners, and engaging in building projects. In a country that is 95% Buddhist and less than 2% Christian, we held an overnight VBS style english retreat for local students and gave the morning message at a church in the slums.
We greatly appreciate the support and prayers we received for this trip. It was an incredible experience, which uncovered even greater needs and presented new opportunities for us to help as we move forward We are already planning our next trip back later this year.
