Welcome

Welcome to Jesus4slumkids.org!

 

We are a group of American and Thai people who love God!  We are living in working in Bangkok, Thailand.  We are dedicated to sharing the love of Jesus to everyone we meet.  We heard the words of Jesus and hit the ground running!

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Matthew 28:18-20

This verse Motivates us not to just baptize but to teach.  In a land where all religions are accepted and everyone is open for prayer, there is a huge need to teach people what “we” believe.  Thai people are unique in the sense that they will let anyone pray for them from any religion, hoping for a blessing from your god.  They will accept a religion even go to that religions holy place regularly all while still being buddhist and not truly accepting the one and only God of creation, The God of the Bible.

In the On Nut 49 slum is full of people who have been forgotten, neglected, and thrown away.  There are the elderly, handicapped, drug addicts, drug dealers, prostitutes, and children of all of them.  They are living their lives broken and bankrupt struggling to get by until the day that they die.  They live in shacks, under bridges and in hallways with up to 15 people in one “house” struggling to get enough food for everyone.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

James 1:27

In the On Nut 49 slum is full of people who have been forgotten, neglected, and thrown away.  There are the elderly, handicapped, drug addicts, drug dealers, prostitutes, and children of all of them.  They are living their lives broken and bankrupt struggling to get by until the day that they die.  They live in shacks, under bridges and in hallways with up to 15 people in one “house” struggling to get enough food for everyone.

The kids at our church are all awesome, even though they don’t have much they’re happy with what they have, they’re blind to the poverty that they live in and ignorant of anything outside of their slum.  We hope to show them how to live a good and godly life, lacking good parents or good role models they are forced to look up to drug dealers and prostitutes.  Little boys doing the things that grown men do and little girls dressing like bar girls, and it breaks my heart to see these things.  These kids need love and are finding it in all the wrong places and we hope to show these kids how to find the love they seek in Jesus.
