Sometimes life in a remote village in Isaan can be boring. For Isaan people too. What a grace for missionaries!

Estimates for the yearly number of abortions in Thailand vary from 300,000 to 900,000. We want to get the message across that every single life is valuable! We opened a crisis pregnancy centre, Fountain Ministry, where women who are in crisis situations because of unplanned pregnancies can get counselling and practical help. When women decide to carry their pregnancy to term, a safe house is available around the period of the birth. In this way the love of Christ is made visible, and the women are invited to trust in Him.
The team from Fountain Ministry also visits secondary schools to teach special sessions in which they give relationship advice from a Christian perspective. As there is a lot of brokenness in Thai society in the area of sexuality, this provides a wonderful opportunity to teach God’s plan for an important area of life, while at the same time introducing many students for the first time to the Lord.
If you are a Thai woman with an unplanned pregnancy and you want help, please contact Fountain Ministry here.
