The 16th academic year of GIS began with multiple families and single adults, who moved their lives to Thailand in suitcases. The 20 new faculty and staff arrived from three countries, eager to serve!
A year ago, Special Education teacher Chyrl Mullins considered training in overseas literacy work, until she heard about a translator, who left a field project, to meet his child’s education needs. At the same time, a person suggested that Chyrl’s background might be God’s preparation to help missionaries. Now at Grace, she says, “I’m excited to make a difference in children’s lives and help families stay on the field. People are encouraging and say ‘I’m the right person’ for this job.”
Christopher Webb’s wife found GIS online. “God showed me His direction to teach secondary Religious Studies, after 14 years in ministry, by canceling our summer holiday and guiding us into global missions. He is faithful; He closed doors, opened GIS, and enabled us to raise support in two months! Our children will have a great education and know the Lord better. I want to help teens’ journey with God, living in faith. We trust Him now for our daily bread. We’d only been at our church six months, but they supported and sent us!”
