TRAGEDIES! BUT OPPORTUNITIES TO HELP

(January 20, 2023) Ross and Donna, Mandate Ministries, share from Chiang Mai, northern Thailand…

No crops, no shelter, and seemingly no hope as the world looks on indifferently.

Thank you to all who contribute to our efforts to help. Thanks to our rapid-response team, we were able to get food products, rice, dry foods, and oil, as well as solar-charged batteries for their torches (flashlights) to these desperate people.
