Thailand STM Details
Chiang Mai, Thailand
May 10 - June 9, 2017
"I have the opportunity to go to Chiang Mai, Thailand this summer to serve at an orphanage, called Mango House, which houses and helps to educate children in an urban setting. I will be staying at Mango House and helping through teaching math and English, and doing anything that the ministry needs assistance with. To share the universal language of music, I will be bringing and donating two student flutes, music stands, music, and eight recorders. When contacting Pastor Danny, the head of Elijah Foundation, I made it clear that I wanted to be an instrument for God and I am open to serving in any way that they need me to."
