is a Christian children's home located in northern Thailand in the San Sai, Chiang Mai area that opened in October, 2009 to specifically serve children in need. From various backgrounds (e.g., orphaned, abandoned, impoverished, etc.) and ethnicities (i.e., Karen or Lahu hill-tribes), the children at the Lighthouse
stay onsite and attend school nearby.
itself is not a school - it is a children's home for children in need that do not have a home or cannot safely stay at their own home. the Lighthouse
provides spiritual development, the love of Jesus, encouragement and basic provisions of lodging, meals, transportation to/from the local government school, toiletries, and extra-curricular development such as learning about the Gospel, English, music/guitar, and personal hygiene.
Currently, there are 13 children, aged 7 - 19 years old, and 4.5 staff (Jo-jo is counted as "half" since he will assist only part-time on the weekends and on school breaks).
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
II Corinthians 4:6
