FLD ministers to children three days a week at two orchard workers' communities.  The workers who take care of the orange trees live at the orange groves in one cement block room per family.  Our team goes to minister to the children of these workers.  All of the people at both locations are from Burma; some have lived in Thailand a few months, others up to four years.  They do not have Thai citizenship and therefore lack rights and opportunities.  

Kids' Clubs include teaching both physical and spiritual topics, fun and games. The children learn about health, disease prevention, hygiene, and about God.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays Jom goes to an orchard with Palaung kids. Their language is quite different from Thai but they go to Thai school, so one part of our program is helping the children with their schoolwork.  

Saturday Kids' Club is at a second orange grove with about 25 Shan children each week. 

At both locations, the kids receive practical help, hear the Gospel and learn about Jesus, the Savior who loves them.

We are in a process of site selection to start programs in a third orchard community.
