Introducing a New Member of the Thailand Team!

Anna* is a teacher in Thailand who has joined the RMM Thailand team. We are so happy to have her as a part of the team in Bangkok and for the gifts and desire to serve Jesus that she brings. Anna is from the London, Ohio area and grew up attending London Christian Fellowship, which is now her sending church. She attended Cedarville University, studying Elementary Education and ESL (English as a Second Language) and had the opportunity to do her student teaching in Bangkok. Anna taught at the International Community School (ICS) and fell in love with the school and with Thailand. She had peace about returning and when a teaching position became available, she decided to return the following year.

Anna is now in her second year of teaching at ICS and has committed to an additional year. She teaches students in grades K-5 in a pull-out ESL classroom. She is very involved in many other areas of school life as well including: English testing for admissions, facilitating chapel, teaching an after school Bible program, and tutoring. Outside of school, Anna enjoys time with her friends, running (when it’s not unbearably hot!), studying Thai with a tutor, and going on adventures around Thailand with her friends. She is also working with a ministry called Lifesong whose mission is to rescue and disciple children found in migrant construction sites and slum communities. Anna participates in this ministry by teaching English classes to children of Cambodian construction workers and local Thai kids who don’t have the opportunity to learn from native English speakers. She has made occasional trips to Cambodia to support the Cambodian side of the ministry.

Anna is a covenant worker with RMM. This means she has a job that provides for her financial needs but will work with RMM’s team in its ministry and will support RMM vision in Thailand. Anna says that she always had the goal of using ESL in a missions setting and is excited to see this dream becoming a reality as she comes alongside the team. At RMM, we are grateful for God’s provision of a job and ministry in Thailand for Anna and that she can work together with our team to reach Thai and Cambodian people with the Good News of Jesus!

Anna’s prayer requests include:
• Wisdom in relationships and commitments
• Patience and a loving heart for my students, their families, and my co-workers
• Spiritual growth

Thank you for your prayers for Anna!
