2nd Annual Imagine Thailand Discovery Tour coming January, 2012

We believe that the best way to see, feel and experience Thailand is to visit it for yourself. That's why we're excited to launch our second Imagine Thailand Discovery Tour, coming in January 2012.

Have you ever wanted to have first hand experience of what God is doing in Thailand, but didn’t know how best to do that?  Have you desired to see for yourself the impact of partnership in a local Thai community?  Or have you been curious to see Thailand, but want to be more than just a tourist?  Then we’d like to invite you to on the tour.

The Imagine Thailand Discovery offers the opportunity to see all that Thailand has to offer from a unique, purpose-filled perspective. Join us on a fully-escorted, 12-day tour of Bangkok, the Thai-Burma border and the area of Southern Thailand still recovering from the 2005 Asian Tsunami. Click here for more details.

Bangkok Security Update

You may have seen stories of protests and violence in Bangkok the news recently; we wanted to update you on what this means for us at Imagine Thailand.

Last Thursday night, a confrontation between two groups ended with five bombs that left one people dead and 88 injured. While the bombings were quite close to us, the confrontations are very localized and there is no immediate threat to Imagine Thailand or PAOC workers in Bangkok. However, we do expect the situation here to be unstable for the foreseeable future.

Here are some things you should know:
1. The violence is very targeted. We are following the situation closely and avoiding targeted areas. 
2. Our work and staff in Mae Sot and the South are not affected.
3. We are communicating regularly with staff and teams.
4. If the situation deteriorates, we have plans in place to ensure everyone's safety.

We appreciate your prayers for the safety or our family and staff, and for peace and reconciliation in Thailand.

Sincerely,

Peter and Cavelle Dove
Executive Directors, Imagine Thailand

Donate to Haiti Earthquake Relief

ภาษาไทย

Your generous support is needed to help meet the staggering needs for basic necessities and then for recovery and reconstruction activities. Donations to ERDO by February 12, 2010 for Haiti Earthquake victims will qualify for the matching dollars by the Canadian government.

A magnitude – 7.0 earthquake devastated the capital city of Haiti, Port-au-Prince on Tuesday, January 12, 2010. This is the strongest earthquake to hit the nation of Haiti in more than 200 years and has crushed thousands of structures, from schools and homes to the National Palace and the U.N. peacekeeping headquarters. The death toll is currently estimated at 200,000 with 250,000 injured and 1.5 million left homeless.

Imagine Thailand's partner organizations, the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC) and Emergency Relief and Development Overseas (ERDO) are responding to the crisis and need your support. We are receiving funds on their behalf in Thailand.

We are grateful for the safety of PAOC missionaries Michel and Louise Charbonneau as well as other Canadian personnel Tami Goslow and Bob Thornley. We are grieved to learn of the death of Pastor Gandy St-Hilarie who worked closely with Charbonneau’s. Pastor St-Hilarie was in charge of the weekly feeding program and was also involved in the ChildCare Plus sponsorship program. We are also saddened to learn of the confirmed death of one of our Child Care Plus sponsored children. It will be several weeks before we can confirm the whereabouts of all our sponsored children, as many families have fled Port au Prince and the rescue and recovery efforts are on-going.

A tent city on the Haiti-Dominican border.ERDO is responding as the humanitarian agency of the PAOC with practical help for the victims. On January 20th an Emergency Medical Response team arrived together with a truckload of food, water, gas and medical supplies. They will be working with the Charbooneaus to treat the many wounded who are in the ‘tent city’ just outside the Ministry Centre. ERDO is now planning for major food relief response through the Canadian Food Grains Bank and other relief aid in partnership with Canadian Churches in Action. We are focusing on the many thousands living in the tent cities that straddle the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

There is still a critical need for funding to help ERDO respond to basic human needs and help with recovery and reconstruction in the months to come. Please send your donation to ERDO’s Haiti Earthquake Response.
