Could You Spare Your Coffee Money, Today?






I’m going to Thailand, y’all!
God has given me the incredible opportunity to go to Chiang Rai, Thailand with Real Impact Mission (RIM) this summer for the whole month of July! The trip is going to cost me about $4000. I’m getting my shots, packing my scrubs, and charging my camera, but mainly I am praying earnestly for the hearts of the precious girls that I will be living with. 

I’m going to be living in a home for girls, ages 12 and up, who were rescued from prostitution and are now receiving an education and a some seriously needed TLC. The other missionaries and I will be helping them learn conversational English, but most importantly, showing them that they are loved by the Father, regardless of the neglect they have felt.
Ready to jump on board? Three ways:

Pray. 
...for my team, our 21 hr. flight, health, effectiveness, wisdom, and obedient hearts to join the Lord in His work.
...for the people we encounter, that the Father would prepare their hearts (translators too!)

Give.
......It’s as easy as going to http://www.RealImpact.com and clicking “Donate”
...In the “Purpose” Box, just type “Elena Henson”, and use any credit/debit card to give financial support!

Buy a Tee. I have some sweet tees that you can purchase. 
...Drop $20 in the mail to me, or donate $20 on RealImpact.com
....Let me know what size you want, and I’ll send you this shirt
Thanks for the encouragement and prayers. I can’t wait to see what the Lord will do!

In His Love,

Elena Henson

  1. Hi Elena,

    I randomly stumbled on your blog after googling paper mache lamps, i decided to click around and look for other craft ideas you might have posted but what i found was much better. I found a young woman who has a heart to serve God the father and serve the children he loves. Thank you for following the call to take Christ's loves to the ends of the earth. I will pray for your trip, thank you for posting this. It's always a blessing to hear of how God is using his children to impact the world for his glory! Many Blessings, Heather Marie-John 3:30
