We are commemorating Jasmine Swope this week. She has served in Thailand as a missionary for several years and now she is transitioning from a field leader to one who will be coordinating missionary-trainees preparing for the field.
I have asked Jasmine to share 5 things she would share with an aspiring missionary and this is what she said:
I hope this finds you well!
Here in Ubon it is starting to get warm again and so we are looking forward to the hot season, if only because that's when we will get to meet our baby!
The last couple of months we have been taking care of Tee, an eight year old boy on the weekends as part of our work with the Light Center. Although at times it's been hard having this on our plate on top of the other responsibilities we have, it's really been a privilege for us to get to be there for him in his time of need. We are so glad God put him in our life for this time, please pray with us that we would be able to provide everything that he needs in order to move forward in his situation safely and healthily and that the people in charge of his case would have the wisdom and resources to care for him well and make good decisions on his behalf.
Zach & Hannah
Missionaries working in Ubon Thailand, these two are pioneering into new territory. Having dated and married in America, Zach and Hannah felt a strong call on their lives to share the love and acceptance of Christ to anyone and everyone, longing for all to know the value Christ sees in them. For Them, by God's grace, this happens to be Thailand.
