Orthodoxy and Disability in Thailand


Pattaya Parish Church

I discovered a ministry to persons with disability in Thailand. It was not, however, initiated by the Orthodox Church.

The Christian Care Foundation: http://www.ccdthailand.org/index.php 

 Their ministry involves the providing of homes for people (mostly children) with disabilities,  as well as rehabilitation services.

The Orthodox Church has been in Thailand since 1999, the same year I discovered that the Orthodox Church is indeed “the pillar and ground of Truth.” There are parishes under Moscow and Constantinople. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthodoxy_in_Thailand

Twelve years, and a Church is growing on the foundation that has been laid. Converts are becoming part of the leadership, and a monastery has been established. Lord willing, very soon every aspect of life- including serving the needs of people with disabilities- will be being addressed by the Church. 

O Lord, protect, preserve, confirm, strenthen, extend and increase them, and keep them in peace, always a proof against the power of hell!
