Pray for Kim Brown soon to be retiring from IM after 36 years of serving Christ in Thailand.
Kim works with a team of indigenous leaders to manage a multi-faceted response to the needs of tribal peoples: HIV/AIDS prevention education, care for those who are HIV+ (including the House of Love for women and children affected by AIDS), ministry to people with disabilities, youth ministry and education and economic development work among migrants in locations spanning from traditional villages to urban slums. Kim carries out her ministry in relationship with the Thailand Karen Baptist Convention. She is retiring from her missionary service with IM the end of this month – but not from her life of service for Christ.
Kim writes - Preparing for my retirement has led to reflecting on the last 36 years. One activity I had to do at a transition workshop was to write a timeline of my years in Thailand. This exercise has been a wonderful time to remember and to give thanks for what God has done. I am ever mindful that your partnership both in prayer and finances made every milestone possible, and so trust that this letter can be a time of rejoicing for you as well. Thank you for being involved in my life and the lives of the ethnic minorities and God’s work here!
