Hope Village – Help Needed
Hope Village has a number of needs at this time – would you consider how you might help?
1. We are looking for a project manager for a tiny house build – this person would plan out the house build, contact our volunteers and layout a work plan for our work dates.
2. Construction help – we need people to pound some nails and paint walls.
3. Life Coaches – we need people to mentor our guests. We normally have 2 mentors per guest so you share this role with one other person
4. Network Friends- just be a friend to one of our guest…Lunch? Bible Study? Give a ride?
5. Donate Items for our Auction – we are involved in Sold4U auctions – if you are cleaning your garage let us know – we may be able to turn your throw away items into funds.

KhunYuam Christian Youth Hostel – Student Sponsorship
Landmark Christian Church has partnered with the KhunYuam Christian Youth Hostel, in KhunYuam, Thailand since 2003. The youth hostel was created so that children that live in the mountainous regions of Northwest Thailand, specifically the Mae Hong Song Province, could attend school. Often times the village a student lived in did not have a school.
There are currently 80 students at the youth hostel; they range in age from 6-18. They live at the hostelmand attend school in KhunYuam during the school year but live with their parents when school is not in session.
Landmark has a sponsorship program and from time to time a new student needs a sponsor. The sponsorship is $15.00 per month – that $15.00 is used as follows; $5.00 is used to purchase rice for meals, $2.50 is used to provide items for their dorms, $2.50 goes directly to the student for spending money, $2.00 goes into a travel fund, $2.00 goes into a college scholarship fund and the last $1.00 goes into a fund for a Christmas celebration.
During the day, the students attend the local school appropriate for their age. During the evening, after doing their homework, the children are taught how to be followers of Jesus. The learn the Bible, pray and sing. The older students lead worship and prayer for both the younger students and for the local churches each weekend.
Members of Landmark Christian Church have been blessed to be able to visit the youth hostel, its students and staff every three years. We are currently working on a having a couple of the graduating students visit us here at Landmark each spring.
Thailand Mission Trip
Every three years Landmark Christian Church has had the opportunity to travel to KhunYuam, Thailand on a mission trip. We have formed a bond with the faculty, staff and students that live at the KhunYuam Christian Youth Hostel. In the past 14 years we have made multiple trips to KhunYuam. During each trip we have accomplished some type of work project but our favorite times at the youth hostel have been spending time with the children and worshipping with their families.
