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.
