Making a Difference

"Welcome to our website. There is a lot of information, links, videos, etc. that will show you what we have been up to the last 32 years. It is amazing how the time flies and truly amazing what can be accomplished by simply staying consistent in what God calls you to do. We want to thank the wonderful people that have made this ministry possible; faithful partners and an awesome team here in Thailand. It has been quite a journey to this point and we all know the best is yet to come!"

Along with overseeing Abundant Life Children’s Homes which care for over 700 children, Charlie and Cathy Milbrodt pastor a local church, conduct a bible school and oversee an evangelism-church planting team which has planted and constructed over 180 churches across the nation of Thailand. In recent years Occupational Development through coffee farming has been developed to provide livelihood for rural villagers. Great tasting Mai Thai Coffee is the result; giving hope to rural farmers and providing support to care for orphans and at risk children in Thailand.

May 2019

We had our 2019 Annual Staff Retreat. Great time of encouragement, vision casting, food and fun. This is the one time of the year we get “almost all” of our staff together. We have 26 staff members in the refugee camp that cannot come out as well as Jason and Jasmin at the Tucson offices that were not able to attend this year.

Developing Leaders – Bible School Department … This is the core vision God gave us back in 1986. 30+ years down the road, it is beautiful to see how this vision has successfully produced leaders that are serving across this nation as well as other nations.

Evangelism-Church Planting … Each year we hear the reports from the various departments as well as the vision for the coming year. I love to hear the evangelism-church planting report of thousands coming into the Kingdom and churches being built.

Children’s Home Department You just can’t go wrong helping a child. This team is absolutely committed to the wellbeing of these children. By the grace of God, things run pretty smooth with the 700 children under our care. Sometimes it kind of shocks me that we don’t have more drama than we do! God is good! Graduates from our program are spread across this nation and around the world.

Maintenance Department … In times gone by we had to hire out certain things; not anymore…this department has grown in knowledge and skills and pretty much handles everything these days. 20+ ministry vehicles, 30+ ministry buildings, 70+ air conditioners, 25+ acres of grass and landscape…these guys have their work cut out!

Office Department … We have a dedicated team that does a phenomenal job of keeping everything running smoothly. Administration, accounting, legal matters, partner communications, etc. etc.. They do a great job!

Media Department … The media department is taking a leap forward this year to embrace the opportunities of advancing the Kingdom of God via technology as well as effectively showcasing our ministry.

Occupational Development Department … Coffee cultivation is now producing income for over 500 families under our program. You can support this project by ordering coffee at Coffee beans direct from Thailand, fresh roasted every week in Tucson, delivered to your home. Use code LWMI for a 10% discount at checkout.

A Salute To Our Team and Partners … Words can’t express our appreciation for the amazing team God has given to us. We have an awesome team here in Thailand and amazing partners like you…the results speak for themselves! Thank you for the privilege of representing you in foreign missions!

God Bless You Richly!
