For Ninja and Chin-jung, two brothers whose parents were sentenced to life in prison, CFPM (Child Family Prison Ministry) has made all the difference.
How CFPM Changed Chin-Jung’s Life
Chin-jung was three years old when he first got to CFPM, and he could not speak or understand Thai. Now CFPM staff say he is like a new kid. He loves to play with toys and draw. He knows God’s Word. He loves the story of Samson. Chin-jung wrote,
I like Samson because he was a very strong man, who had a lot of strength that he got as a very special gift from God. I hope I can be like Samson. In the future I want to be a soldier because the soldier is a protector and I want to protect the people in my country.
Right now I am 10 years old. I am in grade 4. I like to play soccer. My favorite color is blue. My favorite food is a buffet. I want to be a soccer player. My favorite Bible Story is when God created the world. I like this story because the way that God created everything is very amazing. My favorite Bible verse is “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13). This Bible verse is important to me because murder is bad and sin.
Since I’ve come to CFPM, I have a chance to be able to have a good education, and I got to learn and know about God. I got to travel to many places. I love the beach and it is my favorite place to go in summer. And I got to learn special languages like English.
You Can See it on Ninja’s Face
Ninja is Chin-jung’s older brother. You can see on his face the positive influence CFPM has had in his life. He now has the opportunity to study in school, which he loves. Math is his favorite. He is a good helper and likes to help everyone. Ninja wrote,
I am 11 years old. I am in grade 5. I like to play soccer. My favorite color is red. My favorite food is Lap (ground pork salad). My favorite Bible Story is the one when King Solomon asks for wisdom. I like this story because I want the wisdom like King Solomon. My favorite Bible verse is, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7). This Bible verse is important to me because God gave me all the wisdom and knowledge.
Since coming to CFPM, I have learned how to control my emotions, and about God and the Bible. I Learned how important it is for me to be obedient. I have learned how to play guitar and soccer. I got a chance to travel to the beach. I got to see it in real life and not from my imagination. I learned how to save money too. I have learned that God loves me and He has a great plan for my life, like He had when he sent me to CFPM.
The leaders of CFPM said that they praise the Lord for how He has given Ninja a new life and a new hope. Now Ninja loves to eat fried rice and play the game “Apple, Strawberry” which is a vocabulary game similar to tag. He also likes to draw pictures. He is very clever boy he does very well with school. He is a good helper and he likes to help everyone.
Please pray for CFPM, that God would continue to bless their ministry to children like Chin-jung and Ninja in Thailand.
