Missions of Vision Christian Family

Our main mission focus is the Dollar a Day Program. Vision Christian Family is in partnership with the House of Grace Foundation, which presents us with an opportunity to help needy children in Thailand.
 
 The House of Grace Children’s Home, situated in the north of Thailand, was established several years ago by Bom, a Thai pastor. Since its inception, VCF has had a close association with the home through the Barton family who lived in Thailand for many years, and know Bom and his family well.
 

 Our Dollar a Day Program began in November 2003, and has been sending regular payments to support the home since then. In the home, up to 15 children aged from 4 to 15 live a very basic lifestyle. The money we give helps to provide food, clothing, education, loving care and a safe environment for them.

When the program began, we asked those who would like to be involved to sponsor a child at the rate of $30 per month (hence the name of the program). In that time, the price of rice has doubled, the Australian dollar has fluctuated and petrol prices have impacted the cost of living in many ways. Therefore, recently, we have asked sponsors to increase their sponsorship to $40 per month. We also ask our sponsors to pray regularly for the children.

Some of our church family have taken the opportunity participate in the annual mission trip to visit the children and help with work on their house.

We have a commitment to bear all administration and advertising costs for the Dollar a Day program, and will ensure that every dollar given is sent to Thailand for the support of the Grace Children’s Home.
