Ricky & Karen Sanchez

Our ministry in Thailand and SE Asia is diverse and multi faceted, and all the things we put our hands to are with the goal of evangelizing and church planting in the region.  The Abundant Life Home Orphanage was opened by Karen in 2006 for HIV+ children who are orphaned because of the sex trade in Thailand.  We also run a ministry where we take in women to our homes, who are coming out of the sex industry and help them keep their children, called 'Project Standing Strong.'  We share the gospel with the women, disciple and train them and raise them up to provide on their own for their children so they can be self sustaining and serve in our churches.  

Prayer Requests

  • For the children in our orphanage, the Abundant Life Home, to grow deep in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • Please pray for our newest church plant, Zion MB on Monkey Mountain, and our Thai church planters on our team, Gideon and Fon.  Pray for the gospel to take root in the hearts of the villagers and that the church will grow.
  • Please pray for the new Bible school/mission training center we plan to start in Thailand, for the details and leaders to come together in the next year.
  • Please pray for our ministry and church plants in Cambodia, for God to grow the churches and raise up leaders there as we partner together.
