Support of Christine and Tom Poovong, with their children Phimchanok and Joseph, as they provide holistic pastoral leadership to the Maliwan Mennonite Church, an emerging Christian community in Khon Kaen, Thailand. The Poovongs work at income generation initiatives to engage their neighborhood with a long term goal of establishing a sustainable congregation.

The Poovongs have initiated a restaurant and explored a children's nursery program as business opportunities and as ways of interacting with neighborhood families and inviting people to the way of Jesus and into the community of the church.

The Poovongs also connect with leaders of other Thai Mennonite communities to encourage relationships and fellowship among emerging Mennonites communities across Thailand and Laos.
