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.

One business and outreach project of the church begun in 2015 is Menno Nursery. Through Menno Nursery, Tom and Christine are interacting with neighborhood families and children, mentoring community leaders, and inviting people to the way of Jesus and into the community of the church. By offering child care, parents are freed to explore other income generating opportunities.

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