    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Having just completed my MSc in International Development, I am stepping aside from teaching in Ireland for a year to volunteer with UFM in Bangkok, Thailand. Throughout the year, I will be involved in:

    - Working with students and local believers in Bible study sessions

    - Teaching English as a foreign language

    - Development work

    During the year I will be working with students, pastors and the local church, learning from them as I use my skills in whatever way I can. I'm really looking forward to meeting local Thai and international workers, and am so aware of how much I have to learn from them. I am reasonably terrified (!!), but also excited and looking forward to stepping out and getting involved with what God is doing in Thailand.

    I am so grateful to my school for freeing me to volunteer and for UFM for accepting me to work with them. I am also thankful to my family, friends and all who support me for helping make this year possible, as quite simply it wouldn't be possible without this support. Without it I wouldn't be able to do this, so I can't thank you enough.

    In a nutshell, I am really looking forward to forming new friendships in Thailand, beginning to learn the language and understand the culture while serving God and others in whatever limited way I can. I ask most of all for your prayers and thoughts as I prepare to go and throughout the year. That is most important of all. Also, if you are able to give anything, I couldn't be more grateful - I wouldn't be able to do this otherwise.

    Thanks for your help in this - you are absolute legends.

    God bless,

    Dave

        Because I know you'll share so much peace, love, understanding and wisdom to those you'll meet. I hope this will be a fruitful experience. (And be sure to stop by HK if time allows!) Godspeed.
