Dear Sponsor, Greetings from Thailand! My name is Sanya Ladaphongpattana. I have been the Country Director of Compassion Thailand for 14 years. I was born and grew up in a Christian family as a missionaries’ kid. My parents came from China and served the Lord here since 1962 to bring the Gospel to remote villages where there were no Christians.open_in_new Read full letter
