100 Days in Thailand :: Day 22 - Meet Francisco Santiago III

We definitely had our own plans and work to do when we came to Thailand, but we also wanted to be open to any needs or opportunities to serve that God placed in our path while we were here. Well today, an awesome opportunity presented itself and we were so happy to be a part of it!

Meet my good friend Franscisco Santiago III (or Frank, as I call him :) Frank has been doing mission work for 4 or 5 years now, and he's been serving in Thailand for the past 2 years.

Frank is seriously one of the best guys I know. I can speak about him with some certainty, considering I led a team to South Africa with him! There are few things that will bring you closer to someone (you aren't dating) than leading a team of young people together. We had to work together, make decisions about the team's safety together, lead ministry together and handle finances together... it was pretty much like being married with 12 kids for a month! And other than my husband Rusty, there is no one I'd rather lead a team with again! He is going to make an amazing husband and father someday (and ladies, he's single! ;)

Frank is a true "man's man" - strong, passionate, adventurous, and a great leader. He is a man of high character.  He loves the Lord and is committed to seeing His Kingdom come in the nations! The only problem is - Frank has never had the financial support he needs to do the ministry he is called to. He's also never had any kind of support video - which is the best way to share his vision and passion with people. So, Rusty and I took an afternoon to shoot this video for him, in hopes that God will use it to get the support Frank needs to continue his ministry!

Please check it out below! There is a lot of interesting information about Thailand that will help you understand more about our heart for the country (as well as Frank's). Frank is actually in the US right now for a sabbatical (and to raise support to return to Thailand), so if you are interested in hearing more from him (or having him share with your church) please let me know! I'd be glad to put you in touch!

Frank - thanks for letting us make this video for you.  
It was a blessing to be a part of what you're doing in Thailand!
