Jared and Stacy Haechton and their five children, Wesley, Micah, Enoch, Mercy, and Hope live and minister in the District of Kham Muang, a rural district in the Province of Kalasin, Thailand. They are from Blaine Christian Fellowship, Blaine, WA and are church planting with OMF International as part of the Isaan Joint Venture in the Isaan Region of Thailand. The Isaan Joint Venture desires to see God glorified through biblical churches within every district of the Isaan Region. Jared and Stacy are overjoyed at the privilege God has given them to be involved in his purpose of drawing the unreached to himself through a relationship with Jesus Christ! They are excited and humbled to be a part of a movement to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to meet the vast spiritual and physical needs of the people of Thailand.

Shanna Dought is the Northern Colorado Ministry Leader for IAFR established in 2009 in response to the need for an international Christian nonprofit agency devoted to the mission of helping people survive and recover from forced displacement. They do this in partnership with local churches, refugees churches and the church-at-large.
At the time of their founding, they did not know that the world was on the brink of an unprecedented refugee crisis that would play a defining role in the 21st Century.
They were established for such a time as this. Together with the church, thye are a force for hope, healing and recovery in the world.
2021 has been a year of many traditions for the Otten family. They packed up and sold their house and moved to Alaska. Then spent some time in Colorado and North Carolina. Their next adventure is in Ghana where they moved in January. They will be using their skills there in whatever ways they can in relationships as they will live in a small community. Their focus will be on language and cultural learning. They are excited to join a team there to share the good news that God loves them and sent His Son, Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose again so we can have eternal life.
