About Abundant Life Foundation

Our Story

Abundant Life Foundation exists today because of a set of twin boys we found deep in the jungles of the Golden Triangle region of Thailand in August 1989. We were tipped off about a set of twins that were abandoned. We trekked to the remote mountain area where we found two little boys only ten days old and at the point of death. That day changed our lives forever.

We brought the babies down the mountain to get them the medical help they so desperately needed and to find a good home for them. Little did we know at that time that our home would become their home. Finding the boys opened our eyes to things taking place among children, the most vulnerable members of society. A vision was birthed to establish Abundant Life Children’s Home. In May of 1994 we opened our home with 22 children.

We have been growing every year, pursuing our vision of reaching thousands of children.

The children come from many backgrounds, all from severe poverty. Some are the children of drug addicts or prostitutes, some are orphans, and some are refugee children. Many are just from extremely poor families that live in remote areas where schooling is not available. We provide a home with an opportunity for proper education and a decent upbringing. Food, housing, medical, clothing and education are provided. We have a staff of experienced husband/wife teams that live with and care for the children.

Abundant Life Foundation is registered with the Government of Thailand to facilitate the ongoing vision to develop and expand Abundant Life Children’s Homes. Permanent homes to care for the children have been built on land purchased under Abundant Life Foundation.

At Abundant Life Children’s Home, children grow up in a safe and friendly environment. A quality education provides the children with the opportunity to develop the skills they will need to enter the job market and pursue a successful career.

Graduates from our program have done quite well. Many have started their own businesses, others have pursued nursing, social work, teaching, government jobs, etc.. Today over 30% of the staff at Abundant Life Foundation came to us as small children, grew up at our facilities, attained a college degree and now work with us to help other children to have the opportunity they had. We have become a big family.
