ur goal as an organization for 2010 is to visit the schools that Tim Lomas was able to establish relationships with in Thailand and Cambodia. We also hope to spread the organization’s aid to Laos. This trip is planned for the summer of 2010, and Tim will be going for the longest period of time (2 and a half months). Other Board members and assistants will be going with Tim for shorter periods of time. Please contact GCAP if you are interested in aiding any mission for a period of time. Space and scheduling is limited, so it may be your name is placed on our mailing and web list for possible 2011 missions. Thank you!
