AKHA Outreach Foundation
Akha Outreach Foundation was founded in 2001 with the goal of raising up Akha Christian leaders through their three branches of ministry: orphanage for at-risk children, four-year Bible college and church planting, and community development. 

Ministry Overview
Paul and Lori Vernon are serving in Thailand as missionaries to the Akha people of Southeast Asia. Since 2005, they have been working full time with the Akha Outreach Foundation to strengthen the Akha church and spread the gospel among the 2 million Akha people living in southeast Asia. Paul manages the media department, which creates gospel content media in the Akha language for evangelism and edification of Akha in Thailand and other countries.  Paul also teaches Bible and computer classes at the Akha Bible Seminary.  Paul and Lori are founding members in a small Akha church plant. Lori is the Sunday school teach and is developing a Sunday School curriculum in the Akha language. Their goal is to minister holistically to the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the Akha people, a traditionally animist culture.

Prayer Requests
• Doors to open for the gospel to be preached among the Akha in the areas where it has never been heard before.
• Unity, maturity and discipleship in the areas where the Akha Church has already been established.
• That the Vernon family would continually be pursuing a deeper relationship with their Father, for strength in their marriage and for wisdom in raising their children.
• Ministry details in recording productions of multiple Akha language gospel films and teaching materials
