After not being able to return to their original field of service in India, the Lord made a way for the Smiths to continue serving Him in Thailand.
They spent their first three years there working with a foundation that ministers to women who have come out of the sex industry as well as to their families. They were encouraged by the many testimonies of lives surrendered to Christ but also challenged by the difficulties these women face.
This past year, Aimee became the elementary music teacher at International Community School, where all six of their children attend. It has been the dream job she never knew to dream about! She shares about Christ through music to all her students, most of whom come from non-Christian homes.
