John and Gillian Robinson set up the Place of Grace in 2011 in the middle of Bangkok’s materially poor communities.
They run children's and teenager's clubs throughout the week, providing a safe place for children to play, alongside learning about the God who loves them. They also run a foodbank where they pray for the people who come and tell them about God. John and Gillian have seen a number of teenagers become Christians and run a discipleship class for them.
John and Gillian have three children: Leah, Natalie and Joel.

We want to thank you for all your love and prayers for Non, the 14 year-old who came off a motorbike, who fought so very hard to live. Sadly he died the night before we reopened after the Christmas break.
The hospital had discharged him back to his slum house and it was truly awful to see how someone so seriously unwell had to live without windows, aircon etc, and we managed - with kind donations - to get him into a nursing facility, but he died of an infection.
We prayed with him such a lot, and told him not to be afraid because God was with him and he had previously accepted Jesus as his Saviour. We know he is now in a better place. It was very hard though as the last time we saw him Leah and Natalie had gone with us when they were here for Christmas. For the first time he was able to move his arm and was eating some food and had seemed to be progressing. It has been a hard road to travel, to see the injustice of his hugely inadequate medical care because he lived in poverty, compared to the over-treatment of every ailment for those who can pay. His sisters are Christians and attend our discipleship groups and have continued to find their comfort and peace in Jesus.
