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 hope that this update from us finds you well in these extraordinary times.
In Bangkok we have been on a recommended - though not enforced - lockdown for a week. There is a night-time curfew and the threat of a 24-hour a day curfew. As flights abroad have nearly all ceased, it is a challenging time to be away from Leah and Natalie and our family. Both the girls are in lockdown in the US and UK in safe places, for which we are thankful. Here, we have both had what would seem to be the virus but testing is expensive and not widely available. Joel has remained healthy and it was likely we caught it from a staff member who was ill about six weeks ago. Thankfully, we sent her home and, except for staff helping her, she was isolated so there is no report of the kids catching it. It has been a long-lasting and unpleasant illness for me (Gillian) and John has come down with shingles again on the back of it. But praise God we are recovering.
