Cynthia Friesen

Cynthia is serving with Multiply (formerly MB Mission) in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Cynthia's has a son named Maceo, a local Thai boy that she has adopted.

Chiang Mai is one of the fastest developing cultural centers in northern Thailand. While God is clearly at work in this part of Thailand, the harvest is still more plentiful than the workers in both the city centers and rural communities. Team Chiang Mai is focused on facilitating strategies for church planting, training new workers, resourcing Khmu and Thai pastors, and reaching out to youth in the juvenile detention center. One of Cynthia's main ministries is working with women from a juvenile detention center. She spends time at the center building relationships with the girls and then helps run "Freedom Textiles" a place where girls can come after they are released to learn how to work and take care of themselves in a loving environment.
