  1. Thom was one of the most unique people we had in YWAM India. He was incredibly gifted in the restaurant industry and was a gentle and kind hearted person. Thom loved people in his own unique way. He developed relationships amongst people that many of us never could through his expertise in the food industry. We miss you Thom and so thankful we could be your friend and co-worker for the years we had together.
