For ten days, beginning form the 30th of September through October 10th, two of our lovely Youth Pastor’s Circle will be travelling to a city in northern Thailand called Chiang Rai. Gela and Arlene will be visiting the city, to help with the first youth camp (Breakthrough) of River of Life Foundation, an orphanage in Chiang Rai.
This will be the second time the two of them will visit Chiang Rai for an evangelical mission trip, their first being back in June 2010 where they were a part of a team of four which had also included Joel and Andy (Gela’s twin sister).
For about five years now, Jo, or “Tejo” as she is affectionately called by the youth leaders who are her disciples, has been working as Lighthouse Christian Community‘s Foreign Missions delegate to Thailand. Recently, she has invited the Team to return and help her organize the youth camp. This will mark the first ever youth camp that Jo has organized during her ministry in Thailand.
This of course does not come without costs, if you or anyone you know may be interested in extending financial assistance and prayers to our YPC missionaries, Jo, River of Life Foundation, or the youth camp, or simply want to know more about what we do, please leave a comment below and we will contact you.
“16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:16-20 (ESV)
We’re all called to share the Gospel, and although not everyone of us have the capacity to go out to the nations, there is always someway we can help.
Soli Deo Gloria!
