first phase of
this trip involved visiting our Crossroads & Urban Discipleship Training
School outreach team in
Bangkok. They are working
with - and staying at - the Siam Bangkok Church (affiliated with WEC International).
This team includes a Malaysian Chinese guy
(student team leader), several NZ
Maori, a gal from
the UK, another from Germany and an American
focus for this team’s outreach is to university students. The church is
just a few blocks from the university – which has 650,000 registered
(throughout the nation).
We went on campus and prayed that God would lead us to
the right ones to
make conversation. This often led to sharing a testimony of
how we came to know God. We also invited them to some of the church
which included English language classes,
I also spent
several hours on two afternoons training about
a half a dozen of the young
leaders of the church. They were like sponges, soaking up the teaching
stories, full of questions and hungry for more.
I also enjoyed fellowship
with the senior pastor of the Siam
Bangkok Church who
is involved in networking with many other church
leaders and several projects that are reaching thousands of young
the Gospel throughout the nation of Thailand and beyond.
