This is an opportunity for pastors, leaders and influencers to join with World Outreach International and to take part in a two-week exploration of the modern world of missions.
Dates: September 30 – October 14, 2017
The trip will start in Bangkok and will take in legacy work begun more than 35 years ago by World Outreach missionaries. We’ll hear the stories of Thai pastors who have been discipled through these ministries and learn how they in turn make disciples.
We’ll also spend time with next gen missionaries. Young people who have given up their homes, careers and family to serve and play their part to bring the Gospel to Thailand. Their lives and stories will impact you as you hear their vision and heart for Thai people to know Christ.
Then we’ll be heading out into the region known as Isan. This large area of Thailand, bordered by the Mekong River, is home to some of the poorest provinces in Thailand and 18,000,000 people.
Our travels will take us very close to the Mekong River. From here, we’ll be able to consider what we have learnt, consider the opportunities, and pray into the work that remains. Our hosts will be a missionary family who are working with a local church to develop new projects and outreaches into their community and into the nearby closed country.
You’ll go home ready to continue the conversation, ready to play your part to take the Gospel to the ‘ends of the earth’. And when you’re ready, World Outreach would love to assist you to mobilise and develop from within your communities.
Efforts will be made to arrange for the most fruitful exposure possible. These efforts usually involve the local missionaries going out of their way to arrange for activities, events and ministry opportunities for the team. So be prepared for last minute changes in programs.
The trip will be co-ordinated through our mission partners in Bangkok and in rural areas of Thailand.
