Alex’s July 2016 Newsletter

August 30, 2016

As I strive to serve the local churches in Indochina,
two Scriptures are driving my work:

Some of my new students at Chiang Rai Bible Seminary

Ephesians 4:11-16

Through leadership training, believers can be equipped to perpetually equip one another.  I’ve teamed up with local leaders and done leader training.  But, I’m also brining in guest pastors and professors to help in these endeavors.  I’ve also just begun serving at Chiang Rai Bible Seminary, teaching Theology and English.  I’ll have more to report in my next newsletter.

Mae Sai Art Workshop

1 Thessalonians 4:12

The local church cannot be perpetually funded from outside sources. These sources are never permanent.  The local church should be dependent on no one.  In the future, I desire to provide micro-loans to help local believers to financially support themselves and their ministries.  Along with funding, I am connecting people with business advisors and skill trainers.

Khon Kaen Art Workshop

Enjoying Art and Exploring Possibilities

In late June and early July, Jessica and Damon Mohl, both art professors, came to Thailand.  With Damon’s help, Jessica led art workshops.   She taught people from three different countries some basic techniques of jewelry and metal working.

The kids taught me the techniques

Along with a few fun workshops for kids, we had four practical skills workshops for adults in Mae Sai and two in Khon Kaen.  We also explored future possibilities to make art that can be sold at local markets and festivals.

Along the way, while traveling, we saw some amazing national parks.  We were able to take photos and video footage of the beauty of Thailand.

Thank you for your prayers and financial partnership.
