Meeting With Leaders in the Field

collier-berkshire-thai-pastorIn June my son Dallas and I had the privilege of joining some of the IGo board members and staff on a trip to Chiang Mai Thailand. Part of our trip purpose was to learn more about Asia and what God is doing there. As Val Yoder, James Stutzman and I met with various missionaries and Thai Pastors in Chiang Mai, we became aware of the spiritual needs in that part of the world.

We were encouraged as we thought about the possibilities for the Institute for Global Opportunities students to get involved in ministry along with their mission studies. We believe that bringing missionary training and ministry together can be a powerful method for developing Anabaptist missionaries who are well prepared for the unique challenges of the mission field.

The Thai Pastors we met with were encouraged to hear of the plans to bring 24 Anabaptist youth to Chiang Mai. They are looking forward to working together in partnership with us to reach the lost for Christ.
