This month we started focusing our attention on helping establish small groups at a nearby university. The first job of a leader is to build community, so that’s what we set out to do. We took a bunch of kids to a nearby waterfall to enjoy the day out. After exploring the area a little bit, we sat down to play a few games. Here’s a couple of our shots from the day out.
The next week, we were invited by Oil, one of the girls from Mae Fah Luang, to head up to Chiang Saen and help a local church encourage it’s members and evangelize the community. We piled 15 college students in two trucks (it was a bit of a squeeze) and took to the mountain roads leading to Chiang Saen. We found out that the area has a lot of migrant groups that have fled from surrounding countries and villages to find refuge in the safety of Northern Thailand. We spent the afternoon playing with some of the local kids, then held a Christmas presentation that night, and the group hit the village in the morning to talk with locals face to face about receiving Jesus. Here are a few of the shots from the weekend.
