Summer Institute Opportunity in Russia and Ukraine

, , ,

I recently received the following from Daryl, our Europe and Asia Area Director:

“If I told you I could arrange for you to talk to and get to know several classes full of students, whom you could get to know, teach English, talk about Canada and your faith in Christ and do this for 3 weeks in another culture 1/2 way around the world, would you be interested? That is the opportunity we have in St. Petersburg, Russia and Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine this coming summer.

During July we hope to have 2 teams of teachers help Russians and Ukrainians improve their English and build bridges of friendship so they can walk over that bridge to tell these students about the love and forgiveness of God through Christ.”

If you are a teacher and are considering this opportunity, then get in touch with Lisa at Home Office by e-mailing, or by calling 604.513.2183 (or toll-free 1.877.888.9911).

A Short-Term Team In Tailand

, , , ,

Larry and Diane in Thailand recently hosted a team from Emmanuel EFC in Steinbach, Manitoba. Here is a brief account they provided about the trip:

A team of 13 young adults came to Thailand and they were a great blessing. One of their areas of ministry was to the local ZOE Children’s Home (more info on ZOE International available here), as well as to the Khmu people in Nan province. The Khmu were greatly impressed with how dedicated they were in the construction and painting projects they took on. When was completed the Khmu leader, Prayat, said this was the most beautiful church he has ever seen!

Many people have come to see the church since then. The team also had a chance to do a live performance beside the main street, where they set up lights and a sound system. Both young and old came to watch this performance of songs, skits and a short message. Pray many Khmu would come to the Lord and fill up the church with worship and praise to our Lord. Pray for Prayat as he would like to have a ministry to neglected and abused children. Pray that this can be accomplished wisely and with leading from the Holy Spirit. This ministry will also need more workers.

The Khmu have never had a team come to their area before. When it came time to say goodbye, several couldn’t hold back their tears. If you would like to be involved in a team outreach effort with that kind of connection and impact, send an e-mail to us at Short-term teams are a great way to get involved in ministry firsthand, and we can help connect you to one.
