The Thai Disciple-Making Train – On Tour May 2013

The Thai Disciple Making Train is Rolling On… View this email in your browser

Hey Everyone,

We’re rolling along on a ride that started going full speed almost a month ago, and this week we’re finishing strong through our final 3 stops.

What is this train all about?
It’s about Jesus, and training people to do what He did in the area of intentional, loving, life-on-life, friendship disciple-making.

Who’s driving this train?
Jesus, of course.  And the leader of this movement, Dr. Billie Hanks of IEA and Operation Multiplication, is following Him, and leading others to do the same.  Dr. Hanks and his team have spent a month here traveling around the country teaching, training, and equipping Thai Christians to have a lifestyle of loving Jesus, and loving and building up others one-by-one and one-on-one through the power and pattern of Christ.  Dr. Hanks, (a longtime friend of Dr. Billy Graham), and his team have been walking the walk for a lifetime and are an awesome encouragement to me as I’ve spent the last month “tagging along” and trying to soak up as much as I can.  

What can YOU do?
Pray.  
– That our first 6 trainings that the IEA team and our local Thai team have already completed would bear long-lasting fruit.  That the nearly 2,000 peoplewho have come already would take what they learned and live it out following Jesus’ model and in dependence on Him.
– That this flame that has been lit would start a fire that would burn across Thailand as we look toward the overall national goal of 100,000 trained Disciple-Makers throughout the country by August 2014.
– That our last 3 trainings would be great by God’s mercy – in Chai Nat, (today and tomorrow), Phitsanulok, (15th & 16th), and Khon Kaen, (17th and 18th) – with over 500 more in attendance.
