What’s the reason for us all piling in this Thai limo anyway? Well, October brings the mid-year break for the Thai school calendar each year, and this year, as in years past, our student ministries took off for the countryside for the mid-year Leadership Training conference. Each year, we take the students who are involved in the campus ministries in big city of Bangkok, and make our way for the provinces for a week of Bible, Worship, Training, & Evangelism.
While personally, I felt that the training itself was rather weak and formulated, and taught people to share their faith like a robot instead of a loving person – (sorry, I have to be honest though) – the week as a whole and the overall atmosphere was really solid. These camps are really great opportunities to get a bunch of young Christians together, to worship God, to learn, and to go share our faith with the surrounding community. This year, I was a part of 2 such camps – one for each of the regions that I’m heavily involved with each week throughout the year – Bangkok North & Bangkok South.
The pics here are from Bangkok North’s camp in Suratthani, Thailand. We went and served the local community in tangible ways by helping out at a local orphanage for the week. Then we went out and shared the reason for our heart to help – the Gospel of Christ. Not pictured here is another camp in Chai Nat, where I joined in with Bangkok South to do the same – learn, grow, worship, serve, and share. Good times, and we are thankful for God’s using these camps to grow a lot of young people in their relationships with Him.
