Why are we going?

There are several reasons why we are going, but we will start with these two reasons first:

  1. Corinthians 12:12-27 

  1. After Paul explains that all of us are members of His Body in Christ, he says,”If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” There are brothers and sisters in Thailand that are facing persecution from all angles. We have an opportunity to help our brothers and sisters in so many ways because even food and shelter are a struggle.
  1. The second reason is even more specific. Through prayer, guidance, and more prayer we cannot deny our brother and sisters that are in need. God has opened many channels for us to be able to serve in Thailand and we know He is at work. We should desire to work alongside Him by His Grace.

How can I help?
