New International Ministries Project

We are pleased to introduce you to Tom and Christine Poovong, pictured here with their children, Phimchanok and Joseph.  Formerly of Trinity Mennonite Church in Calgary they are embarking on a term of ministry in Thailand with Mennonite Church Canada.  The ongoing ministry among the Isaan people in northeast Thailand seeks to invite people into Anabaptist faith communities and build bridges with other Mennonite / Anabaptist groups in Thailand.  Tom and Christine will provide pastoral care, Biblical teaching, preaching, income generation and entrepreneurial development with the goal of equipping new believers to take on leadership of the church.  The idea is for a new, Anabaptist congregation to form. A related ministry (perhaps in the same building) would be to start a bi-lingual (English/Thai-Isaan) preschool as both a business and a way to make relationships naturally. Tom & Christine have seen this model work in other locations as a way to also build sustainability over time.

Tom and Christine will be sending regular Prayer Letters which we will post on our web page to keep our readers informed.  They also have a Facebook page which you might want to visit.  

Please remember them in your prayers!
