EFM’s relationship with The Way Foundation in Thailand is valuable in continuing the Great Commission work in Southeast Asia. The Way Foundation’s vision is to help establish a growing ministry that will continue to share the gospel, make disciples, plant churches and be connected to churches around the world, including those in America, for many generations to come.
We are excited to share a report about the latest developments for the Pastors and Evangelists Training program (PET) in Thailand!
|What We Will Do in 2023|
PET Bible Training course has three groups at three different locations resulting in a total of 60 students.
The first location is in the city of Chiang Rai (which is open to those who are interested) and has 14 students total.
The second place is Nong Kheow Village (it is a church that has invited us to provide training for people in the village who are interested) and has 29 students total.
The third place is Nong Pham village (it is also a church that has invited us to provide training for people in the village who are interested) and has 17 students total.
There are more students this year because of the prayers of all the brothers and sisters in Christ who are always praying for this project. The graduated students from last year invited people they know too. This year’s students are seeing the changed lives of students who graduated last year.

|What We Are Seeing|
During this training we have noticed that last year’s graduates have come and want to be involved in helping new students, some have even become mentors for new students. For example, during study time some of the graduates will help the new students by helping them find Bible verses, since some do not have much experience with using the Bible.
Some graduates from last year supported travel expenses and tuition fees for new students who do not have enough money to study. (On the right- The Nong Pham Village Group)
|Praises and Prayer Requests|
We thank God…
- That he has opened the door for us to have the opportunity to organize training for three more groups for 2023. Thank God that he gives people a heart that desires to know him.
- That the old students are still growing and are faithful in serving him. We are thankful that some still come and help new students in this training.
- For all of you who support this project by donating, giving advice, and praying for everyone involved in this ministry.
- For all students in their studies so that they will be able to come and study continuously and be able to understand the word of God.
- For the teachers to have good health so they can teach all year round.
Thanks for your prayer and your support.
