The eighth Luke 10 Exploration Trip in 2022 is departing tomorrow, December 8!
EFM has been planning ten Luke 10 Exploration Trips to ten different country/people group destinations in 2022 as EFM discerns where new mission fields will be launched as part of EFM’s Five-Year Goal! Eight of the first Luke 10 Trips will be completed in 2022, with two of the first trips being planned for early 2023. EFM gathered for a Luke 10 Think Tank on November 2 in Wichita and heard reports on what each team has seen for EFM’s CAN GO Criteria. They also took time to discern next steps, including further Luke 10 Exploration Trips to promising sites in 2023. See more information here.
The purpose of the Luke 10 Exploration trip to Thailand is to meet with the Friends leadership team in Thailand (registered as The Way foundation), which is lead by Charlie Kunakorn and Solomon Sangking. The team is will explore future work in Laos, Burma, Vietnam, and China. They will be based in Chiang Rai and will visit surrounding villages to meet with church planters and future missionaries from the Lahu tribe, who have a calling to go to those countries. They will also be exploring the possibility of a trip to Laos next year.
Team members include: Ben Kibbe (Damascus Friends Church, EFC-ER), Scott Calhoun (Canton First Friends Church, EFC-ER), Rusty Savage (EFC-ER Director of Multiplication), and Stan Leach (EFM Executive Director). Additional team members include: Solomon Sangking (The Way Foundation, Thailand) and Charlee Kunakorn (The Way Foundation, Thailand).
|Please pray for the team and for these requests:
The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to cast out more workers into his fields.
