Through The Eyes May & June 2016

Camp One. Camp Two. Vacation.

English Engineering Camp

We have been very busy since school has ended this year! As I said in my last newsletter, we would be teaching english in two different camps this summer. The first, English Engineering Camp. The second, Summer Beach Camp. These camps are similar and drastically different at the same time.

English Engineering Camp (EEC) is organized by Chiang Mai University. This was the 5th year that the Engineering department at CMU invited us to teach. God has given us a great opportunity. The main focus is teaching conversational english. Most thai students begin learning how to read and write english at the age of 10, but speaking english is over looked. Thai student culture is full of fun, so we formally teach and play games that help them learn. I believe the students learned more conversational english, had fun, and we were able to make new friends.

Summer Beach Camp

At SBC (Summer Beach Camp) we also teach english, but we are more focused on sharing the gospel. So, in our english classes we read through the Jesus story book bible for comprehension. This book has pictures and summarizes bible stories -- from Creation to Jesus coming back. In Thailand, this book is an amazing tool because students have never heard the gospel. It helps them "interact" with the stories. Outside of class we take day trips, volunteer, and just hangout to build relationships.

Tomorrow we will leave for the beach for 3 days. We will be playing games and having more conversations about Jesus while there. Please pray that God would continue to give us favor with the Students and bring more of them to know Jesus!

Looking Ahead
  • Beach trip Update coming soon!
  • Going on Vacation to rest for the coming semester.
  • New school year beginning in August

Prayer Requests:

  1. Two girls prayed to receive Christ! (picture below) Pray for them as they begin to understand more and more of what it means to follow Jesus.
  2. Pray that these guys would continue to be interested in the Gospel and that God would ultimately change their hearts. (Aun, Top, Earth, First, Nat)
  3. Good rest in God on our team vacation to Phuket.
  4. God would fill our hearts with joy and give us much energy as the new school year starts.
  5. God would continue to give us opportunities to share the Gospel and that thai students would follow Jesus.
