AKHA MISSIONS TRIP 2012

MISSIONS

2024 Thailand Trip WebSlideshow.jpg

Our Thailand Mission 2024 is coming up fast. We have a team of 9 that will be our Sterling Foursquare church family extension connecting with our in-country ministry partners and Thailand missionaries. The ministry opportunities will include:

 

  • Connecting with our Sterling Foursquare missionaries in Thailand. This will include our homegrown missionaries Aaron and Alina Glassburn, as well the Vernon and the Moore families who are our long-time missionary friends and ministry partners in Thailand.

  • Providing teaching and training for Foursquare bible college students and youth from Myanmar who will travel into Thailand for the event.

  • Visiting our sister Akha church outside Doi Mae Salong; the village is in the northern mountains of Thailand (near the border of Myanmar). We will preach, provide prayer and ministry time, and facilitate NextGen ministries for their Sunday morning service.

  • We will be providing teaching, training, and support for the Foursquare Thailand national church conference. This three-day conference will allow us to connect with and encourage a large number of Foursquare pastors in Thailand.

  • Visiting Pastor Noah’s rural Akha Foursquare church. This has been a hub for the bluetooth audio Bible distribution to remote village ministries and is developing into a deeper ministry partnership. We will facilitate the ministry for their Sunday morning service and provide a youth/children outreach event to the community.
     

In these upcoming weeks please take time to pray for, and personally encourage, our team members. We look forward to celebrating all that God is going do through Sterling Foursquare and our partners in Thailand!

OUR MISSIONS FOCUS

It’s the orphan. the widow. the slave. the poor. the abused. the homeless. the loveless. the refugee. the forgotten. the least of these.

MISSIONS is about loving God and loving people.  Loving God and Loving People.  As a church, we not only want to reach out locally to the people around us—our families, colleagues, neighbors; but our heart is to see local people coming together to meet needs cross-culturally, internationally, and eternally.  We want to take what we know, what we have, and give life, restore hope, generate answers in the world around us.  God said go, go into all the world, be My hands and feet, feed the hungry, heal the sick, love the unloveable, be a voice for the voiceless, contest for justice. And so we go...

 

“Go into the world. Go everywhere...” - Mark 16:16 MSG

 

 

PRAY. GIVE. GO.

 

Everyone in the church body plays a significant role in missions.  There are 3 different ways you can be involved, each as important as the other.

 

PRAY: for the nations. Educate yourself and those around you about what’s happening in the world (watch the news, read the paper, search the web) and pray for those needs.  Pray for the hungry, the poor, the captive, the widow, the young person, the forgotten, and the refugee.  Pray and don’t stop praying. 

 

GIVE: donate to missionaries, trips, projects, disaster relief, and the GlobalMissions Fund to support what Foursquare is doing around the world.  You can donate online, to Foursquare missionaries around the world, at www.foursquaremissions.org/give/ or more specifically here at Sterling Foursquare for our missionaries and the teams from our church we send out each year.

 

GO: there are opportunities to go on short term mission trips, resources to connect you with teams, trips, locations, and the support and training to ready you for possibly the greatest journey of your life.

OUR MISSIONARIES

Our primary missions effort as a church is to the Akha people group in the northernmost hills of Thailand.  There we partner with our long term Foursquare missionaries to the Akha, Paul and Lori Vernon, as well as The Akha Outreach Foundation located in Chiang Rai, Thailand. We also launched our newest long term missionary, Aaron Glassburn in fall of 2017.

As a church we have taken yearly trips to Thailand since 2012 and continue to invest in these long lasting ministry partnerships.
