Thailand Team

HU and Global Ministries are sending a group of seven students to Chiang Rai, Thailand, for three weeks during January.  While in Chiang Rai, the team will lead English camps and conversational English classes at an international school as well as interact with the local ministry team and people.  The team asks for prayer that the Lord will prepare their hearts and sharpen their skills to help further His kingdom in this context as well as provide useful English training for the people they encounter.  To help raise funds for this trip, the team is selling “Evangebears” for a suggested donation of $20.  The bears have the colors of the cross with English and Thai descriptions, and with a donation, you can keep one bear to remind you to pray for the team and send another bear to a child in Thailand.  The  bears will be available following both services and Sunday School today in the commons.  If you would like to donate and get a bear but cannot do so today, email  The team includes Shoshannah McKinney, Edwin Chow, Bronwen Fetters, Hannah Taing, Larissa Walker, Davis Kurtz, Aimee Wester, Mak Barrantes, Frank Yang, and Donna Hollopeter.
