Taste and see
Do you have a passion to see Jesus made known amongst the nations? Are you keen to explore where God might be calling you to serve in the future? In 2021 we hope to head out to Thailand, to meet with the multinational team working to get God’s word into the hands and hearts of communities around the region. This is a fantastic opportunity to see first-hand what it could look like for you to be involved in the vital work of Bible translation.
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Chiang Mai is a thriving urban centre in the north of Thailand, where ancient Buddhist temples sit side by side with towering skyscrapers and superhighways. It also lies at the heart of a region with over 300 language communities in need of God’s word. This will be our base from which we will be visiting Payap University, one of our major linguistics training partners and meeting with missionaries serving in a variety of roles, hearing how their lives have been caught up into God’s story for this region.
Golden Triangle, Northern border
We’ll then head north to the Golden Triangle where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet. We’ll visit our border training centre, where translation workers from across Southeast Asia are equipped and sent back out to bring minority language Scripture, literacy and Scripture engagement methods to their communities.
We’ll also be mixing in some exploring and sightseeing along the way! There’ll also be plenty of time to try Thai food and spend time processing what we see – and at least some time relaxing by the pool.
Dates: Summer 2021
Cost: £950 (approximately, including insurance)*
* Prices are based on shared (same gender) accommodation; there will be a surplus for individual rooms. You will have to book your own flights (though we will tell you which to book!), and then pay us about £450, which will cover all food, accommodation, travel and activities while we are together in Thailand. (The other £500 is for the flights between London and Chiang Mai. Please note that this figure may increase the nearer we approach the departure date.) This is because we are not a package holiday operator.
