Short-Term Mission Trip to Thailand ~ Is God Calling You?




We are planning a Short-Term Mission trip to Northwestern Thailand in support of Austin and Sinte House (missionaries supported by Pender’s Faith Promise giving) from October 16-31.

During the trip, we’ll have the opportunity to provide evangelism, outreach, adult and children’s programs to those living in the Thai-Burma border region, as well as refugees in the Noh Poh Refugee Camp.

For more information, please contact Mark Reese by clicking on  this link or attend an information session this Sunday, July 7th after the 11 am service.
