Experience Local Technologies Making a Difference in Southeast Asia
The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. Matthew 6:22
Interested in local water solutions, coconut processing, aquaponics, or agriculture?
This spring, there is an opportunity for one or two participants to experience first-hand how these local technologies are making a difference in the lives of those in poverty in SE Asia. We will visit a local institute to see the technologies they are developing. We will then travel to our mission field to observe how these technologies are being used and explore how more might be put into place to serve our brothers and sisters in Christ.
In response to the grace of Jesus, and in accordance with the commission of the body of Christ, this Kingdom Workers Service Immersion opportunity will foster cultural exchange and understanding. Participants will join in a series of guided learning and service opportunities facilitated by Kingdom Workers SE Asia staff, local leaders, and local volunteers.
