May Mission Month at CBC commences on 30th April and will conclude on 28th May. This year, we will be supporting 2 projects (total target $5000) and printed donation forms can be found in the foyer or downloaded here.
1. TNva411 Muana and Villy Pastoral Support (Non Tax-Deductible)
Muana invests significant time visiting rural faith communities and churches that are located three hours away. He does this in addition to being Team Leader and supporting our broader team
in-country. Muana visiting each church and faith community ensures they have access to pastoral support. He also encourages leaders as they lead their faith communities. He does this three weekends per month. The team has been partnering with the Church of Christ in Thailand ever since our work began in Thailand. Through this relationship, the church provides Muana and Villy and family with visas. As part of the agreement, Muana provides pastoral support to two churches that do not have a pastor.
In addition to preaching and looking after the spiritual lives of the members, he conducts religious ceremonies for them, including Holy communion, baptism and funerals. This is one aspect of his ministry. He combines these visits with visiting the Faith Communities in Baan Luang and Baan Sra to encourage them in their active ministry among their communities. These churches and Faith Communities are 3 hours drive away from where Muana, Villy and their family live.
2. MMM Where Most Needed (Tax-Deductible)
This fund provides tax deductible funds for Baptist Mission Australia to use in projects across the range of countries where they minister and which require specific financial support over and above what churches and individuals provide. (NB. A tax deductible receipt for donations to this fund will be send by Baptist Mission Australia before 30 June 2023)
