Engage Camp Completed

Posted: October 20, 2011 in Uncategorized

Last week, our team completed our first photography camp—Engage—in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Eighteen students attended, with ages ranging from high school to middle-aged adults. Most of them, 13 to be exact, were not believers in Jesus Christ. Although this excited our team, truthfully, it also made us nervous. The first time we prayed together for this camp, we asked for God’s grace to help us not offend the unbelievers when we sang worship songs, prayed, or openly shared Jesus at the end of the week.

Praise God! The Thai unbelievers in attendance had hearts open wide. Even though they did not know how to sing in worship, they still followed along. At the end of the camp, a few students approached us, asking for a Bible to read. Wow, God’s grace was certainly sufficient for us!

Following the Engage graduation and photo exhibition, many students still wanted to remain in contact with our team. I know God opened this specific door for me—a Thai Christian—to reach out to them. My vision is to connect with high school and college students, and this camp provided an amazing opportunity for me to walk into my calling in an even greater measure. My heart rejoices when I look to the future and imagine what God can do next! ~JOY RADOMTHONG~

From cell phone to DSLR!!!!!

As I look around, I notice many people taking photographs, probably because they want to hold onto memories. Many people in Thailand even use their cell phones to hold their memories and retell their stories. What a great idea! As a result, our team has planned to do a photography camp next month here in Chiang Rai to train how to tell a moving story through pictures. But we are most excited about the chance to share the love of God with people and encourage them to see the world through a different perspective.

 

When my journey begin!!!!

Posted: May 26, 2011 in Uncategorized


Last April I’m just graduated in a bible school in Thailand. Many people in my ages thought that when they finish college. Is a time for them to have a freedom in their life. And get a good job, good life. Especially in Thai culture, when you finish the college. You need to get a job and help your family and get a good life ( for me i think is a pressure for people) Some of my friend said to me That they are done with a journey. They need to do something for themselves. And don’t care what others thinking.
For me as a Thai. Sometime is very hard to get out of the society ( Culture) that had set for long time for us to follow. My family have high expectation for my life and my future. They want to see me walk in their way and have a good life. And its hard for me to walk in Christian way but the rest if the family still believed in others gods.
But deep inside of my heart I know that God had calling me for his purpose. And I know that my journey is not finnish yet. But it keep going. Because God had drawing my picture each day.
I don’t need what my friends want to have. I don’t want to have a high education but in the end my life is meaningless. But I just want to follow God steps. I have a passion for lost people. I want to help them to see Christ. I want to do a greater things for God kingdom. I want to reach and teach people to know about Jesus.
I am so excited for my journey with the Lord. And where is he gonna take me.

He [the benevolent person] scatters abroad; He gives to the poor; His deeds of justice and goodness and kindness and benevolence will go on and endure forever!
—2 Corinthians 9:9

The month of July and August I will help with a mission team call 7weeks In Asia. We will go some of the country such as Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia I think. ^_^ To help reach , teach ,
mobilize people.
Thank you for your pray and all your support.
JOY

It’s been so great to be back home and doing what your my heart willing to do.
Sorry that I did not have a chance to update about myself in a past few month.

As you know in the beginning of the year that I had went back to the bible school to finish diploma degree. I’ve been there for 4 month. And right now I’m graduated!!!!!!!!! During the time that I studied there it was so amazing. I learned a lot and got to try a new things. I got to met with new friends who came from different nations. The bible school( VBCI) had made me see the world in different way. VBCI had stir up my passion for the lost and always encouraged me to do a great things. It’s help identify Who I am. Thank you so much VBCI Leaders.

Right now I am back in Chiangrai where I belong. I started to work with the Emerge Media Light Asia again. And I love to be here with all my church and my family. I still have the university that I need to continue on. I’m studying about the Business management. At first I have no idea why God took me to this areas. But now I know, because it so much need in the ministry. Everything that God had put into our life is not waste our time at all. Now I just want to continue follow God plan in my daily life and walk faithfully in His calling. Because I know that he turn me away from the evil things.

Let him turn away from wickedness and shun it, and let him do right. Let him search for peace (harmony; undisturbedness from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts) and seek it eagerly. [Do not merely desire peaceful relations with God, with your fellowmen, and with yourself, but pursue, go after them!]
—1 Peter 3:11

I love and miss you all
God bless

Mission Trip with VBCI!!!!!!!

Posted: March 10, 2011 in Uncategorized

Last week VBCI student we went to the Northern of Thailand( Chiangrai). This trip was an amazing trip for us as a students. This year will be a last year for me in VBCI. In the trip we spend a lot of time bonding together. We work at day time and at night is our relax time. My friends and I we love to looked at the stars. We see how wonderful our God is. We spend this time to encourage each other and talked about our future. I was so amazed how God lead each of everyone to come get to know each other. The students all come from different place in the world. The thing that I see in everyone that we have one heart that willing to follow Jesus and fulfill His destiny.

We also study about Hebrew with Dr.Al Purvis.. Is very cool!!!!!! Because we did not study just in the class room. But we went to study at the temple and water fall. Is so relaxing.

I’m so blessed by God and people around me. people who love and give me the encouragement. Like in the bible says in Ephesians 4:15-16
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

You are cherish…….

Yesterday VBCI Student and Youth Extreme and the canadian team D2W band. We had and oppatunity to have an outreach at the detention centre. We share the Gospel and show love to these young people. This place had very broke my heart. In that place have young people around 250 people live together in the small area. Who have been drug and criminal but their age can’t go stay in the prison yet. When I look at their face, they’re very young and I see a good things in their life. But the world had change them.
This place reminding me to focus on God plan. As we are a Christian we need to do something for His children. We can’t just let these young people try to do the bad things and get lost.
For me the thing that I see yesterday is very change my perspective. I think before I will wait until I am ready. Then I will share the Gospel and I will evangalism to young people.
I very have a burden for young people in my country. How many young people out there don’t know jesus? How they gonna live their life?
Sometime for me I almost forgot what God had done in my life. I am the girl that the Lord had pick me up from the dirty water and give me a living water so I can live. I know is not to late to share the Gospel in sight of the detention centre. But while we are out here and have so many young people who need love and care. They need to know the truth and love. We should tell them and love and show Jesus way for them. So they will not get lost and they will have the eternal life like us. I want to tell them that God love them so much. And they not alone. Even thought we walk through the valley of darkness but The LORD waiting for them. He is true love and care for His children… I want to show the world that they are love by God. And I believe that one day they will know that the LORD love them so much. And they dream is will come through by God.

At bible school this weekend we have the women conference….
I learned about Hope and suffering…Hope and suffering will come together.
When you get into the challenging time, we need to rejoice in the suffering. When we stay under the suffering is produce to a good fruits. (Romans8:22-25)
During the conference we can see that God had move in women’s heart. They had set free from the bondage in their life. We learned not to carry other heavy but give to God. And our job is to encourage, pray, teach them how to live their life according to God will.
