This meeting also provided us with an opportunity to meet together with Dr. David Wu, who is now retired, but is still one of the most connected and knowledgable United Methodists when dealing with church issues here in Southeast Asia. An hour with Dr. Wu answered many questions we had and provided insights that we needed. We were very pleased that he agreed to be a source of wisdom and counsel for us in the future.
Many people have asked about organizing VIM (Volunteers in Mission) teams coming here to Thailand, and what needs there are. Right now we have three needs for VIM teams.
- The greatest need we have is for teams to come to teach English. Team members would work one on one or in very small groups to tutor children and adults in English. If a VIM team came during a time when children were off from school, an English daycamp would be a great ministry.
- Another need is for medical teams, especially health education teams.
- A third need is for computer education classes. A team that came for this purpose would need to bring their own notebook computers and other equipment.
If you are interested in forming a VIM team, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com
If you are interested in sending a donation to fulfill a specific need, please look at the Thailand Wish List .
