...With an "Oink Oink" here and an "Oink Oink" there...
As Sherri and I wrap up our term as GBGM missionaries and will soon begin our new ministry in Thailand with the Thailand Methodist Mission (visit the website at thailandmethodist.org), we are trying to tie up some loose ends. One of the projects we have been trying to complete is an economic development project at Almighty God UMC in Northeast Thailand. The economic development projects are designed to provide income for the pastor and church to become financially independent.
A new economic development project has just begun at Almighty God UMC under the able leadership of Pastor Nampon. The project which was chosen and has now begun is a pig farm. We have been told that it takes about 4 months to raise pigs ready for the market, so the plans are for the first 5 cycles, the vast majority of profit will be reinvested in the project to make it larger and more profitable. Hopefully this project will help this church to not only become self-sufficient, but also have self-generated funds for mercy and outreach ministries. We know God will use this project to be a blessing to the church and the whole community of Nonsomboon.
