What is a Kingdom Friendship?
Kingdom Friendships is a relatively new initiative that creates partnerships between Canadian churches and Wycliffe projects worldwide. In our case, this is a relationship between Bethany Chapel and Wycliffe Thai Foundation, an organization that is involved in scripture use, Bible translation, literacy, and mobilizing the local church as well as missionaries from the local and surrounding areas. Bethany’s involvement in this will enable Wycliffe Thai to extend their reach into these project areas by providing them additional resources, prayer, support and sharing of ideas. Kingdom Friendships, once executed, provides the framework for short-term missions to have long-term impact and measurable results.
BETHANY CHAPEL AND WYCLIFFE THAILAND
The Kingdom Friendship team continues to work with Wycliffe Thailand to explore opportunities where individuals and teams might engage with the excellent work being done to reach the lost for Christ. Please continue to pray for the Bethany's Kingdom Friendship team as well as those who serve together in Thailand.
Please contact Lyle Simpson if you have any questions about our Kingdom Friendship at surfnslopes (at) yahoo.com or 403-701-9090.
What can I do?
Regardless of your role in the church, you can be involved in Kingdom Friendships. We want to connect with the personnel of Wycliffe Thai (who are primarily Thai and Asian people) and encourage them in their faith and their mission. Ultimately, through these relationships, we may also be in direct contact with others in the local Thai church. Perhaps your connecting group could adopt a Thai missionary to pray for and communicate with.
Or your Sunday school class could write letters to missionary kids in Thailand. Maybe you could take some of your vacation time to travel to Thailand and help out using whatever your skill set might be. Or do a Bible study or ESL class over Skype with members of the (English-speaking) Thai church.
Because this relationship provides the scaffolding to enable multiple levels of connection, you can get involved however you like. Be creative!
