The Friends of Grace Bible School recently opened in the Issan area of Thailand. This school, supported by Mennonite Church Canada, will hold classes in the Friends of Grace Roi Et church. A Bible school had long been a dream for Friends of Grace, a network of about 100 worshipping groups in Laos and Thailand.
Last fall, 20 pastors and lay leaders in Laos and Thailand started studying in Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary’s Journey program. This spurred on their dream of establishing a school.
MC Canada has walked alongside Friends of Grace and has been asked to provide teachers to supplement the Thai teachers for intensive courses in the new school.
Pastor Khampane, principal of the Bible school and President of Friends of Grace, will be visiting Canada together with his wife, Pastor Thipphawan, and International Witness workers Tom and Christine Poovong in April 2024.
