The 16th World Outreach International Nations Course recently concluded in Chiang Mai Thailand. With fifteen participants from eight nations in attendance, there were WOI personnel as well as representatives from sending churches and some people with a strong interest in a future in missions.
The Nations Course is a six-week cross-cultural training course designed to launch people into effective cross-cultural ministry, equip them to bring the Gospel to least-reached people groups, and promote life-long learning.
It was encouraging to see the participants respond to the teaching on cross-cultural life and ministry and gain more understanding about the complexities of crossing cultures to minister the Gospel. By the end of the course, participants received tools and principles they can use in cross-cultural ministry for years to come.
Participants made the following comments about The Nations Course:
“I received strength, inspiration, and strategy to minister more effectively.”
“Very helpful for my ministry.”
“I received more than I expected.”
“With over sixteen years on the field, I still found The Nations Course useful and inspiring.”
“The Nations Course has clarified my role in my host country.”
