The Project Director for Lahu Living Word (LLW), Joshua Chan, started the Lahu Christian Correspondence Course (LCCC) ministry in 1995 for the Lahu speaking Christians living in the remote areas of northern Thailand and eastern Myanmar. As of the summer of 2020, in Thailand there have been over 2,500 students who have completed the 10-part course and over 3,000 students in Myanmar.
Those students who complete the LCCC program and are currently in ministry are eligible to participate in the Biblical Leadership Training (BLT). The BLT is a 3-year program designed to equip active pastors and church leaders in the basic skills of ministry: How to study the Bible and Teach it to Others; How to be a Peacemaker; How to Pastor a Church; and How to Proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom and Plant New Churches. As of the summer of 2020, over 50 pastors and church leaders have completed the 3-year program and are involved in mentoring new students in the LCCC training and planting churches in unreached areas.
As you can imagine, the Director Joshua Chan travels many kilometers almost every week of the year to plan, prepare, mentor, counsel, and teach the BLT seminars and oversee the LCCC training. His faithful 2000 Ford Ranger is not as faithful as it once was, requiring repairs and maintenance several times a month, having over 550,000 kilometers racked up. Thus, the need for a new truck. We are praying for $15,000 USD in order to purchase a good used truck to continue the ministry. Would you pray with us to that end?
