For the first time, my son, Kevin, and his wife, Jeh Sie, and Julie Teo joined me for an assignment in Nagaland from 4 to 17 Dec 2007. We ministered at two Bible colleges in Dimapur, as well as at a dynamic young church in Kohima, the state capital. The team’s ministry at Withee Bible College was featured in two local newspapers. At both colleges, all classes were closed for both students and faculty members to be at our sessions.
SEED Ministries is committed to providing financial and medicinal support to a clinic for Internally Displaced People (IDP) and villagers. Located in a war zone inside Burma, this clinic supports a population of about 10,000 people, of which about 2% are military, the rest civilian. The next medical service of any sort is a full day's trek away, over inhospitable and mountainous terrain, across enemy lines and minefields.
This is an excellent introductory course for people dipping their toes into the exciting world of Mission, but also a great refresher for people who have been involved for years to catch a fresh vision for the Nations! When I took the course, there were people who had never stepped out of New Zealand, but also pastors, and a missionary lady who had been working in central asia and the middle east for 30+ years!!
