Thailand Video Report
by David Jacobson SOC Director
Five great video reports about the Karen people from Thailand to Omaha, Nebraska by our SOC Director David Jacobson.
Refugee Camps in Thailand
The Karen people have been relocated by the World Community to many parts of the world, many are here in the United States. This great relocation was God ordained as He has moved mightily among these wonderful Karen people, and now many are missionaries spreading the Gospel throughout the world.
School of Christ in Bangkok, Thailand
This is the third School of Christ held in Bangkok and what a difference it has made among the people. Great testimonies have come through God's merciful dealings with these people in deliverance and profound life changes. Now these beautiful people from Bangkok are taking the message of Jesus Christ throughout their homeland.
School of Christ in Burma (Myanmar)
A local Church in Burma has been training students through the School of Christ and preparing them to be missionaries in their own homeland, these Burmese missionaries have made an astounding affect on their communities winning many souls to Christ through sometimes great adversity.
The Karen people in Omaha, Nebraska
In Omaha, Nebraska, where many of the Karen people have gathered to live, they have celebrated their 60th anniversary of Independence and their Karen National Martyrs Day. The Mayor of Omaha was on hand to welcome the Karen people and encourage them to take their place in this great Nation of America. Pastor Lee Shipp came as well to preach to the Karen and challenge them to follow Christ and not a culture. Many were moved to the altar and gave their lives to the Lord.
The Karen School of Christ
Daren Downs came to Omaha, Nebraska to teach the School of Christ to the Karen people, and what a great school it was. Karen churches in St Paul, Minn. have started the School of Christ and are preparing the people to be missionaries and to start new churches to reach other Karen in the area. This is the second anniversary of a church built by a graduate of SOC in Denver, CO. where it continues to grow. The School of Christ has especially touched the youth in Kansas City, KS. stirring and challenging them to live for Christ. The Karen people now have their own website that they are running the School of Christ in their own language to reach the world.
