Overall goal In order to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached in Laos we need to mobilize a generation of believers ready to share the Good News. Our role is to raise up vibrant followers of Jesus, model a vibrant community of Jesus followers within our teams, businesses and outreach ministries, and then send them out.

The carpentry and metalwork shop is part of our discipleship program.  Our goal is to provide a place for young people to work and grow in their faith.  A sustainable business helps us to have an active role in the community and helps to support the program financially.
