2 thoughts on “Laos”

  1. Hi! I’m interested to do a charity missions to Laos, targeting especially Pastors, full time workers and also the poor and destitute. For the first trip in 2016 (kindly advise on the suitable dates), I’ll likely come alone and next trip with my students. We will raise some funds to help particularly the above mentioned group. The Lord has laid a burden for me to bless Indo-China and I have done so except for Laos. Kindly advise.
    Blessed to be a blessing,
    Pastor Joseph Loh
