Empower will be assisting the Church in Southeast Asia in the following ways:

  • Establishing Bible Training Centres for young pastors and church planters in 30 jungle villages of Vietnam (television screen, computer, electric generator, and satellite dish = $1,000/village training centre). Each location will train 15 young workers virtually from a training facility in Saigon or Hanoi. Because of the overwhelming need for pastors, the three-year Bible course will be compressed into one year, with the students studying six days each week.
  • 30 Motorcycles ($900 each) to speed church planters on their long journeys in Laos and Cambodia.
  • 50 Mini Farms (only $350/​Mini Farm) in Laos, for pastors in areas that have been devastated by the effects of Covid. Livestock, pigs, frogs, fish, farming equipment, seeds, and seedlings will all help provide food for the pastors and their families. But pastors are also sharing this food they raise with the poor people in their congregations and villages, effectively feeding the flock” in a whole new way. Including all Mini Farms, an anticipated 500,000 fish will be raised this year alone. These crucial gifts of food will make a significant impact on lost souls in Laos.
  • Tens of thousands of desperately needed and cherished Bibles and New Testaments for believers and seekers in various ethnic languages in the region.
  • Financial support of hundreds of national evangelists ($40/​month) to travel into unreached areas of the countries by foot and motorcycle. This year, in Laos and Cambodia alone, church planting networks are prepared to share the Gospel with 50 major ethnic groups and 150+ subgroups who have never before heard the Gospel. Vietnam is pivotal to the growth of the national church in the region due to its location and history. In the next 12 months, national leadership in Vietnam is anticipating the establishment of 650 new churches in just the western border region of the country.
