UT Austin/Gethsemane Serve Thailand 2018

Another group of intelligent and caring students from the University of Texas-Austin are preparing themselves for the trip of a lifetime: serving the people of Thailand. Gethsemane Lutheran will partner again with Projects for Underserved Communities in making a difference for the people in Thailand. Through the leadership of Gethsemane members Mary Lou Newman and Khem Saythongkham along with faculty members from the university, these students have designed the 2018 project to be completed this summer. The students will be sharing personal stories and the project with Gethsemane members during the Easter Wednesday Connections April 11th and 25th. Do you want to know more about this ministry? The history is a story of Gethsemane and the Saythongkham family coming to Austin and Laos/Thailand. You will learn about the students and this ministry on Wednesdays April 11th and 25th.
