Laos Mission Week: July 18-23

Date Posted: 7/17/2018

The United Methodist Church of Laos includes 60 pastors and churches, some of these being house churches and most of them led by pastors who are farmers. I am pleased to serve as their bishop as well as yours. 

The Texas Annual Conference does not have any official partnerships with international mission work. Instead, we encourage local churches to develop those partnerships and nurture them through prayer, mission trips, and financial support.

I have invited four of our missionaries from Laos to visit our conference July 18-23. As part of Laos Mission Week, they will connect with their supporting churches, visit other churches as invited for sharing their stories, and participate in Sunday worship with local congregations. In addition, we will offer convocations on the evening of July 19 in Houston and the morning of July 20 in East Texas.

If you are interested in extending an invitation to our friends, please contact Christine Riggle,, who will be scheduling the visits.

Additional details will be shared as they become available.
