A GROUP IN REBIRTH
With 18 priests, the group of Thailand – Myanmar – Laos is the largest of the MEP Society. Among them, 9 are under 60 years of age and 5 are still undergoing training.
The future of this group will depend on these priests. The local chruch has made known that they have needs for training. The older priests live mostly in Thailand, but the younger ones and the newer ones are spread out over three countries: 5 in Thailand, 1 in Laos and 3 in Myanmar. Two priests cover the northern region of Maesot where they visit a dozen christian karen communities widely spread out, and help them in the domain of education. Out of the 12 volunteers, half are in the northern sector of Maesot, the other half is spread out between Bangkok, the north-east of Thailand and Laos.
