Training is an intense one-week experience that will prepare your heart and mind for serving internationally. During this time, you will focus on your relationship with God, your team and your upcoming ministry. This time has been described as a waterfall where God pours into you before you begin your ministry ASSIGNMENT. It is also a time of refreshment, where you drink deeply the spring of living water, letting your burdens from the past be washed away. Team formation will be a huge emphasis during this week in Fresno. We are very fortunate to have Ricky Sanchez join us at ORIENTATION - he is our missionary host from Thailand. Ricky is a graduate of Fresno Pacific University and played basketball on two GSAC championship teams. Ricky will teach on Thai culture, expectations, and how to serve effectively in a foreign land.
