General Descripion.
We are planning to fix missionaries' computers at several conferences held in the Chiang Mai and Bangkok areas during Chinese New Year 2007. We have also been in contact with a group of Thai who provide IT support to Christian workers in the region. They want to provide help to other conference in the area at that time (Chinese New Year is a popular time for conferences).

This is a Mission Conference Trip and is a great way to practically help missionaries.

There will also be opportunities to visit other ministries near Chiang Mai and Bangkok so that you can experience gospel ministry in these areas.

Read the blog from the 2006 trip. (Once I get it back online)

Training
A Pre-Field Manual including suggestions for support-raising, readings about short-term missions and assignments for completion will be issues upon acceptance for the team.

Residential training will be conducted in Sydney in January 2007.

Travel
Flights to Sydney not included. Please arrange own transport to Sydney for training.
Flights will be ex-Sydney to Bangkok, then Chiang Mai and return. The trip will conclude in Singapore and members can extend the trip at the conclusion.

Who
We especially need MS Windows Desktop specialists and PC hardware specialists. We can have people on the team who know their way around these, but aren't specialists, as long we have at least one guru to keep us on track.

If you work in IT, chances are you know HEAPS more than the people we will help. Your skills are useful.
