This is some short facts about LEC. I feel it`s a bit important that people know how LEC is organized, `cause I think it`s a very well organized church. Maybe Norway can learn a thing or two from Lao. To the people I know.. Miss everyone. Miss Norway and snow. But I have a excellent time here, and would not be without it! God bless, Hakuna Mattata
Lao Evangelical Church (LEC) is NMS’s (Norwegian Mission Society) partner organisation in Lao PDR. It is trough this partnership that Kristian and I have gotten this opportunity. It is also trough in this church where Kristian and I work. Our churc`s name is Nakham.
LEC is organized in a way; I would say is very wise. This is a church with thousands of members. Just here in Vientiane it`s more than 8000 christians. To be the leader of such a flock is a big responsibility, and Pastor Khamphone is doing a very good job. But he is not just leading the church, he`s being an excellent role model.
This is Naxai church. It is not our church, I just like the picture
LEC is divided into many churches, spread trough out the country. Each church has one or several pastors. There are also people hired to take care of, for example economy and different helping projects. An example of that, is NMS`s and LEC`s “Pure water in Laos” project. Salome work as an assistant in that project. He went to Hald in 2006/2007 together with Khamphet, who work with economy.
Further on is the churches divided into cell groups. These groups consist of 6-12 people. They meet privately to shear Gods word, to pray and praise. Each group has a leader, who is responsible for the groups. The leader “answers” to the group`s church. When a group gets more then 12 members, the group divides into two groups. The new group gets a new leader, and the group meets at a new place. These groups are extremely important to the church. Since they are in more direct contact with the local people, most of the evangelising happens trough this groups. And It brings results. Each week, several people turn there hearts to Jesus and gets saved.
At praise practise in our church. People are very devoted to the cvurch, and use lots of there sparetime there.

Etter det skulle vi hjem. Da klarte vi selvsagt å kjøre oss bort. Samtidig opplevde det vi kan kalle en liten tropisk storm. Det regna og blåste som bare det. Og det drev vi og rota i, i 2,5 timer. Merkelig.
Sitter i kirka nå. Utrolig å se hvor gudfryktige og fokuserte folka er her. Fantastisk. Det er virkelig bra mennesker som er her. Så snille og hyggelige.
Er ikke min pc/mac, så har fortsatt ikke bilder, men det kommer :D
Until then, stay blessed!!
