The Laotian outreach continues to be a vital part of our ministry in the Fresno community. Brother John Soukkeo serves as the full time pulpit preacher and minister for the Laotian brethren. Attendance averages between 120 and 130 each Lord's Day. They also meet on Wednesday night for a mid-week bible study. They have many times of fellowship together and especially love to have potlucks. Some of the members of the Laotian congregation have been attending since the ministry started in 1982. Many of their children have now integrated into our English speaking bible classes and worship assembly.
