2. How does C.B.i. itseif operate? On the field, the school is operated by a group of dedicated national and missionary leaders. Primarily they teach, either full-time or parttime, help with administrative duties, lead students in school activities such as preaching trips to villages on week-ends. Leading in short-term schools either on campus or in churches also occupies the time and energy of the staff. C.B.I, operates on a three-term school year from June to March with a one
month Christmas break in December.

4. What is the ministry and goai of C.B.I.? The purpose is two-fold: First, to take part in evangelizing the lost. Since less than 1% of the Thai people are Christian, the Gospel is greatly needed in Thailand. Secondly, to pro vide leadership training or education both in
the school and in the churches. S.E.A.C.S./ C.B.I, is committed to the belief that both

evangelism and education are vital to the growth of God's Kingdom! C.B.I, facilities are used for translation work, printing, and record ing of programs to be broadcast over South
east Asia.
