Our team’s vision is to see a healthy Thai church born where Thai people hear the truth and are discipled to know and love Jesus. The team is diligently learning the Thai language and broadly sharing the Gospel, primarily amongst college students in Bangkok. As students’ hearts are moved by the Gospel, they are pulled into the team’s lives, Bible studies, and worship. We long for Jesus to be honored in Thailand through the Thai people!

Ways to Pray

For joy in Jesus that would energize our team toward diligent language study and pursuit of people!
For wisdom in our next steps of church planting and discipleship.

P, H, C, and I

We lead a training team to support new workers in their first two years of transition, mentoring them to become healthy long-term workers who are effective in this cultural context. We also serve a local (national) CH plant toward deeper understanding of G’s word and application to their daily lives.

Ways to Pray

Pray for our kids. As they struggle with where they fit whether here or in the U.S., both are foreign to them. Pray they would continue to learn and cling to their identity in JC and walk in the faith they proclaim.
Pray for local believers here to develop deep foundations of faith that can not be wavered by intense persecution and pressure. That they would be the good soil.
Pray also for the Spirit to move mightily in opening ears to hear and hearts to receive the Good News. We want to see the name of JC exalted across the land and drown out the call to prayer.
