"This is Thailand. She’s beautiful, friendly, getting richer by the day and everybody loves her cooking. She’s proud, too. Especially proud that, unlike all her neighbors, she’s never been ruled by a Colonial power. Which might be one reason she has never embraced Christianity – a foreigner’s religion.

Traditional Thai Buddhism – with its Hindu deities and spirit worship - is still the faith of 90% of her people. She has quite a few Muslims, too but Christians are so few they barely count as a garnish on top of the pie. In some areas of Thailand the good news about Jesus has never been heard or seen before. But the Thai church – little though it is – has a mind to change that. And we want to help - any way we can.

Here in Thailand, we’re finding a lot of ways…

Beginning with a friendly smile, a pat on the back, an invested friend, a mentor – our dream is to help Thai Christians bring the Kingdom of Heaven to the Kingdom of Thailand. Because, if you think she’s beautiful now, wait till you see Thailand dressed up for the biggest feast of all."
