We arrived in Bangkok to begin as career missionaries on Jan. 25th, 1986. At that time, we had two young sons. Levi was 6 and Zachary was 3. Now 30 years later, with 5 grown children and 3 grandsons, we see that God has always been faithful in every season of life.
During these past 30 years the gospel has been preached in places where people had never heard the name of Jesus. Thai people have heard the story of Jesus in their own language. Folks have put their faith in Christ and followed the Lord in baptism. Believers have been discipled and new churches planted. And the gospel continues to go forward.
We rejoice for all that has been accomplished but we know that there is still much to be done. Thailand is still a majority Buddhist nation with a very small percentage of Christians. Statistically, it appears that Christianity in Thailand may be growing at a slower rate than population growth.
Our continued service in Thailand for all of these years is directly connected with your faithful financial and prayer support. We thank God for all that YOU have done to make this past 30 years possible.
So now what? Our health is strong and our resolve is unshaken! Jesus is still Lord and many Thai people still need to hear the gospel. Thank you for continuing to stand together with us as we start our next 30 years of serving Jesus here in Thailand.
