Thinking about our first years in Chiang Rai 16 years ago after spending 2 years in Bangkok and realizing just how teaching English has truly built bridges to the hearts of the people in Northern Thailand, we moved our family up to the most Northern province in Thailand called Chiang Rai which is the heart of the Khon Muang unreached people group (upg) and in the midst of dozens of other unreached people groups with connections into Laos, Myanmar, and China.
We moved to Chiang Rai with a “vision” and “mission” from God to establish a platform of teaching English as a means to bless the community and provide a natural avenue to begin the process of planting a church which would start as a house church but that would not stay a house church but our hope was that it would have the blessing of God upon it and grow into a purpose driven, community type church that would embrace all cultures and peoples living in and around Northern Thailand and would be a church that God was pleased to use to evangelize, reach, disciple, and train people from some of the least reached people groups in our world today. What a joy is has been for all of us here who have joined God in this work to see him use ordinary people like you and me to make a tremendous difference in advancing the kingdom of our Lord Jesus in this great country and beyond.
Your Servants to the Nations in and around Northern Thailand,
