After much prayer and deliberation, our missions team has decided that God is leading us to Thailand. Now begins the process of praying about which people group we are to focus our attention on. For sure this I know, the Gospel is needed in Thailand. Thailand is known as the land of smiles. Unfortunately, the Thai people are a friendly people who at this point are yet to follow Jesus in large numbers. They are a people who believe in a mixture of different things, with Theravada Buddhism playing a major role in most areas. My heart breaks for these people stuck in this false religion. I am eager to go now, but know that I must be patient as we go through the process.

I have no doubt that God will place us where we need to be. Whether it is in the mountains of the North, the beaches of the South, the high plateau in the Northeast, or on the streets of Bangkok, God’s glory is the main goal. The goal is to do that by helping established missionaries already on the ground. But for now the plan is to begin a time of prayer and fasting.
