Thailand is a nation of 70 million people that remains 99% unreached. Our team’s vision is to partner with Thai churches to mobilize and form teams of Thai disciple makers and church planters to impact the unreached through multiplying movements.
2018 marked the beginning of year four for our team, and God began to open doors for mobilizing the Thai church! Our focus was to broaden to include more regions of Thailand. Over the course of this past year, our team trained over 200 people across thirteen provinces and five church networks. From those trainings, ten disciple-making or church-planting teams were formed. These ten teams had over 1,000 spiritual conversations, with more than sixty new believers and over forty baptisms.
Many of our Thai partners are reporting signs, wonders, and healings as a key aspect of seeing families come to know Jesus. In northern Thailand, a Thai partner shared her testimony with a masseuse named Kim and led Kim and her whole family to faith.
Two months later, Kim’s mother-in-law, Tam, was beaten by her husband, and she was blinded in one eye. Tam fled to Kim’s house, where Kim prayed for her in Jesus’ name, and Tam was healed that night! Tam and her daughter immediately responded by putting their faith in Christ!
Tam shared her testimony at the house church just three days later: “The doctor said I wouldn’t see for at least three months. But after Kim prayed for me, I was able to see perfectly that night! Praise God!”
In another part of Thailand, our team trained a Muslim-background believer in southern Thailand named Shelley on how to make disciples.
Shelley shared a vision that God had given her: “I was standing in the ocean, and I saw hundreds of Muslims around me that were waiting to be baptized. On the beach, I saw all the sick and paralyzed people from my village being healed! I know that God is calling me toward this vision, and now I have the tools to pursue it. Your team coming is God’s way of helping me to achieve this vision!”
The following week, Shelley’s brother, who was paralyzed, put his faith in Jesus. The next day, he began to show signs of improvement in his limbs! Pray for God’s kingdom to expand in Thailand!
