4/4/22 - Ministry training has resumed in 2022 with face-to-face monthly meetings with the local faith leaders and communities. After two years of COVID interruptions, meeting online and navigating continuing challenges, the team has adjusted how training is done to make it more accessible for leaders and their families. In spite of all the challenges, in the last two years the ministry saw a step closer toward localisation and sustainability. 

Team Leader, Muana, has shared that while some men have had to withdraw their leadership due to other pressing commitments, he’s been really encouraged to see multiple women stepping up into leadership capacities so that each faith community has a local leader. We praise God that these Ethnic Thai believers are actively and faithfully ministering within their own communities and the faith communities are growing. Thank you for your ongoing prayer and financial partnership, your support is invaluable to this ministry.

Project Code: TMwh306

As Ethnic Thai faith communities grow, our team continues to journey alongside them. The local faith communities are the fruit of many years of your prayers and partnership, as well as the faithful work of our team members. Thank you! 
 
Partnering with this project supports the growth and equipping of faith communities in rural areas of Thailand. Your partnership funds the resources our team use and distribute as they provide contextual discipleship, regular ministry training and family events to ensure leaders and local believers are supported in their faith journeys. Our team and the faith communities also cherish the mutual times of fellowship.

 Through this project, Ethnic Thai believers are strengthened and equipped to share the good news of Jesus with their families and friends. To encourage believers to grow and mature in faith, new resources are regularly developed to provide meaningful Gospel tools for rural communities that often have very limited literacy.

These include contextualised stories and materials as well as the use of MP3 players for auditory discipleship and teaching. Leaders are being supported as their capacities increase, local believers are hearing the Word of God in their language in a way they can understand, and together these faith communities are sharing the good news of Jesus with their families, friends and neighbours. 
 
Funding for this project covers:
  • Monthly discipleship and ministry training 
  • Practical resources and networking
  • Family camp for the Ethnic Thai communities of faith
  • Regional travel for emerging and current leaders
  • A small stipend for leaders who attend the ministry training days to honour their time commitment away from family and regular work responsibilities
  • Training for intercultural workers to grow in their ministry capacity as they come alongside faith communities 

This project provides key resources for Ethnic Thai faith communities as they continue to multiply in rural areas of Thailand.
