The goal of the Thai church is to plant a
church in every province, district, sub-district and eventually every
village in Thailand. According to E Star Foundation Though the gospel
has been in Thailand for 188 years, 75% percent of the sub-districts
still have no church. 60% of the country’s population lives in these
sub-districts. The three northernmost provinces have only 5% of the
population in Thailand yet 51% of the Christians. For decades missionaries
have bypassed millions of lost people to reach those on their list. It
is exciting to see the gospel spreading more in the South.
Teaching the Word in Thailand
We are studying through the book of Genesis on God's
Word for Today radio program.
Podcasts of the programs are at
www.wdbydana.com/Radio and listed also on iTunes. Sunday
mornings at church we are studying Psalms, and Wednesday nights we are studying
the book of Nehemiah.
