Thailand

By faith, we see the unreached of Thailand authentically responding to the gospel and being discipled into biblically-based, community-transforming churches that engage in mission. Our mission is to make disciples where He is not yet known.

Communities where Christ is least known

The Central Thai

There are very few Christians (0.25%) among the Thai who live in the central plain region, which includes the capital city of Bangkok. Many districts and sub-districts in this region have no known Christians and no Christian workers. SIM is recruiting multi-skilled church planting teams to bring the gospel to this significant group of people in Thailand.

University Students

There 2.5 million students at 170 universities in Thailand. Many of these come from areas where the gospel has never been preached. University is often a time of self-exploration and considering new ideas, which creates a great opportunity to introduce students to Christ. Most of Thailand’s universities have no Christian work happening amongst students. Opportunities exist from opening new campuses to joining existing campus work. Teaching English is a large and strategic opportunity, because the new Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) community has chosen English as its medium for communication. Students know that their career success will be dependent on their ability to speak English. They desire to learn from first-language English speakers. Our desire is to have workers who are committed to building relationships with Thai university students, evangelising and making disciples of new believers. 

Prayers

1

Pray for God to raise up workers to build multi-skilled church planting teams in the least reached parts of Thailand. Pray that God will break down spiritual strongholds of resistance to the gospel in these areas.

Great news for Good Kids

An hour’s drive out from the city of Chiang Mai, behind a few narrow, winding country roads lined with rice paddies, the Good Kids Preschool is tucked away. It is a quiet morning in the village, but the schoolyard is alive with noise and movement. The school seems like any other at first glance: children running haphazardly to and fro and playing before school starts.

Far: the tale of a former Buddhist

Thailand has a long history with Buddhism. It is thought to have entered the culture long before there was even such a place as Thailand - during the third century BC, when a famous Indian emperor named Asoka was sending Buddhist missionaries into many parts of Asia. It became the official state religion in the thirteen hundreds during the kingdom of Sukkothai. 

Sports Friends moves to the megacity

Sports Friends has ministries in many of the far-flung corners of the world; from Peru, to Nigeria to Thailand. The mental scenes that correspond to those places might be something like a dusty plain with children playing football under a tree with wide, spreading branches. Or a field lined with palm trees, young girls avoiding monsoon-season puddles as they practice volleyball. And sure, these picturesque rural settings really are some of the places where Sports Friends works, but what about sports ministry in an urban context, where fields and courts are not in open spaces, but tucked amidst buildings and side streets?

Seeing a new future for Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya was once a mighty capital. Now it is a forgotten provincial town - and one with scarcely any Christian witness. But a few SIM cross-cultural workers and their local partners see something new happening in Ayutthaya. Watch this video to hear more about their vision.

Numbers - Accounting as Mission

Accountant Veronica is amazed at how God is using her gifts and skills

Linking arms in Thailand

Chiang Mai and Ayutthaya occupy opposite ends of Thailand, but they are strung together by a common thread: SIM's Hope for Life Thailand. Now the Faithful Witness initiative is being introduced to the region and joining in their transforming work.

Prangs freedom in the Holy Spirit

The spiritual world was always real for Prang. But it was the world of dark, evil spirits.

Planting seeds of hope

The Esan region of northeast Thailand is often described as one of the hardest places to do ministry in Thailand. Christians are few and far between, Buddhism is strong, and drug addiction is widespread.

It touched my heart

PbeeMai was like any other twenty-year-old: looking for validation from his peers, wanting to be well-liked and popular. But he saw something different – something perhaps even worthwhile – in the way Brian welcomed students into his home and built relationships with them.

God of the City: Church planting in Bangkok

Chris and Rawee are pastors at Grace Community Church (GCC) in Bangkok, and while the people gathering for Sunday service are obviously Christian, most Bangkokians are not, making church planting in the city a venture in reaching the least reached.

From noodles to soccer balls

Aof had gone to church for many Sundays and had said many “Amens” to the prayers people had prayed for her – but nothing really worked until she challenged God herself.

Choosing divine love, for better or for worse

The Fawcetts were eager to enter ministry. But God called the Fawcetts to wait before they could embark to Ayutthaya.
