The Good News of Jesus is good news for all and cannot be contained.

yes! i WILL GIVE TODAy so the good news can be shared

From Outback Australia to Asia and Africa, there is a movement of people. They are the sowers and growers of vibrant faith communities. I want to share with you some good news, two good news stories actually, generated by the life-transforming power of the Good News of Jesus.

Nan Tong’s Story
As with the majority of Ethnic Thai people, Nan Tong was Buddhist and he even trained as a Buddhist Monk. A Global Interaction cross-cultural worker connected with Nan Tong and as their friendship grew, they began discussing the differences between Buddha and Jesus. For Nan Tong, life as a monk was steeped in a tradition of works; hard work, good works, obedient and sacrificial works. He firmly believed these works would earn him merit and help him gain favour with Buddha.

As his friendship with the Global Interaction cross-cultural worker developed, their conversations deepened. They spoke about Jesus and Buddha, faith and works. By God’s grace, Nan Tong accepted that salvation only comes through Jesus and in this knowledge Nan Tong found freedom and joy! The burden of endless works was lifted and he was free to love and follow Jesus as the leader of his life!

Nan Tong comes from a community where less than 2% of people identify as followers of Jesus. This means that it is unlikely he would have heard the message of God from an Ethnic Thai person he trusted. Your partnership with Global Interaction’s ministry means that cross-cultural workers are on the ground among least-reached communities, building relationships and sharing the message of Jesus. You are part of something bigger!

Mae Ran’s Story
Mae Ran is an Ethnic Thai woman. During a time of family difficulties, a Global Interaction cross-cultural worker demonstrated genuine care and love to Mae Ran and her family. Mae Ran’s heart was open to receive the kindness of a stranger, but why would someone who does not know her or her family, draw near to them? Why would this person support them during their time of hardship? These questions led Mae Ran to be open to a greater love than she had previously known.

Mae Ran’s testimony is one of transformation. Through being introduced to Jesus’ love by the cross-cultural worker’s actions and words, Mae Ran was transformed from being filled with fear and hate to love and compassion. Her desire is now to serve God and share Jesus with others in her community.

Nan Tong and Mae Ran are two local believers who are part of Ethnic Thai faith communities being nurtured by our team. Global Interaction is purposefully sowing and growing vibrant faith communities. As prayerful and financial partners, you are an integral part of this too!
