The Ethnic Thai of Thailand
Living among the Ethnic Thai people
“Community care and collective cooperation has demonstrated Thailand’s resilience and unity in fighting the COVID pandemic. Our team has had the opportunity to be part of this care and has seen some exciting development of interest in the Gospel. Please pray for many more meaningful encounters that offer people the chance to respond to God’s love for them. Please also pray for the development of the faith community leaders.” — Muana, Team Leader
Ethnic Thai culture is steeped in the belief that the cycle of death and rebirth continues until broken through enhanced personal wisdom. Buddhism is an intrinsic part of Ethnic Thai culture with many believing to be Thai is to be Buddhist. This makes it challenging for Ethnic Thai people to see how they can follow Jesus without rejecting their culture and community.
God is at work among the Ethnic Thai and He is drawing people to Himself. Over the past years, the team has built relationships within their community, begun to share stories of Jesus and walked with people as they have chosen to follow Him. This journey to faith is by the grace of God. Praise God that numerous faith communities are now regularly meeting and local leaders are being equipped to teach and lead their own people. These small faith communities are discovering what it means to follow Jesus in a distinctively Thai way.
