The Klepels have been serving in Thailand for over 30 years. They began ministry in Thailand first as single missionaries. In 1990 they joined their lives and ministries and served together for 26 years.


On December 10, 2016 Gail was suddenly and unexpectedly called home to be with Jesus as she suffered a heart attack while at home in Thailand. At her memorial service the founder and General Superintendent of the Thailand Assemblies of God honored Gail for making history as the longest serving A/G missionary (34 years) and the first A/G missionary to literally give her life for Thailand.


Dan will return to the US for itineration in July this year, and then go back to Thailand in 2018 to move forward with the call and passion that God has given him for Thailand’s 68 million people. Less than 1 % of the population call themselves Christians. Dan will continue to focus on empowering new church plants, training and mentoring leaders, and helping the Christ Mercy School for stateless children.


The network of relationships that Dan and Gail have invested their lives into over the last 30 years provide a very unique platform from which to reach out to the nation of Thailand. God is calling the next generation of Thai young people to give their lives in serving Him and others. Dan is leading the initiative called “Dream Team” to provide a training tract for this next generation of leaders.
