Christ said that the opportunities for the harvest would be great, but the workers would be few, and this has never been truer than it is today in Thailand. The harvest is great...but there are so few workers. Lord, send us workers for the harvest.
We see our purpose in Thailand to be facilitators of the Word through an array of programs that reach the never-reached, planting churches where none exist today, training up a new generation of missionary and Thai church planters and disciple makers, and serving compassionately those who are at greatest risk in our community.
Prayerfully consider joining our team, either as a prayer and financial supporter or as a member of our ministry team in Thailand. A month, a year, or a lifetime, whatever the length of service, your presence with us in Thailand will have an eternal impact on the Thai people you serve.
We are publishing a daily prayer request on our Facebook page. Follow https://www.facebook.com/TheVitalMessage for the latest prayer needs and updates.

Shortly after celebrating the arrival of 2020, the first of what was to be several teams from the USA arrived in Thailand. I (Tammy) hosted this small team of two friends from Marion Oaks Assembly of God in Ocala, FL. We had a fantastic multi-week road trip as we visited with pastors and women's ministry leaders from across the Kingdom. We prayed for them and joined them to dream of what God will do in and through their ministry. Within weeks of the team returning to the USA, COVID–19 hit us. The borders of Thailand were closed, and the government ordered everyone to stay home and only go out for essential activities.
Every few months, my dad publishes a newsletter to all our friends and family around the world. After 16 years, he is letting me share a story. Thanks Dad!
Every weekend, my dad and I spend hours walking through our community here on the east side of Bangkok. Dad powers my wheelchair while I meet and greet our neighbors. We've lived in this community for 17 months and have met so many people. Our hope and our prayer is that God will use our presence in this community to draw our Buddhist and Muslim neighbors to Him.
While it may not be easy to live abroad, especially when confined to a wheelchair, I know that God has called me here for this time and for His purpose. My ministry may not be typical, but I know that God is working through me to touch the lives of those who live and work around us.
Just as God has called me to serve here in Thailand, I know that He has also called you for His plans and His purpose. Philippians 4:12 reminds us that our social, economic, or physical limitations are not what defines us nor do they limit what God can accomplish through us. "For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength." So can you!
