SERVING IN : Thailand
MINISTRY FOCUS : Evangelism
David & Lainie believe the call “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20 is not meant to be an option but a command! God has been working since the beginning of time for His single purpose to reach all the nations and bring them back to Himself gathering His lost sheep. He has called us to help Him gather His flock!
David & Lainie feel the call and passion for The Unreached People Groups of the world. They did not know the specific area where God was calling them and after 6 months of praying and confirmations after beginning candidate school, God placed the Isan people in Northeastern Thailand on their hearts. Of the over 3.2 billion unreached people, over 85% live in Asia which represents the largest majority of unreached people living in the world today and among the 18 million Isan people, it is reported that only .27% claim to be evangelical Christians.
They will be going as interns to work with Andre & Karen Provost who are veteran missionaries amongst the Isan people in Thailand. They will be involved with village church planting throughout the thousands of isolated villages scattered across the twenty provinces of Northeast Thailand. David & Lainie have been married since January 2021 and have one daughter, Selah, who was born in February of 2022. They are currently fundraising and increasing in knowledge as they prepare to move to Thailand in January 2023.
