- September 2000 – Now: Missionaries to Thailand
We started in Chiangmai learning the Thai language. Eight months before our first furlough, we moved to Tak, Thailand to help in Tak Baptist Church with a Thai national pastor. After our first furlough, we moved to Bangkok to study more Thai and Thai sign language. During that time, the Thai paster in Tak closed the church and left. After passing the 6th grade proficiency test in Thai, we moved to Tak to start a new church. July of 2006, we started Light Baptist Church in Tak, Thailand. We are currently teaching English for free with a Bible lesson afterwards at the Church, public schools, and the prison.
