Working with UK Thai, based in Manchester
As OMF missionaries, David and Mary retired after 23 years of work in Thailand and have devoted much of their time to supporting the Thai Christian community in the UK. Their aim is to locate Thai Christians (of the 50,000 Thai presently in the UK only three in 1,000 are Christians), and link them together in fellowship.
“We seek to strengthen their faith, so that they will be able to reach out to unbelieving Thai friends. To do this we have formed the Network of Thai Christians (UK) . The main focus of the ministry is the formation of monthly Thai fellowship groups in various locations around the country. Presently we have eleven in England, two in Scotland, and one in Ireland. We also have fellowship weekends for Bible training twice a year, and also a Thai believers Bible Camp each summer. The work continues to grow, and we see about 10 Thai coming to faith each year.”
