Over the weekend, tragedy struck in the city of Korat, Thailand. A young Thai man, who was enlisted in the Thai military, took his weapon and opened fire on his peers in his barracks. He then fled to a local mall and began shooting shoppers and employees in the wall. The military and police quickly responded to the incident, and after a twelve hour standoff with multiple hostages taken, the young man was killed.
While all of this is indeed a tragedy, what is more tragic and heart-breaking is the fact that because 99.5% of the country of Thailand is non-Christian, it is highly unlikely that any of the people killed had ever heard the Gospel and accepted Christ.
Let that sink in.
That young man and all 29 of his victims have probably never ever had an opportunity to be saved and are in Hell today.
So this begs the question, what can you do to reach the country of Thailand with the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
1. You can give. You can help send young men and women who are willing to give their lives to carry the gospel to Thailand.
2. You can pray. Pray for those of wa who are in Thailand, or preparing to go to Thailand, that God would strengthen and help us as we minister to the multitudes of lost people in Thailand.
3. You can go. We need more laborers in Thailand. There are 70 million people that need to hear the gospel, and we need help. We can’t do it alone. Maybe as you’re reading this you feel the urge to go and you’re first response is, “I can’t”. You’d be exactly right. YOU can’t. But, with God, all things are possible. If you would be willing to trust God, step up, and carry the Gospel to the lost in Thailand, please contact us at Vision Baptist Missions. We would be happy to talk to you and show you how to get from where you are now, to where God wants you on the field.
