We have been serving as missionaries in Thailand since November of 2012, but our journey to missions started long before then. Several years prior, I was made aware of the incredible needs of the unreached world, and for the first time in my life I had an inkling that God might be calling me to go. About a year later I began dating Cindi, my future wife. We were actively involved in a church-planting project in Arkadelphia, AR and eventually began contemplating long-term mission service. In 2009, about four months after we married, we decided to apply with Adventist Frontier Missions. For the next couple of years we wrestled with whether or not God was truly calling us overseas. Finally, in the spring of 2011 after a week of fasting and prayer, we surrendered fully to the Lord and told Him that we were willing to go wherever He might send us, and that we would go as far forward as He led.
God led us to Khon Kaen Thailand where we have been living since 2014. We are working with a committed team of people to establish a strong church in this growing city with no Adventist presence. Although we are not music teachers, we work with Peace Music Academy to build relationships and to offer services to the public. We also work closely with a local Adventist pastor to plan evangelistic events and outreach endeavors. Our goal is to establish a strong national church body with the burden to conduct effective city ministry based on Biblical and Spirit-of-Prophecy principles.
I have learned that God continually sends the right people at the right time.

As I reflect on this experience, I am reminded that people all around us are seeking more and are open to God’s Spirit.

Be patient and persevering in your witness—realizing that some fruit grows fast, and some fruit develops slowly—but if we are faithful, we will someday see a beautiful harvest!

The first day Namon came to class, we played with my toy kitchen. Then her grandma came and talked with my parents while Namon and I played with chalk; then she needed to go home. Please pray that my friends and their families will get to know Jesus.

If I have learned anything over the past decade that I have served with AFM, it is that mission work is truly a walk of faith.
