Kyle & Cindi Tumberg

Kyle, Cindi & Ali Tumberg have been Career Missionaries since 2012, serving the Central Thai Buddhists of Thailand.

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.

Journeying into Health Ministry

I still marvel as I think about all that has transpired in the last three years. God has shown me that He is very capable of providing what we need to do the work He has given us. As we look to the future, we see much work yet to do and many challenges yet to overcome.

When the Wall Fell

The mother’s face had a painfully stoic look. Although she was doing her best to be cordial, I sensed her grief. What was she thinking?
What must she be feeling? My heart went out to her.

God’s House

Although we don’t know where we will end up, we are confident that the same God who led us to just the right spot more than five years ago can do the same thing for us again.
