Christopher & Shannon Sorensen

Career Missionaries since 2003, serving the Central Thai people of Thailand.

Christopher and Shannon Sorensen launched to Thailand to begin their church-planting efforts among the Northern Khmer people in January 2003. They spent 15 months learning the Central Thai language in Chiangmai. After studying N. Khmer language and culture with Brian and Melissa Mitchell, Margie Jones, and Kelli (Biggs) Doss in Surin, Christopher and his team, along with local Thai pastor Wanlop Intachai, began working on a Bible curriculum to reach the Northern Khmer people and plant an SDA church in Surin province. With the help of a great bunch of student missionaries and local Thai laymen, they also started New Life Radio, Surin. Later Robbie and Kelli Doss joined the team for the Bible study field testing and evangelism phase of the project. In 2014 AFM’s Northern Khmer team merged with AFM’s Central Thai team to jointly develop and publish music and Bible study materials for use throughout the Thailand Adventist Mission. Other major objectives have been 1) the establishment of Peace Music Academy as a joint “Center of Influence” with the General Conference of SDAs and AFM, and 2) the planting of an SDA church in Khon Kaen, Thailand. We praise God for each person brought to Jesus through these projects, and for every one of our faithful friends and supporters who have given so generously over the years to make it all possible!

The Importance of People

I’m not an extrovert, and on that Sabbath morning I felt stressed.

The Disappearing Boy

It was Sabbath afternoon at the church. Pa La had come with her two grandsons, Doramon, an eight-year-old autistic boy, and Mita, who was five.
