New Christian volunteers in Thailand work to share the Gospel with TheTide® ministry

The Tide® ministry Director Don Shenk: ‘This work would not be possible without the dedication of those who are on fire for the Gospel’

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Christianity in Thailand is growing! A country that reports less than 2% of believers, Thailand has a dense Buddhist population where many have never heard the Gospel before. Thanks to the work of invaluable donors and volunteers, The Tide® (www.thetide.org) ministry, a global missional outreach ministry that shares the Gospel daily through radio broadcasts in over 20 different languages on three continents, is continuing its’ important work across Thailand.

“The Gospel is changing the hearts of many in Thailand, and we can’t thank the many volunteers and donors who put their efforts together to make it happen enough,” The Tide® ministry director Don Shenk commented. “This work would not be possible without the dedication of those who are on fire for the Gospel. Often, those who come to know the Lord through our broadcasts are the ones who know how valuable it can be and volunteer their own time and talents to help share the Good News with others!”

One man, a tuk-tuk driver who heard the Gospel through The Tide® ministry’s radio broadcasts, volunteered to advertise the broadcasts on his tuk-tuk with flyers. Another group of volunteers — including a high school senior, a university student, and a young father for five — spent time learning how to edit and produce the broadcasts themselves in order to help get the Gospel into their communities. Even more people are working to print the information about the broadcasts on shirts to spark conversations.

One of The Tide® ministry’s partners on the ground in Thailand commented, There may not be large numbers of people coming to Christ at this point, but the ones who are coming to Christ have the potential to influence large numbers of people in the future.”

“We love to see how new believers take their faith and really make it their own,” Shenk said. “The response of the listeners in Thailand is incredibly encouraging, and we pray that these volunteers continue to share the Good News with those in their communities!”
