Opportunities to serve the Lord in Thailand

We know that where there is a need for a servant of God, that there also a person that God is calling to meet that need.  We believe this and we are praying that God will use His wonderful and mysterious ways to match the right people with the right ministries.

There are three opportunities to serve in Thailand that we are praying for at this time.  One is short-term and the other are long-term.

First, the short-term opportunity.  If you would like to come and serve the orphans and street children at Blessing Home for one week or longer (as long as you are willing to stay).  We need dedicated Christians who will help care for the children during the daytime Monday through Friday, and do visitation with the families or guardians who take care of the children on Saturday afternoons.  The cost of service is minimal.  You will need about $750 per month for living expenses plus your plane ticket (you could actually live on less if you would live as a typical Thai person).  We need many people to do this.  If this sounds like you, please contact us at thailandumc@gmail.com

The second opportunity is long-term (at least one year).  We are working together with Rev. John Kim of the Korean Methodist Church to start a new international school in Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat) in Northeast Thailand called Wesley International School.  It is our hope that we will be able to reach those for Christ who will become the future leaders in Thailand.  We need committed Christians who are certified teachers for teaching Pre-school or Kindergarten.  The position pays salary and free housing is provided as well.  If you or someone you know is interested, please contact Rev. John Kim at kery89@hotmail.com 

The final opportunity is for career missionaries (three years or longer).  We need spiritually mature Christians who can serve in the following ways:
1.  We need entrepreneurs who are gifted at starting new businesses, who would do economic development projects at churches and ministries to help make them self-sufficient.
2.  We need seminary graduates (M.Div or higher) who are called to teach at a Bible college in Thailand.
3.  We need humble servants willing to do urban ministry at Blessing Home, doing visitation in the poor communities where children are at risk of the child sex trade.
All of the above career missionaries must raise your own support (we will help to guide your in this process) and will need to go to language school in Thailand for 6 months prior to going to your place of ministry.  There is no ministry as exciting and fulfilling as serving the Lord on the front lines of the gospel.   If this sounds like you, please contact us at thailandumc@gmail.com.

If you know of someone who may be interested in any of these opportunities, please forward this article to them.
