Missionary in Thailand
What you say if I told you that there is a place where there are millions upon millions that have never heard the gospel message? A place that is so dark that you would blush with shame to know what is going on in streets alleys and dark roads. Places where promiscuity is rampant and the world knows it. It is a Mecca for the sexually perverted. It is a place where Satan has a strong hold. This place is Thailand and I would like to introduce to you a man that has decided to forgo the comforts of America and take the gospel where it is the darkest.
Philip Bassham studied and did an internship at the Our Generation Training Center. And now he is currently learning the language in Bangkok Thailand. He trotting along in learning a language that is EXTREMELY different than english. He puts in 10-12 hour days learning the language and studying a culture that is vastly different than the culture he grew up in Texas. He is experiencing things that most Americans will know nor understand. His wife is currently pregnant with their second child while in Thailand. Can you imagine being away from your family in culture that you don’t understand. A language that you don’t understand. What a chore to live let alone bring another life into this world. Imagine the doctor’s visits, unable to understand fully what is being said to them.
Now a question one might ask is why? Why would a young family go to a place like Thailand. There is no family, no friends no co-workers. They are alone. Why? Well I will tell you why. It was the gospel that changed Philip Bassham’s life and it was the gospel that changed Lori Bassham’s life and they can not but speak of the things they have seen in the Word of God and have experienced from it. They know that same gospel can change the people in Thailand.
So my question that I pose to you is this. Why not go and take the message that changed your life to people that have relatively no chance of ever hearing it? Why not pray about Indonesia or China or India or Somalia or Paraguay or Croatia? Why not ask God to send you to take his gospel to a world that is dark? I think if you listen to Him, he already has. God has told his church time and time again to take his gospel and go into the world and teach it. So the real question is are you willing to pay the price?
