TV Production Vehicle – Thailand
Thailand is less than 1% Christian. There are very few spiritual resources for any of the 73 languages represented. This Television Production Vehicle is a fully self-contained 4 wheel drive unit that can go to any church and broadcast and record a sermon or presentation in any language and begin building up the library of spiritual resources. Using brand new technology it can broadcast live to an online platform like Facebook using nothing more than cellular data on an iPhone.
The truck has been purchased on a loan and we need to pay it back.

Praise the Lord we have the funds to print the 1st 5,000 copies! We need another $5,000 to print an additional 5,000 copies.
*Any amount over the goal will go towards translating it into other languages.
Man of Peace
“Man of Peace” is a condensed version of “The Desire of Ages,” which is a really thick book when translated into other languages. “Man of Peace” is a perfect introduction to Jesus Christ for people who never heard His name.

There is a people group deep in the mountains of Mindoro, an island in the Philippines, that live in deep fear and superstition that keeps them from education and proper nutrition.

The children often go all day without food while their parents are out scavenging in the jungle for something edible. Your gift will sponsor a missionary, Bible worker, and some food for these poor starving children.
