Bible Workers: All
Bible Workers are one of the most cost effective ways to truly grow the Kingdom of God. They are the voice, the face, the presence of the word of God, going door to door, meeting people, praying for them, teaching them the Bible and to look to the Heavenly Father for blessings and hope and eternal life. They already speak the language and understand the culture. They don’t need a plane ticket to get there.
Jesus for Asia has Bible workers in several countries. This fund covers wherever they may be.
Bible Workers: Thailand
Bible Workers are invaluable in reaching the many thousands of towns and villages across India. Being able to speak the language and already understanding the culture, these dedicated workers meet the people on their level. They travel to villages and pray with the people, provide Bible studies, and develop committed groups of believers that stay committed long term.
You can fully sponsor the wage of a Bible Worker in Thailand for only $240/month!
Bangkok Outreach – Woodwards
The Woodward family went to FaithCamp in October 2018, and their eyes were opened to the great need in Southeast Asia. They were shocked to learn that many people there have never even heard the name of Jesus. They felt called as a family to sell all and Follow Him. The Woodwards, Mark and Candace, and their two sons Matthew and Ethan, will begin their missionary journey in November when they will be moving to Bangkok, Thailand for language study. They desire to share the love of Jesus with the people of Thailand.
Thailand Media Team
Thailand is a least-reached country, with very few spiritual resources available to the believer. No Thai Adventist TV channels, and very few Ellen White books in Thai. In fact, in 2011, there were no EGW books available in country in Thai. Our JFA Thailand Media Team (part of Love for Asia) is recording sermons in Thai and translating SOP books (including Our High Calling and The Desire of Ages) into Thai for the upbuilding of the church and the proclamation of the Gospel. We also operate a production truck that can film and live stream church services from any part of Thailand.
Love for Asia Foundation – Thailand
Love for Asia Foundation is Jesus for Asia’s organizational presence in Thailand that provides the legal means for our missionaries to stay and work in the country. God raised up this foundation at just the time that it was needed, otherwise many missionaries and their families would have had to return home.
Sukhotai Project – Norton Family
There are hundreds of cities and towns in Asia where there is no Adventist congregation, not even a believing member. The Norton family is preparing to step into a place like this in Thailand. Their first stop is projected to be Chiang Mai for language study before moving on to Sukhothai to bring the living gospel to the precious people of that place.
“Jesus was Asian” TV series for Thailand
The Thai people have a strong sense that Christianity is a religion for Westerners, not for Asians. But Israel is part of Asia! If they knew Jesus lived in Asia, and if they knew His character, many would accept Him as their personal savior.
We are planning a trip to Israel this summer to film a Thai Adventist Pastor who was converted from Buddhism through reading the Desire of Ages. We will film him telling about the life of Christ in Thai in various places in Israel, at the sights of Jesus’ most famous miracles and teachings. We will then edit the footage into a series of TV programs for Thai television and Hope Channel SE Asia.
Your support will plant seeds in a unique way for millions.
Worthy Student Fund

Jesus4SlumKids – Bauder
Josh and Chitlada Bauder began their ministry in the On Nut 49 Slum area of Bangkok. They found sponsorship for 2 kids to go to Chiang Mai Adventist Academy in the north but then realized the kids need parents! So they moved to the north to provide a home atmosphere for them. Since then 6 more kids have joined their growing family, along with their own newborn baby girl. They have outgrown their house and now are praying for funds to build a new one, as well as provide sponsorship for more children (currently there are requests for 15 more children to join them).
Scholarships for SlumKids
One of the goals of the Bauder project is to provide scholarships for young people from the Ong Nut 49 slums to attend an Adventist Academy in Chiang Mai. In April of 2017, Josh and Chitlada made the trip with their first two students! Praise the Lord!
Please support this project so more young people like Nut and Praew can get a good, Christian education!
Gayle’s Jungle Mission
Gayle had committed to a three-month stay in Thailand in 2009, but fell in love with the Karen people, and could no longer see a life for herself in the USA. Her ministry is medical, which in-turn results in Bible studies with the people. Gayle is an exciting, passionate missionary who loves her work! She currently runs a clinic up in the mountain jungles of northern Thailand, but travels around to the villages around offering not just medical help, but spiritual as well.
Sharon Family Projects
Leroy and Lisa Sharon are missionaries to Thailand. Lisa is currently raising 4 young girls for the Lord. This focus has turned out to be the best witness to the local village which has never seen a Christian before. Leroy is traveling to local villages and schools and connecting people with the Savior through language teaching using Bible stories. Interest is growing rapidly in the Gospel and there is a call developing for a Bible School to be established in the area.
Travis Sharon lives by himself in a remote jungle area near the Thai-Burma border where he is building a school. He spends his time constructing the school buildings, planting a garden, and visiting the local villages. This video by Jesus for Asia Foreign Correspondent Jonathan Hill highlights why Travis is doing this work.
JFA Foreign Correspondents – The Hills
As Asia seems distant to most people in Christian countries, Jonathan and Hannah want to share the needs and experiences of missions through videos so that more can know what is happening and also see the needs that they can help to meet. While they would both say that Thailand is home rather than America, they live in Thailand also to make it easier/cheaper to travel to JFA projects. This fund goes to help make travel to the various JFA projects possible so that they can help keep us up to date with videos and pictures.
There are many needs on the border between Thailand and Burma – many internally displaced persons. The “Border Light” project, with Harvey and Brenda Steck, is working to alleviate these needs through humanitarian and Gospel projects.
