adjunct faculty of mission at seminaries in both East and West I trained prospective missionaries to Asia.During decades of field service in Thailand, I also taught scores of lay people to serve as home missionaries. Furthermore, several Thai from our pioneer area later ministered across cultures as long- term career missionaries to various Buddhist peoples. For example, in 2015, in Southeast Asia I met a young Singaporean missionary. His Thai wife came from the area where our family worked. In the early 1970s during virgin work in one rural region a small breakthrough under God’s Holy Spirit began. The rst churches were planted in several townships. In one nearby village lived Khun Y and his wife. Both soon believed. I taught new believers to pray and witness to their relatives and friends. Y went down to the border of the province and shared the Gospel with his sister’s family. She and her daughter C believed. In 1997 C became a missionary working with Buddhist Shan. Later, C‘s niece K was called to missions and went to Singapore for Bible training. There she met her husband noted above. Now this Asian couple reaches Northern Thai (Khon Muang)with the gospel in this 21st Century. Y’s vibrant rst generation lay believer’s in uence produced two generations for missions. The more dynamic church planting movements are the more likely Asian missionaries will arise.Lay leaders can make a significant impact. Training them makes the difference.
