A country with a 93.6% Buddhist population, Thailand's population is only 1.2% Christian. Theravada Buddhism is an atheistic religion, one in which the self is relied upon. They are lost, desperate to find happiness. Prostitution circles are commonplace, and they are even regulated by the government. If only they knew that the hole they were trying to fill can only be filled by Christ!
But you have an opportunity to go with Crossroads Missions to tell them of the good news! We partner with a Christian English school that has students of all faiths - Buddhist, Islam, etc., and we get to share the love of Jesus with them because we are able to teach them English! It is such a rare opportunity to get to reach children of different faiths in this way. You can be one of the first people to ever introduce a student to Jesus!
WE WILL TEACH ENGLISH
THE PEOPLE OF THAILAND ARE VERY EAGER TO KNOW ENGLISH, SO YOU GET TO REACH STUDENTS BY HELPING THEM learn!
YOU'll get to teach them some common english phrases, as well as learn some thai ones yourself!
WE WILL SHARE THE GOSPEL
THROUGH TEACHING THE STUDENTS AT THESE VARIOUS SCHOOLS ENGLISH, YOU WILL ALSO BE SHARING THE GOSPEL WITH THEM THROUGH STORIES, GAMES, CRAFTS, AND MUSIC.
YOU WILL GET TO SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY WITH COLLEGE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS THAT ARE EAGER FOR A GOD TO PUT THEIR HOPE IN.
