A Window – Weekly Inspiring Image

There is a saying in Thailand: To be Thai is to be Buddhist. Buddhism is part of the national identity. The majority of Thai’s – over 94% of the population – are devout Buddhists performing prayers and other ceremonies up to 50 times each day. Thai Buddhists, if they’ve ever met a Christian, tend of think of them as lazy since Christians only go to church once a week! Bringing the Good News to all the language communities in Thailand is a unique challenge which requires thoughtful contextualization. The Bible is available in all four major Thai dialects, work is in progress in another 27 languages and at least 10 languages still have a definite need for a translation project. Please pray for the church in Thailand.
