After serving as Associate Pastor for almost 10 years, Duane and Kathy have ministered in Southeast Asia since 1997 in a variety of different ministries. Our goal was to live in Thailand and go into restricted countries. During our first term, our objective was two-fold: 1) to learn the Thai language and 2) learn the Asian culture. We feel that we have come a long way in accomplishing these two objectives. While in the process of accomplishing these objectives we also wanted to make some significant steps in setting up ministry opportunities for the future. For example, first, we have already established relational ties with the Thai people and other nationals in SE Asia and, second, training material is being translated. We feel we have done our homework and now it is time to go back and do the job.
