Northern Thais are only 0.4% Christian
Bring Jesus To Northern Thailand
Ten years ago, the Lord led UB Global on a journey to share Jesus with the Northern Thai people group. These beautiful people live throughout the north and central parts of Thailand and are currently only 0.4% Christian. In 2019 the Good Soil Community Center (GSCC) was established in a Northern Thai neighborhood to offer classes in the community. Over time, our teams have gained much favor with their Buddhist neighbors through the GSCC and regularly visiting homes. Passionate short-term teams have been an important part of our growth. These teams have blessed the community in tangible ways and provided inroads for our long-term missionaries to develop strong ongoing relationships. We are excited to offer three short-term opportunities for travel in 2023.
Thinking About Joining Us?
Here Are A Few Things To Consider
Cost: each trip will cost around $2,800-$2,900 per person; although exact prices will vary according to airfare for that trip. If you'd like, UB Global can provide guidance on raising funds for your trip. Other costs you may need to consider include obtaining a passport; luggage and travel items; meals in airports; lunches, drinks, and desserts while in Thailand; and personal gifts and keepsakes.
Lodging: we will stay in a hotel near our neighborhood community center. You can expect an experience similar to a clean & safe 2-star hotel. Individuals may reduce the trip price by rooming with another person of the same gender.
The July 16-27 trip is sponsored by Emmanuel Community Church. First, professionals, PT and OT college students, and experienced volunteers are sought on this trip to minister to people with disabilities. Second, we will offer an English Camp at the Good Soil Community Center. We are seeking to organize a team of 14 individuals of varying backgrounds and ages, with 6-8 being specifically geared to minister to people of disabilities. Courtney Waterman will organize this trip, and Karena Schroeder will lead the process of establishing a school program for those with special needs.

A missionary is one who leaves their family for a short time, so other families can live together forever when they accept the Good News of Jesus!
