In northeast Thailand, Pastor Suphon and Pastor Ying lead communities of believers who want to reach out to others in the Nong Khai province, which hugs the Mekong River along the border with Laos. These pastors and their churches are part of Mission Ventures Thailand who are planting churches all across Thailand and helping them to reach new areas. They are all very excited about the connections and open doors in Nong Khai.
