Steve and Bethany (Tobin) Horst (Anjali, Emmanuel, Tierzah)
Serving in: Bangkok, Thailand
Program name: Long-term service
- Serving since:
Steve and Bethany are working with the Life Enrichment Church – a cluster of locally led village-based worshipping groups in the far southeast corner of Thailand’s rural rice farming region of “Isaan.”
After four years of service in Bangkok, during which time they prioritized relationships with Isaan persons, especially those with connections to the Life Enrichment Church, the Horsts are now poised and eager to relate more closely to Isaan people in their home culture. The Life Enrichment Church has invited the Horsts to move to the town of Nam Yuen in order to help establish worshipping groups in this district where there is little to no Christian witness. They will work alongside a small and young team of LEC believers who have likewise moved to Nam Yuen for evangelism and church planting.
The Horsts are also advising VMMissions in future ministry in Bangkok as their relational capital there remains strong.
