Family Thailand Picture May 3 2020.jpg

We are the Todd Painter family missionaries to Thailand. I and my wife (Tammy) along with my two youngest daughters (Rebekah and Debbie) have been serving on the field in Prachuab Khiri Khan, Thailand since January 2020 after completing two years of deputation. We are enrolled in language school learning the Thai language and assisting the ministries of the International Baptist Church that is in the town nearby. 

Prior to deputation I planted the Lincoln Baptist Church in Lincoln, Nebraska in 2002 and was the pastor until we started deputation. My son (Jonathan) is currently the pastor there and my two oldest daughters (Sarah and Rachel) serve there as well. Lincoln Baptist Church is our sending church. 

Currently we are working with an orphanage about an hour and twenty minutes from where we live where we are teaching the Bible and English to those living there. Through this avenue we are working toward establishing a New Testament church in the village nearby and reaching out into the community around. There is no church in that area and so there is a great opportunity to establish something there where many can be reached for Christ.
