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 presently enrolled in language school learning the Thai language.
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 oldest daughter (Sarah) serves there as well. Lincoln Baptist Church is our sending church. My second oldest daughter (Rachel) is enrolled in Bible college in Longview, Texas.
Currently we are establishing a church in the village of Sam Yak Pa-La-U. (Pronounced Sam Yaek Paw Lah OO.) There is no church in that area and so there is a great opportunity for many people who have never heard the Gospel to be reached for Christ.
