Christie & Michael are living and working among the Central Thai people, one of the largest unreached people groups in the world. Michael, whose mom is Thai, disciples and trains Thai leaders in holistic, Kingdom-minded ministry. He primarily does this through his connections with City to City and IFES. He is currently pursuing an MDiv at Fuller through their online program. Christie uses her legal training to address justice issues. She primarily does this with Step Ahead, a local, Christian nonprofit that is working collaboratively with NGOs and the government to pursue better care options (family strengthening, foster care) through national policy change for at-risk children in Thailand. Christie and Michael also develop witnessing relationships with Thai Buddhists around them in their neighborhood, at their kids’ schools, and they are involved in a local Thai church.
