BRYAN AND ANGEL RIES

THAILAND


"We will start off our first term on the field by taking the time to enroll in full-time language school.  Thai has five tones. Learning a new script also presents a challenge, but most learners find it easier than they expect. Ultimately, the purpose for missionary work is the fulfillment of the Great Commission to go and teach all nations, baptize them, and teach them all things. Though providing food, medical care or meeting any other need is a good thing, they are purposeless if not paired with the priority of sharing salvation through Christ alone with a lost person. Our strategy is to personally witness to people and help those people develop a passion to reach their own with the gospel."
