The Karen People

Along with the work among the Thai, WEC Thailand works with the S'gaw Karen minority. About 120,000 Karen people live in isolated villages in the mountains of Tak Province. Although they are animistic, the Karen are responsive to the gospel. Currently, there are 30 churches and groups.

In her book At the Scent of Water, published by CLC, Nancy Ashcraft tells the exciting story of the initial stages of this work.

  1. To bring the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the remaining unevangelized peoples with the utmost urgency.
  2. To plant churches with empowered leadership.
  3. To inspire, mobilize and train for mission.

"To see vibrant churches established in every sub-district within the five provinces where we work, and to see churches in Thailand mobilized for mission".
