Southeast Asia is one of the most diverse areas in the Asia Pacific Region. From the ultra-modern city of Bangkok, Thailand, to the country of Cambodia where the ravages of genocide still haunt almost every aspect culture, the people of SE Asia live in a wide variety of economic and social circles. But in the midst of this diversity, Buddhism, the dominant religion, is one thing that unites the countries of SE Asia. The culture of Buddhism is highly integrated into all aspects of society, political, social, and economic and it is this religious culture that presents the greatest challenge to the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
Yet we believe God is working even amid these circumstances. He has a plan for restoration, and Nazarene Missions is a part of that plan! Our goal is to make Christlike disciples (Matthew 28:18-20) and to follow the example of our Good Shepherd (John 10:11-15) by sacrificing themselves for the Lost.
Christians here are encouraged to view the world as John Wesley did when he said, “I look upon all the world as my parish”, and to plant a community of believers wherever they are.
Thank you for partnering with Nazarene Missions and the Southeast Asia Field. Together we will see God’s Kingdom come in SE Asia!
Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain.
Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.
Psalm 127:1 (NIV)
