GOOD NEWS TEAM THAILAND
Good News Ministries was started in 1978 by two World Outreach missionaries from New Zealand, Lorraine Dierck and Valerie Bateup. There are now 7 Thai Christians working in the Good News Ministries Team.
The Good News Team produces a childrens evangelistic booklet every year that is distributed to thousands of school children across Thailand. The magazine uses a cartoon format including stories relating to Thai children, Bible stories, puzzles, games, and a variety of articles. The emphasis has always been to bring a clear gospel message.
Up to 200,000 are printed and distributed each year depending on funds.
LOCATION – THAILAND
The team visits Thai state schools where they are able to present the gospel to the whole school. After these programs, each child is given a copy of one of these booklets.
Up to 10% of children then write for more information about Jesus. One average 5 – 10 children will read each magazine. We have not yet seen one magazine thrown away.
