Our house in Phrom Khiri is near the district office, and recently they held an installation service for a new Buddha statue/idol placed in the front (it is the black statue in the photo).

Emanuel and Barbara Zwygart with Janina, Nathanael and Lisa serve the Lord in Thailand since 2001. Emanuel worked as a draughtsman in an architecture office. Barbara was a commercial employee in a company. Their home is Switzerland.
It was during a visit in Thailand in 1993, when the Lord burdened Emanuel to pray for this nation. It was years later when God called him to go and make disciples in this nation. It was different for Barbara. God called her to prepare herself for full time ministry. But it was during Bible College when the Lord gave her a vision to serve HIM on the mission field.
They both graduated from the Theological Seminary St. Chrischona, Basel. This is where they met. They both served in a church in Switzerland before they got married in 1999.
It has been a privilege to partner with Thai Christians in three different church plants in Phitsanulok and Nakhon Sawan province over the past years. And we long to see more churches being established in this whole area in reaching out to the Thais as well as training the “Timothies” who can spread the Good News beyond this region. We pray for biblical churches to be established that will reproduce and multiply. More churches means more people will have an opportunity to hear the Gospel and see the power of God’s saving grace in the lives that are being changed.
Since 2016, we are leading the OMF Central Thailand team. In Central Thailand we see the many opportunities and we pray for more people to join God’s work to build HIS kingdom in the kingdom of Thailand.
Are you willing to invest your life for the millions of Central Thais still without Christ? Would you like to partner with Thai Christians to plant new churches? Interested? Please, contact us at Emanuel.Zwygart@omfmail.com
