The Trelogans went to Thailand in 1975 with two children where they spent their first term assisting Rowland Bell follow up interested patients and relatives who had heard the Gospel at Manorom Christian Hospital. As well as providing a part-time veterinary service, they were able to establish six new Christian groups in the surrounding villages with the help of medical workers and Thai elders from Manorom church.
In 1980 they moved up river to Phayuha, the next town, where they gathered three of these groups into one to form a church under their house and, with the help of Manorom elders, they were able to hand over a church of 20 baptized believers with their own rented property to the care of five Thai elders in 1989.
Since then they have been working with lay leaders in 15 churches in Uthai province, developing an indigenous network of rural churches within the Associated Churches of Thailand.
They now have five children (two of whom live in Asia) and 9 grandchildren.
Glasgow University graduates in veterinary medicine and zoology, respectively, Bible Training Institute Glasgow graduates (two and one-year certificates, respectively).
