Wichai & Wandee, of Chinese decent, were born in Thailand and grew up in Christian families in Bangkok. After earning his MBA in the Philippines, Wichai worked for many years in various businesses in Thailand, while also volunteering for Christian organizations such as the Thai Christian student movement, Christian schools, Youth for Christ, and OMF’s Manorom Christian Hospital. Wandee taught school for several years and then became a stay-at-home mother to their daughter, Warancha.
Feeling called to leave their professional career in order to take up a Christian service vocation, they moved to Vancouver in 2006 where Wichai earned his Masters of Christian Study at Regent College, graduating in 2008. During that time, they also responded to God’s call to join OMF in Canada and were accepted in July 2008. Wichai has been serving with OMF Canada since January 2010, mobilizing professionals to serve in China.
They are members of Grace Baptist Church, a Mandarin speaking church in Bangkok, and also active in the Fujian Evangelical Church in Richmond, BC. Wichai and Wandee served for 3 months (April to June 2013) at Dali University in Yunan, China. They were eventually sent out from OMF Canada in August 2013 to serve under OMF Thailand. Their daughter, Warancha, remains in Canada to finish university.
Present ministry: serving as a full-time lecturer at Sripatum University in Bangkok.
