Our names are Andreas & Ruth Meier and we come from Switzerland and Germany. We have two boys: Timon and Nathanael. Andreas worked as a car mechanic and Ruth as a Primary school teacher. Ruth grew up as a missionary kid in Japan and Andreas worked on the mission ship Doulos (Operation Mobilisation) for two years. The thought of going back to Asia as missionaries was always on our minds, so Andreas went to a Bible school in Switzerland for five years. During that time we both knew that we wanted to serve God overseas. We decided to apply to OMF, because that was the organisation Ruth’s parents had worked with in Japan. We were open as to where God would lead us to serve Him. When OMF Thailand was the first to reply to our application, we knew that God was calling us here. We moved to Thailand in November 2013.
After finishing the first year of language studies in Lopburi, we moved to South Thailand. Right now we are involved in a church planting ministry in Nakhonsithammaraat.
