Angel is originally from Pattani, South Thailand, a majority Muslim area. Her mother and father were Buddhist, but her mother came to faith through OMF missionaries and Angel came to faith as well, getting baptized at age 12. When she went to university near Bangkok, studying Engineering Business, she got involved with Campus Crusade. The experience of seeing a person come to faith in Christ after she had shared gave her such joy that she decided she wanted to do this more, and decided to spend the first year after graduation in mission service. As she prayed, she felt God leading her to serve with the OMF team in Nakhon Si Thammarat. One year became 2, she got married to Steve, and is now serving long term.
Steve has lived both in eastern and western Canada, and is presently based in Vancouver when not in Thailand. He enjoys sports, running, the outdoors as well as music. He felt drawn to missions since soon after coming to faith at age 18 and found out about OMF when studying Bible at Capernwray Bible School in BC. After doing his B.Sc in Biology at Trinity Western University and working in Landscaping/gardening for a few years, he felt the call to church plant in Thailand with OMF, first coming short term in 2011 and then long-term November of 2015. He has been church planting in Phrom Khiri, located in Nakhon Si Thammarat province in South Thailand, since September, 2016 and Angel is now serving with him there since their marriage in August, 2018.
