Thailand enjoys vast expanses of well-watered land and recent industrialized growth. Textiles, shrimp, and rubber are the mainstays. It is also the world’s largest exporter of rice.
The Church has been growing modestly in recent years with Christians comprising just 1% of the population. However, indigenous church leaders are rising up across Thailand to help spread the Gospel. Over 65% of Thai Christians are first-generation believers. To date, over 66 million people have still never heard the Gospel, hailing from 82 different people groups.
