泰國事工

Formerly known as Siam, Thailand is located in the heart of mainland Southeast Asia, with a population of about 70 million and its capital in Bangkok. The Thai people make up the majority of the population, accounting for 75%, while the Chinese account for 14%. Over 90% of Thai people practice Buddhism, which deeply influences their daily lives. Christianity has been present in Thailand for a long time, with the Portuguese mercenaries and priests bringing Christianity to Siam around 1550. Christianity, including Protestantism and Catholicism, has played an important role in Thailand’s modernization process, particularly in social and educational institutions such as orphanages, secondary schools, and universities. Christians make up 0.7% of Thailand’s population.
