Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA)

The Christian and Missionary Alliance is a missionary movement founded in 1886.  Currently we have about 700 missionaries serving in 70 countries around the world.  After more than 120 years of existence the Alliance worldwide now consists of more than 20,000 local churches in 96 countries.  The Christian and Missionary Alliance first entered Thailand in 1929 with 2 main focuses of ministry – church planting and leadership development.  C&MA Missionaries in Thailand come from C&MA churches in the US, Canada, Philippines, Holland, Korea, Hong Kong and Australia.

Ministry Overview

Debbie is involved in a lay leadership program that trains local pastors to raise up lay leaders in their churches to work with them in ministry.  She works with about 10 churches located throughout the northeast part of the country and is helping to begin this ministry in a neighboring country.  Debbie also works with short term mission teams with a 2 fold purpose – 1) open their eyes to the spiritual needs in Thailand and 2) involved them with ministry needs of the local churches involved with the lay leadership program.

Prayer Requests

Debbie will return to the states for a one year home assignment in July 2018.  Pray for wisdom in turning over her responsibilities to others to carry on in her absence. 

In preparation for home assignment Debbie will have to pack her belongings to put in storage and sell her car.  She will then need to find a place to live in the Salem area.

When she returns to Thailand in July 2019, Debbie will be purchasing a new vehicle.  Funds are being raised through her Vehicle Account which can be found in the C&MA website – www.cmalliance.org
