Missionaries to Thailand: Robert & Kay Holcomb
Thailand is often called the 'Land of Smiles'. Yet, behind those smiles, you will find 65 million lives consumed by spiritual darkness, political unrest, and blatant sexual immorality. Into this darkness, God has called Robert and Kay Holcomb to labor with other missionaries sent from the International Mission Board (IMB) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).
Robert and Kay Holcomb live in Bangkok. They serve as church planters, working primarily in outlying villages, seeking to establish relationships with Thai Buddhists. Their goal is to start new house churches in the countryside and provide discipleship for these new believers.
Pray for Robert and Kay as they seek to overcome the challenges of language and culture. The task is humanly impossible, but as Jeremiah 32:17 states, "Nothing is too hard for God."
