Live in Thailand where Steve is Assistant Director of Bangkok Bible Seminary (BBS) and teaches theology and missions. The church in Thailand is steadily growing but the percentage of Christians is still less than 1%. There are thousands of churches but many lack trained leaders. BBS provides Biblically based ministry training for both those who can study at the college and for those who study online. There are currently over 900 students enrolled. Steve and Flor have served evangelical churches in Thailand for over 40 years.
