Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

- Matthew 19:14

Welcome to the Good News Team

Good News Ministries was started in 1978 by two World Outreach missionaries from New Zealand, Lorraine Dierck and Valerie Bateup. There are now 10 Thai Christians working in the Good News Ministries Team.

Our Vision

20 million Thai children and youth have not yet heard a meaningful presentation of the gospel. 94% are Buddhist and 4% are from other religious backgrounds. Less than 1% of these young people know Christ as their Savior.

Thai youth are the key to the future of the church in Thailand. Yet, at the same time, thousands of them are being exploited and abused. For centuries, children have been regarded as merely commodities to be used for the best advantage of the extended family or village. They desperately need to hear that God loves them and can give them a new life in Jesus Christ.
