Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.

- 1 Peter 4:10

Valerie Bateup

Valerie Bateup has been sharing Christ with Thai young people for over 30 years, through outreaches into local schools, and through literature. She developed the Team's literature program, which includes evangelistic, cartoon booklets and also a series of Bible lessons by correspondence. She works with others on the Team who enjoy teaching through literature, as they continue to develop further lessons in the correspondence program, and produce yearly cartoon booklets for distribution in Thai schools. She now co-ordinates the Thai leadership group within the Good News Team.

Valerie enjoys teaching children, and also teaching at the Bible College, so that Thais can grow in their understanding of Christ and His ways. Through extension programs, she has also completed a Master of Religious Education degree and a Master of Theological Studies. She is currently doing research towards the future development of the Good News Team as part of a Doctorate in Missiology from Biola University.
