In this groundbreaking new series from Adventist Mission, follow church planter, Pastor Doug Venn, as he travels across Bangkok by water taxi, motorcycle taxi, tuk tuk, and skytrain, visiting church plants and meeting residents. You'll share the joy of being invited by leaders of one community to build a church, and then experience something mission stories have rarely shown--the pain of having to turn down such a amazing request. You’ll go with him to slums and shopping malls, as he looks for ways to share the Gospel in a nation that is only about 1% Christian.
