CIRCLED IN RED is a Mong Njua animal manger stall that we stayed in, for a week or so, in the late 1970’s. It had half of the roof blown away. This was our first Mission home in Ban Na Pa Paek Thailand. It looked the same as the one pictured above.

We were the first Protestant Christian Missionaries to this remote Himalayan village. These MongNjua had never heard the name of Jesus. We trekked for 2 days to get up to this mountain village.
Avoiding several near death accidents. Struggling in our always upward climb into this communist, bandit riddled area, of the famed “Golden Triangle Heroin Production Region.”
Nestled as a saddle between two mountainous tops. A region between the borders of Thailand, Burma ( Myanmar) and Laos.
This very village was the centered hub, where the real heroin cultivators of the Poppy Plant lived, which are the MongNjua. (Hmong)
My former wife and I, and 7 month old baby girl Naomi, lived here for our first week, in a broken down manger, a animal stall.

We had used a one man Pup Tent, that was sent to us from the U.S., and delivered miraculously, within 10 days. Delivered by a villager from the town of Mae Hongson, the city in the valley below. We had no food, money, no church backing, and did not speak any foreign languages.

I began to write these strange 7(seven) tones word sounds used in speaking this language.


In this small village was a one room Border Thailand School, one of the Thai teachers there spoke English a Mr. Sarine. He became our translator. God is faithful!

We had no material things, (food, clothing, medical, dental, schooling, american support money, nothing!) to entice these third world mountain dwellers to become Christians.

All we had to offer was the glorious “Gospel of Jesus Christ”, saying to these people as Peter and John said,

“Gold and silver we have not…in the name of Jesus rise and walk,” and in our case, to the Mong, to be free of the demonic evil demons who have convinced you that you are it’s slaves.

“Arise in the ‘Name of Jesus’ and be Free!”

We had nothing, just believing and thanking God for finally delivering to us what He had quicken to my heart in the early 1970’s, in my small hometown of Saint Charles Missouri, U.S.

It was there, that my former wife and I, made our decision to commit our lives to the sharing of the Gospel of Salvation, as found within the Protestant Christian Bible, and more particular, to live only by the Commands and Teachings written in the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament.

Jesus says to all who are His followers, not to a few as it is today, but for ALL,

“To go and teach and be my spokesman to the WORLD!


If you don’t offer your life, as a follower and a doer of Jesus’, the Apostles, and the Evangelists teachings and commands, that are found only within the Protestant Christian Bible, and more particular, those of the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament, which are the ONLY ones to be obeyed by today’s Christians.

If you, the person reading this, who believe they are a Christian, if you don’t submit your life to Jesus, and to willingly, and loving-ling go forth and share the glorious Gospel of Salvation, then you are showing


That you are ashamed, and afraid to trust Jesus, thereby YOUR OWN WILLFUL CHOICE you disown Jesus as your Lord and Savior!

ALL of YOU, the RELIGIONISTS, the supposed Christians, belonging to whatever Protestant Denomination will then become the spiritually lost!

 Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23 KJV – 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

 What is the Will of the Father?

What does God Desire above all else, for His Followers to do?

Matthew 28:19 KJV – (19) Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:


In prayer, in Saint Charles Missouri. God spoke to my heart to Go to this particular MongNjua village in the Himalayans.

Go to this place, northwest of Mae Hongson Thailand. I had never been to Thailand, this place was not on any map at that time.

God’s word came to us in Saint Charles Missouri, after we decided to be full time Protestant Christian Missionaries for God.
