Bible Translation in Papua New Guinea, an orphanage for HIV positive children in Thailand and compassionate ministry among our Indigenous neighbours have something in common! They are all sponsored and promoted by our Sardis Community Church Missions Ministry Team. Add church planting in northern Thailand, and assisting girls in a Thai juvenile detention centre, for a global impact, these ministries all involve missionaries who are closely connected with our church and focus on those people who have the least opportunity to experience the love of Christ. Our church family members are continually encouraged and challenged to look beyond their own culture and comfort zone. Being part of Sardis Community Church means supporting and experiencing what God is doing around us and around the world!
Ricky and Karen Sanchez have been working in Thailand since 1993. Their hearts are for people to know Jesus and His great love for them. Church planting, an orphanage for HIV+ children, caring for women and children leaving the sex trade, Cambodian migrant ministries, eye glass clinics in rural villages, and Global Sports are some of the ministries they are a part of in SE Asia. They are grateful to our church for the 20+ years of support, prayer and teams we have sent them in partnership!
