Pastor Kungwal Pai has in the past pastored churches in different locations across Thailand and undertaken Biblical studies in the Philippines. However, he felt God was calling him to settle in one location and plant a sustainable self-funded church. With his father (also a pastor) and extended family, purchased a parcel of farmland in Nakhon Ratchasima Province (North-Eastern Thailand) and built a home with a special large room where church services could be held. They also bought some milking cows to help them raise income to fund the church plant.
Having never farmed before Pastor Kungwal Pai simply googled how to do it and taught himself how to develop a dairy farm. They are becoming established now with a home built and 7 milk producing cows, which will soon be increased to 9. Pastor Kungwal Pai is now holding church services in the large room they dedicated for this purpose and with his family is reaching out to the farming families surrounding them. Their goal was for them to be “Planted” in the community and establish a sustainable church planting model that could be duplicated in other locations. He explained how he plans to slowly increase his heard to increase his milk production which he sells to a local Milk Products company.
