are third generation missionaries based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Joni’s grandparents, J. Russell and Gertrude Morse, brought the gospel into northern Burma and led many to the Lord. Joni married Nangsar, who is from the Rawang tribe and together they’ve expanded the impact of their family’s work—Establishing Churches, Developing Communities, Empowering People and Nurturing Life. They are currently working to build a sustainable church planting movement that will positively impact the lives of people for generations to come across much of the territories of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos by weaving together all four of the core mission priorities into one comprehensive ministry initiative.

We believe that God can use the stories and testimonies of these individuals to influence many for good! We are encouraged to see this happening!”
