In a whirlwind ministry trip to Thailand in April, Glenvale Adventist Pastor Casey Wolverton faced a new challenge: Preaching a about Jesus to an audience of university students, the majority of who were Buddhist.

While Asia-Pacific International University was in it’s summer session, Ps. Wolverton was invited to share three messages of a spiritual nature to the 600 plus students and staff.

Although the University is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist denomination, the students come from a wide mix of faith traditions, the majority of which are Buddhist.

“Speaking about Christ to those who don’t know much about him was challenging, all the more so because I had to do it through a translator,” said Ps. Wolverton. “But I was very grateful for the prayer support from so many back in Toowoomba. I could see the Holy Spirit at work.

Dr. Loren G. Agrey, President of AIU was pleased with the series and it’s impact on his students.

“We appreciate Pastor Wolverton taking the time to come to Thailand and making the case for Christ to those of our students who don’t know him yet.”
