Hello, I am Megan Vanderzanden. In the summer of 2022, I will be launched into full-time missionary work in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I will be joining Within Reach Global to share the Gospel among unreached people groups. I will be working as a team with the Thai Outreach Department to lead Bible studies, trips into surrounding villages & many other ministry ventures. In addition, I will be working alongside the admin team to recruit and plan Short Term Mission Teams coming to Thailand. Furthermore, I will be learning the Thai language. Studying Thai is imperative to my long-term success in Thailand & raising up fellow Thai people as Disciple’s of Christ.
I was raised in a family that placed an importance on serving other people. Today, the majority of my family is involved in varying levels of missions work. In November of 2021, I went to visit my dad and Connie in Thailand where they are missionaries. I thought I was going on a vacation, HA! As He always does, God knew exactly what He was doing. Within a matter of 3 weeks, something began to happen in my heart. God had placed a deep desire and longing to bring eternal hope to His children in Thailand. Since that point, God has sent numerous signs through varying circumstances that it is undeniably His will for me to return to Thailand.
I desire to be a vessel for God to use in whatever way He wants. This begins with listening & obeying as He reveals His plan. It is God’s heart and promise that every nation, tribe and tongue will praise His name! I have a passion for all to experience the redemptive power of God’s love and the depths of His mercy.
Thank you for prayerfully considering partnering with me as I share the love of God with His children. For more detailed information, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
