Siam: After the Year in Bangkok They Went to Nakhon Si


The Siamese in Bangkok had tried to keep the Landons there but other missionaries were resentful of Kenneth's ability with the local language and culture. The mission sent him to one of the worst fields in Nakhon, on the east coast. This turned out to be a blessing and opened incredible opportunities for Kenneth to work with a large population of Chinese in that area, which he could not do in Bangkok.
