Title

Siam: Kenneth on a Summary of Their Work in Thailand

Description

Kenneth sums up his work in Thailand. During his years there, he started five or six Chinese schools and churches. He preached and evangelized in all the major population centers of his parish, and many small villages. He published a monthly journal in both Siamese and Chinese. He had a Presbyterian church in Trang, with its own local pastor. Kenneth and Margaret helped train and educate two young people from scratch who could study at the theological seminary up at McCormick in Chiang Mai and then come and work on the peninsula. He also visited individual homes and villages, and sent hundred of pastoral letters.
