“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded of you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20
Welcome to our Missions page.
As part of the heart of Richmond New Life we love to sow into missionaries all around the world. Here is a sneak peak at who we support.
Max & Dorothy Chisman
Lorraine served in Thailand for 40 years from 1973 - 2013. She pioneered several ministries including the Good News Team, the Food of Life Curriculum, Muangtong Church and the Bangkok Mission Centre.
Lorraine went to Thailand with the vision that every Thai child must have the opportunity to hear the good news of salvation through Jesus, and to respond to Him. She began to take a small group of young Thai believers into Buddhist schools to run a one-hour programme of music, story, and a very popular puppet show. This outreach grew into the Good News team which began to write evangelistic materials until eventually more than 100,000 Thai children and youth were studying a series of Bible correspondence courses.
When thousands of children began putting their faith in Christ, Lorraine became aware that most of them lived in towns and villages with no church. After starting Muangtong Church in Bangkok, Lorraine’s work became focused on developing and training leaders to initiate church-planting movements among Buddhist people groups.
A self-confessed “life-long learner”, Lorraine has completed Masters degrees in Missiology, Religious Education and Theology, followed by a Doctor of Missiology degree from Biola University. After her studies, Lorraine led a small team of World Outreach mission partners who designed the six-week Nations course covering subjects like effective language learning, culture change, cross-cultural church-planting, animism, signs and wonders, world religions, cross-cultural leadership, interpersonal relationships and many more.
Lorraine now lives in New Zealand where she continues to mentor her Thai leaders as they mobilize and assist the Thai church to plant new churches in unreached areas of Thailand.
