We are Sijmen and Annelies and were introduced to church planting in Thailand while home schooling mission kids. Our eyes were opened for the huge amount of work that needed to be done to share the gospel with so many unreached people. Besides our regular received education as primary school teacher and social financial planner we decided to study at Redcliffe Bible college for one year to be better equipped for this task.
Together with our children Daniel (2008), Benj (2011) and Marie (2014) we live in a small town, Manchakhiri. By God’s grace we were able to open a church, starting very small with 4 church members. God has been faithful and bringing more people towards Him. We are looking forward to Gods plans being fulfilled further more in Isaan.
Update: The den Hartogs have moved to Udon Thani since June 2020, to start a ministry there.
