Casey & Piyarat wright
Casey and Piyarat grew up literally worlds apart; Casey in a rural Ohio farming community and Piyarat in a rural farming village in Thailand. Despite the distance, God brought them together to serve in ministry in the same city in northern Thailand in 2005. In 2007 they got married and began ministry among the unreached Isan people of northeast Thailand where Piyarat grew up. In 2011 they decided it was time to return to the U.S. for a season to pay off their school loans as a means to provide a strong foundation for future ministry in Thailand. In 2015 they began preparing to return to Thailand with their 3 children Psalm, Dylan, and Tai.
They will continue ministering to the least reached people of northeast Thailand by partnering with The Light Center, a crisis pregnancy center and maternity home representing a region of 23 million people in Ubon Ratchathani. This year around 33,000 teenagers will give birth in northeast Thailand and 3x as many will get an abortion. The Light Center’s mission is to give hope to young women in crisis pregnancy situations in Northeast Thailand by providing guidance and counsel within a Gospel-centered community of trust. Casey and Piyarat will be joining an established team at The Light Center and helping provide a wide variety of leadership roles.
