Moe and Git Montenegro
In 1991, I came to know Jesus through the Campus Outreach ministry the summer of my junior year. Throughout the rest of college, I learned more about Jesus and the Bible through discipleship groups and through church. My heart for overseas missions grew as I understood more of God’s heart to reach all people. I joined the Campus Outreach Thailand team in 1997.
I want to see God use us to reach and build Thai men and women who will one day have families who love and honor God and continue to labor for him.
Oraya (Aw) Kaewphanna
Aw came to know Jesus as a student at Khon Kaen University, where she studied Bio-Chemistry. After learning more and more about what God has done in saving her and affirming her in and through Jesus, she felt compelled to reach out to others. After praying, working, and waiting, God opened the opportunity for her to join the Campus Outreach team in Udon Thani, Thailand. Her primary role is to provide resourcing support, and secondarily, she will do campus ministry at Rajabhat and Sam Phao University.
Jakrawut (Wutt) Lueamnat
Wutt came to know Jesus while a student at Khon Kaen University where he studied Microbiology. He was discipled by one of the Thai staff and after graduation served with CO Khon Kaen as an intern. Wutt has enjoyed walking with the Lord. He had a growing desire to make his life count for something that would last forever. As God lead COKK to expand, this gave Wutt an opportunity to be part of CO in Udon Thani reaching students with the gospel of Jesus.

Wanwisa (Som) Khoomphol
My name is Som. I graduated from KhonKaen University with a Bachelor of Arts in French. I grew up in a buddhist family, going to the temple and making merit since I was young. I came to know the Lord in my 3rd year. I was discipled by CO staff and joined the projects and training events provided by CO. God has given me a desire to teach and be an influence for God in the lives of my Thai people. The CO THAI LEAD program gives me this opportunity.
I am Tyler Mobley, from Paragould, Arkansas. I graduated from Arkansas State University with a degree in Business Administration. In college, I developed a desire to share Christ. After graduation, I decided to go to Udon Thani, Thailand to raise up laborers who will worship Christ and who will go on to be husbands and fathers who love their families like Christ loves the church.
I grew up in a Thai-Buddhist family and lived in Thai-Buddhist culture until I was a freshman university student. I received Christ at a CO Christian camp where I saw my sinfulness and how I needed forgiveness. After graduating, I worked two years as an associate researcher at Khon Kaen University’s department of Pharmacy. I decided to join Campus Outreach Udon Thani because I want to see God bring His hope and build laborers among the students here in Thailand.
