Ms. Kanda Teabruttana

The Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) staff highlighted in this post is Ms. Kanda Teabruttana. Kanda, whose nickname is Jeab, is single and has been working with LHMT taking care of the LHMT Christian bookstore since May 2013.

Born into a Buddhist family, Jeab first heard about God when she was 10 years old. When she was 15 years old some friends threatened to ask an evil spirit to go into Jeab, if Jeab didn’t play aouija board with them.  Jeab felt afraid and decided to pray to God that night.  She thought that if God is real, He could help her.  In the morning she didn’t feel afraid, so she thought that God must be real.

Sometime later at a church camp Jeab was riding in a small boat with 7 friends that capsized. She felt like she was going to drown.  When she called to God for help, she came up to the surface.  Since that time she has believed in God.

Jeab earned a Bachelor of Fine and Applied Arts degree with an emphasis in dance from the Faculty of Education at Bansomdejchaopraya Rajabhat University. Before joining LHMT she worked as a teacher of Thai music and dance for 12 years at Mahachai Christian Wittaya School.

In her free time Jeab enjoys doing Thai dance and Thai music and helps with Bible studies at her church.

Jeab’s father, older brother and younger sister also are Christians. Her mother is interested in learning about Christianity, but continues to follow Buddhist beliefs.
