About Barry and Shelly Dawson - Serving in Bankok, Thailand: As a pastor of congregations in five different countries, Barry came to appreciate diverse cultures and people. Yet he also learned that every person shares a common yearning for the hope God offers humankind. “Every day throughout the world.” he says, “from the moment the first rays of sunlight peek above the horizon until the darkness of night descends, more than 7 billion people on earth hunger for hope.” Hope, he notes, is an emphasis of the gospel. He and Shelly draw strength from the Apostle Paul’s words of hope in Romans 15:13: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
