In Touch Ministries makes every effort to use contributions made for a particular project, such as the distribution of Messengers, for its specified purposes. In the event a project becomes overfunded or its purposes frustrated due to circumstances beyond our control, this may no longer be wise or practical. In such circumstances, In Touch Ministries will use those donations elsewhere to fulfill its fundamental mission of “leading people worldwide into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ."

When it comes to religious freedom, Thailand is one of Southeast Asia’s most tolerant nations. Nevertheless, Christians represent slightly less than one percent of the population, leaving Thailand effectively unreached by the gospel.

Believers in Thailand long for effective tools to reach their nation for Christ. The In Touch Messenger Lab equips them with discipleship resources to overcome cultural, educational, and geographic hurdles. As they serve Christ within both urban and rural populations, they share the fragrance of knowing Him everywhere they go.

“Be steadfast,
immovable, always abounding
in the work of the Lord,
knowing that in the Lord
your labor is not in vain.”

— I Corinthians 15:58

Freedom for
the Prisoner

Once kept inside the walls of prison, Somwang Kongaew is continually working his way back inside for the sake of others.



A Persisting

At 14, he became a refugee. Yet he kept looking forward. Today, Saw Wado works to secure a better future for his people.

“The In Touch Messengers are now the basic need for those who hunger for God’s Word. As spiritual food, they are very powerful to change people’s lives.”

— Dr. Jariya Sornmayura, Voice of Peace

Because of you, Christians in Thailand are equipped with handheld discipleship devices that encourage their faith and empower their witness. With the truth planted in hearts, Christ is making salvation known to thousands. Pray with us as God moves.

What is the
Messenger Lab?

What began with a solar-powered audio player containing the Bible and Dr. Stanley’s messages is now much more than a device. It’s grown into a collective of thinkers and servants all over the world working tirelessly for the gospel. Wherever we go, we look for the right solution at the right time—whether it’s one of our proprietary devices or another tool—to make sure the message of salvation in Jesus Christ is accessible to those who have never heard.

A Messenger Lab device contains: the entire Bible, dozens of Dr. Stanley’s foundational sermons, the 30 Life Principles, and other material meant to explain salvation and develop mature believers. Available in 100+ languages.

A simpler version of our flagship device, the Freedom provides much-needed discipleship within the limited specifications of the prison system. This tool widely expands our ability to reach and teach hearts within the walls of correctional facilities.

  • Device is transparent to alleviate security concerns
  • For simplicity and wide acceptance, only basic features are included
  • Multiple languages can be loaded on one device

The Messenger is In Touch Ministries’ flagship solar-powered audio device. Since 2007, we’ve reached people who have limited access to electricity, internet, and broadcast media through this tool. Because it can feature multiple languages in one device, it’s capable of crossing borders and transcending barriers.

  • Solar-powered with a built-in flashlight and FM receiver
  • Pre-loaded with Scripture and messages from Dr. Stanley
  • Available in 100+ languages

When a village has a scarcity of electricity, there may not be enough light to read or study by, and getting together with believing friends might be impossible. The Torch, one of the more versatile of the Messenger Lab technologies, features a night-light, radio, and charging station. It’s made to bring people together.

  • Built-in lantern, radio, and flashlight
  • Loudspeaker for audiences up to 100 people
  • USB port for charging other mobile devices

Even in the most remote areas, many people carry a cellphone. The LightStream Pocket is designed to offer the gospel to people who don’t even know to look for it. The device detects the cellphone and notifies the owner that Bible resources are available for free download.

  • Portable content distribution system that creates its own Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Able to copy micro SD cards

Sometimes when entering customs, our Messenger Lab devices are met with scrutiny. So we’ve placed the same content found on our larger devices on a USB drive.

  • Small and easily shared from person to person
  • Compatible with nearly all computers
  • Easy to transport in bulk

Imagine not being able to safely carry a Bible or openly talk about the gospel. In places where this is a day-to-day reality, this tiny memory chip offers a way to listen to content surreptitiously through a cellphone.

  • Incredibly small and discreet
  • Fits nearly all cellphones and holds hundreds of audio files
  • Can be listened to individually or passed along to a new friend

Many countries don’t have accessible or affordable seminary training, but a tablet device provides a full library of resources for spiritual leaders. We provide tablets whenever In Touch Ministries representatives are on hand to perform Dr. Stanley’s Life Principles training.

  • Puts biblical training in the leaders’ hands
  • Loaded with Scripture and messages from Dr. Stanley, biblical dictionaries, encyclopedias, and more
  • Available in English and Spanish
