The Launius’ Story
Zack worked alongside Earthtones for many years providing sprinkler installation and repair. Now a portion of all profit from his clients will go directly to his ministry.
While completing a three-month internship in the Philippines, the Lord sovereignly and mercifully stirred Zack and Alex Launius’ hearts for Thailand. The Launius’ are eager and humbled to play a part in God's beautiful plan of redemption for His sons and daughters in Asia and throughout the world.
The Launius’ live in Chiang Rai, Thailand, serving with Go To Nations. With a background in irrigation and a love for teaching the Word, Zack works on water projects such as aquaponics systems and rainwater catchments. He also assists in the training of leaders and pastors through a network of Bible schools called Calvary Bible Institute. Alex volunteers in women’s ministry and cares for their two daughters, Olivia and Eden.
Thailand is roughly the size of France and is the 20th most populous country in the world. Recent industrialization has led to strong exports—textiles, shrimp, sugar, rubber, jewelry and electronics. Thailand is also the world’s largest exporter of rice. Tourism is a major aspect of the economy; sadly, prevalent depravity also contributes to the economy, particularly in the sex trade and drug trafficking.
