In 1927, the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism in the Orient (ABEO), the former name of Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE) was organized in the Philippines to give utmost emphasis to the evangelistic outreach. Thirty years later, the Philippines Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (PABWE) was born showing the Filipino Christian’s response to the need of reaching other peoples in other countries. Thus, in 1964, Thailand was the first nation to receive the efforts of PABWE’s first missionaries.

By the end of 2017, a couple applied for Papua New Guinea and are currently on deputation. This year 2019, 1 single lady answered the call for more laborers to Cambodia.
