The Power of Partnership

Wednesday 22 Apr

Scott Pilgrim shares a story of hope from Thailand, May Mission Month update, staffing news and more...

People have always been at the heart of Global Interaction story. People like Mae Khui who lives in rural Thailand and serves as a leader in her faith community, actively sharing the good news of Jesus and helping others come together to follow and worship Jesus in their own distinctive ways. Mae Khui came to faith after engaging with Global Interaction intercultural workers Muana and Villy and hearing about Jesus in a way that made sense to her.
I love this story as it highlights the power of partnership, our distinct missiology and how God is at work through our mission family changing one life at a time.
As we pursue our vision, I am excited by some new appointments to our Global Interaction team.

New Victorian/Tasmanian State Director
It has been great to have Geoff Maddock join our team this month as our Victoria-Tasmania State Director. Geoff is a mission practitioner with extensive experience in both urban and global mission contexts. He is also passionate about journeying with Australian churches and exploring the ways in which partnership with global mission can grow the effectiveness of mission within local communities. Geoff has been serving on the Mission Catalyst Team at the Baptist Union of Victoria and he brings to his new role strong relationships with pastors and churches across the State.  Please join me in praying for Geoff as he settles into his new role.

Global Consultant
A key aspect of our missiological approach is our commitment to culture and language in the places we serve and so it’s great to report that Caz from our SEA team has been appointed as a new Global Consultant. Caz has significant experience and great expertise in culture and language [CAL] and we look forward to leadership she will bring in the CAL space, particularly as we develop innovative CAL approaches in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns. Caz will work PT in this role while continuing with many of her existing responsibilities on the SEA team. Please join me in praying for Caz in this vital role.

May Mission Month
As we approach May Mission Month 2020, we are so thankful for your ongoing support and partnership. We can only do what we do, touching lives like that of Mae Khui, because we are all in this mission together. You can find out more about May Mission Month and how you and your church can engage with us here. More than ever, we will value you sticking with us in these unprecedented times.
I will be very pleased to hear from you personally with any questions, suggestions, ideas you may want to share with me,

Take care.

Serving Jesus together
