Mark and Ngoc

Serving in Indochina

Ngoc and Mark began serving in Indochina at the beginning of 2020. In 2021 they were blessed with the birth of their daughter Maia.

Although they are native to the country, they spent most of their adult years growing up in other countries. Ngoc was raised in a Buddhist family and left Indochina as a refugee to the US, where she came to faith in Jesus through a small house church in Houston. Mark grew up in a culturally Catholic family, and came to know Jesus through Peter ‘Hoa’ Stone, after he moved to Sydney.

The couple met in Indochina in 2016 on a short-term mission trip with Peter, who led a local organisation. In 2021 Peter passed away, so Mark and Ngoc decided to relocate and serve alongside Peter’s wife, Hien. The organisation exists to equip, empower and enable marginalised young Indochinese people with physical disabilities, as well as disadvantaged children, to live independently and be self sustaining.

God has established a new faith community in their local area. Please pray for the Indochinese people to follow Jesus in their own distinctive ways. Please also pray for Mark and Ngoc as they seek to expand and offer more services to care for their communities and their needs, whilst looking after their own family.

Through their day-to-day life, Jean-Claude and Joyce are engaging with people wholistically, responding to their spiritual and physical needs.

Jean-Claude and Joyce share a passionate love for God and people and desire to see the Yawo follow Jesus within their cultural context. They are building relationships with their Yawo neighbours and investing in their culture and language learning with a local language nurturer so they can effectively communicate with their Yawo friends.

They are grateful for the prayers and financial support they receive as they actively seek to build meaningful relationships amongst the Yawo and see communities transformed as they follow Jesus in ways that make sense to them.
