Serving in South East Asia

Mike has been serving in South East Asia since July 2021. His first year was spent adapting and learning to adjust to life in the small, yet fast-developing regional city he now calls home.

As he grew in his ability to have meaningful conversations using the national language of the B.I. people, Mike developed a small network of key relationships. These people have since become Mike’s close friends, and he genuinely enjoys hanging out with them!

In 2023 Mike began working as an English teacher at the Education Foundation. This role not only allows him to help the local people develop their English language skills, but is also necessary for him to have a reason to stay long-term in South East Asia.

Some of Mike’s local friends also work at the language centre, which gives him the opportunity to live out Kingdom values in front of them. One of Mike’s goals is to develop deep trust and respect with his friends at the language centre, so that he might have fruitful conversations about the Kingdom with them too.

As Mike looks to the future, he hopes to deepen his relationships with the B.I. people even further. This will involve learning the heart language of the B.I. people, which will enable Mike to have deeper conversations with his local friends.

Mike is also committed to further deepening his relationship with Jesus. His relationship with God is the foundation of all he does in South East Asia. Please pray with Mike to see vibrant faith communities following Jesus in their own distinctive ways in South East Asia.

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.
