CMS MISSION PARTNERS
SLOVENIA: KINGSLEY & RONNIE BOX
Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, has a population of around 300,000. Like Slovenia generally, it suffers from a critical lack of faithful gospel witness. Evangelical believers are a tiny minority (0.04%). Living in Ljubljana, Kingsley is the Assistant Minister to Peter Novak in the REC, focusing on youth. Kingsley and Veronica serve at church, and seek to evangelise Slovenes.
Karen grew up in Engadine and has been faithfully serving in Japan for over 20 years. In 2018, Karen will begin a Japanese ministry in Dubai.
JORDAN: MAL & CHARISSA FORREST
Amman is the capital of Jordan, which is bounded by Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, the West Bank and Israel. Malcolm & Charissa serve in one of the largest churches by membership in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, and a strategic location for evangelical ministry, both nationally and internationally. The Forrests pray that as people move on, God will bring new people along to church. God is faithful, and every year new people do come and the church continues to grow.
NORTHERN TERRITORY: WAYNE & MANDY OLDFIELD-JONES
Nungalinya College, in Darwin, trains Indigenous men and women for Christian discipleship, ministry roles and church and community leadership. As the Anglican Dean at Nungalinya, Wayne arranges student enrolments and travel, and supports students when they are at college. Mandy teaches in the Cert III and Cert IV Christian Ministry and Theology courses and is the Cross-Cultural Awareness Coordinator at Nungalinya.
SELF FUNDED RURAL MISSION PARTNERS
Peter and Lee Caspersonn are members of our church, who retired from school teaching and moved to Hay in April 2011. They went to Hay to help the local lay parish leaders as BCA Co-Workers, particularly in the areas of school scripture and leading bible study groups. St Paul’s Anglican Church Hay has been without an ordained minister for more than five years. The parish also contains churches in the villages of Carrathool, Booligal and Oxley. Every year a team from EAC heads to Hay for a week of mission.
