Prayer Needs

  • God to use us to raise up pastors, carpenters and others who will impact their communities in a positive way.
  • Pray for faithful Christians across all denominations to be encouraged and press on to support PNG in the many challenges it faces.
  • Pray for the Extensive travels and Zoom meetings throughout Pacific-Southeast Asia, with Cheri serving as a regional director for Global Partners.


Robyn sensed the Lord’s call to mission while a teen at a Wesleyan Youth camp.

Jay came to faith as a young adult. His journey into mission evolved through small steps of obedience as a new Christian.

By working with His church, Jay & Robyn want to glorify the Lord by testifying to God’s grace in Jesus and reflecting His character to the nations. God has equipped them to do this through discipling mission workers and reaching out to those who have come to Australia.
