2023 has already been a big year for Baptist Mission Australia in SA/NT, here is a quick wrap up of the events so far.

May Mission Month 2023: Alongsiders has concluded. I have had a busy but joyful time visiting churches throughout SA and Darwin over May and beyond. A huge thank you to all who participated. I pray you were blessed as you focussed on God’s great mission plan for all the world. The resources will remain on the website throughout the year so you may continue to use them at any time.

I’m thrilled to announce that Rev. Jason Hoet, Senior Pastor at Unley Park Baptist is SA’s new Baptist Mission Australia board member. Please uphold Jason in prayer as he takes on this position.

We welcome Mal and Chris Good to the Outback Australia team. Mal is the Senior Pastor at Casuarina Baptist church in Darwin. They have served there since 2017 and have discerned a call from God to walk with and serve the Kalkarindji and Lajamanu communities. Mal and Chris have started their partnership development journey and are keen to hear from churches and individuals who would like to partner with them.

After hearing God’s call to overseas service and over two years of partnership development, training, trusting and prayer, Suzanne is heading to the Silk Road area. Her commissioning service will take place on June 11th at Port Pirie Baptist church.

We have a number of folks on home assignment through 2023. David and Susie Haydon and the kids are here from Malawi. They are hoping to return the second half of June. Dema and Carolyn, from Thailand, are visiting churches and groups around SA as well as other states. Rob and Deb Griffith will be returning from Cambodia in August.
