Bangkok, Thailand:  The Asia-Pacific Regional team has been carefully monitoring the health status of Southeast Asia Field (SEA) Strategy Coordinator, Rev. David Phillips.

In light of his recent diagnosis of cancer, and the recommendation of the Global Mission Medical Committee that David immediately return to the USA for the start of chemo treatments, it has left us needing to appoint an interim Field Strategy Coordinator for the SEA Field.

David Phillips making rapid recovery - but new challenges ahead. 


Following consultation with David Phillips and Global Mission Director, Dr. Verne Ward, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Rev. Collin Elliott as the interim Field Strategy Coordinator for the SEA Field.

Collin and Shireen Elliott have just recently arrived to the Region from Africa, and assumed this new interim responsibility as of August 13th.

Asia-Pacific Region Welcomes New Team Members!

For matters concerning the SEA Field, please direct your communications to the SEA Field Strategy Coordinator, which will be forwarded to Rev. Elliott.

Please join us in praying for full healing and quick recovery and that David and Naomi can return to the Field at the end of their Medical Leave of Absence.
