ChapmansThe Chapmans were assigned as missionaries on the Asia-Pacific Region in 2007, where they have been serving in a variety of roles at the Kudjip Nazarene Hospital / mission station, and now most recently at the Melanesia Nazarene Bible College.  These rolls have included overseeing building projects, working in administrative capacities at the nurses training college, teaching elementary children at the mission school, coordination of work and witness teams and filling those shoes of “all other things as assigned.”  Mike has received great joy through facilitating a training program that involves a carpentry shop, where students/pastors are able to obtain vocational woodworking skills while attaining their theological education.
