Moving Down in Life

seasia(3) 1976X1512Matt was recently appointed to a new role in Baptist Mid-Missions as the Asia-Pacific Field Administrator. However, this ministry will be based out of Taiwan, rather than returning to work from the Home Office in Cleveland, OH. His region of oversight extends geographically from Russia to the southern tip of New Zealand; it includes India, South-East Asia, the Far East, Oceania, and Australia, and it incorporates several Creative Access nations.

The focus of this new ministry is to provide encouragement, spiritual care, and oversight to the BMM missionaries in this region. By remaining geographically close to these missionaries, he will be better able to understand and minister to their needs.

Matt & Marla’s local church planting ministry in Taiwan will continue. While there will be some adjustments to their local responsibilities, they plan to remain vitally involved in the ongoing growth and development of Cornerstone Baptist Church, Kaohsiung Taiwan.

Jesus reminded his disciples that he who would be greatest must be servant of all. In the economy of God’s kingdom, we move up by going down. Greatness is not measured by how many people serve us, but by how many people we serve. Please pray for Matt and Marla as they elevate their level of service to God’s choice missionary servants.
