For every front-line combat soldier, there are approximately eight people supporting them to be there. In mission it is no different! We live in Chiang Mai where, as a personnel manager, Jason gives administrative and logistical support to Overseas Mission Fellowship (OMF) mission partners working in various locations across East Asia. Tracy looks after the family, leads a weekly school prayer meeting, a Sunday school team and, as a child safety officer, is available to help if OMF mission partners have concerns about the safety of children. We have two children, Ruby and Libby, who are both in secondary school.
We are called to share the gospel of Christ and the love and kindness of God in whatever situation we find ourselves.
We are seconded to Overseas Mission Fellowship (OMF): Jason is an area personnel manager, and Tracy is a mum, Sunday school team leader and part-time child safety officer.

Jason became a Christian at age 21. After thinking that he would never leave the security of a career in banking, he found himself at Bible college in Scotland. This was a foundational time and he left with a sense that God was calling him to something overseas. Tracy became a Christian at age 14 and has felt called to mission work ever since. She initially trained with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) and later became a nurse.
Our first experience of serving overseas together was a placement in Russia for a year with Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), after which we joined Church Mission Society. They sent us to work in Nepal where we spent eight years. We were seconded to United Mission to Nepal (UMN) and worked at Tansen Mission Hospital and Tansen Nursing School. Jason was team leader for the foreign medical missionaries and their families and Tracy was a part-time nurse tutor at the nursing school and full-time mum.
In 2012, we were seconded to OMF in North Thailand. We both currently work in roles that provide support to others who work in cross-cultural contexts, helping them settle and move forward in their lives and ministry. We are passionate in our desire to see lives changed and renewed by the power of Christ.
